Home Water Works and Water Use Calculator

January 27, 2012

AWE's consumer website Home Water Works, features an advanced household water calculator. This stunning website was created to give consumers the best and most relevant information about conserving water at home, and offers water saving tips and information about every major water-using fixture and appliance found in homes today.

As noted, central feature of the Home Water Works  is the Water Use Calculator – a powerful and accurate tool for estimating where water is used in your home. Answer a few simple questions and the water calculator quickly estimates how much water is used for toilets, showers, clothes washers, faucets, dishwashers, and even leaks. The Water Use Calculator tells you where and how to increase water efficiency in your home by identifying the end uses where water can be saved and the end uses where a high level of efficiency has already been achieved.

The Home Water Works website provides the most current information about residential water use and efficiency for the entire house. From fixing a leaking toilet to improving the quality of the soil in the yard, Home Water Works provides essential and up-to-date information on how to make your home as water efficient as possible.

The Home Water Works website was developed by the Alliance for Water Efficiency and was made possible in part by a grant from The Home Depot Foundation The Water Use Calculator was originally created by The Field Museum  and was modified for the Home Water Works website with their permission.
