How much water am I using? How do I compare? How can I help conserve?

Home water conservation is easy once you understand how and where you can use less.

This quick and easy Water Calculator shows you which water uses in your home are efficient and which are not and offers simple conservation tips that save water and energy.

The Water Calculator compares your water use to a similar average and efficient house in your region. It estimates the energy savings and carbon footprint of your hot water usage, and helps identify specific areas for improving overall household water efficiency.

Water conservation is easy and the Water Calculator gets you started right away.
