I recently received a water bill, such a lovely occasion this was. Anyway, that is not what has been perplexing me since.
What is perplexing me is that I have apparently used/consumed 7,000 litres of water in five weeks. I am a single person living in a one-bedroom flat, which has a shower only (no bath) and lacks a washing machine, never mind a dishwasher.
I have read that a ten minute shower uses two-hundred litres of water [O.O] and that brushing one's teeth uses about eight - I can't accept this being true in my case, as I use an electric toothbrush and only run the water for a couple of seconds intermittently to rinse it - together with flushing the toilet requiring sixteen litres of water [O.O] and washing the "pots" about seven also [O.O].
Admittedly, I really don't have a life otherwise I wouldn't be starting a thread about a water bill, but how is this possible? Such "consumption" equates to over 1,000 litres of water per week.
So... does anyone have any thoughts on this? Do you know how much water you consume? Do you ever read your water bill or do you just pay it by direct debit and swear when you receive the paperwork to inform you how much you are about to be charged?
Any input appreciated. *Blushes at apparent lack of having a life*.
