The consumption of water at home

The consumption of water at home is distributed in the following way:

30% emptying the cistern of the toilet

30% in the shower and the bath

20% in the washer and the dishwasher

20% cleaning the house, watering plants and other uses

Only a small part, among 3 and 6 litres, we use it for drinking and cooking!

But, how many litres do we spend on average in a day?

The domestic water consumption in Barcelona reached the amount of 105,5 litres per day and person during 2015. This number can be found in the 2016 Water consumption report of Barcelona and it is a positive result if we compare it with 2005, when the number ascended up to the 122 litres. In spite of the progress it is necessary to keep improving to avoid the unnecessary waste of water.
