This isn't a horrible thread. Yes, more thought could have been put into it but it's a valid topic about water consumption and how we probably use too much.

I'm deleting all of the spam.

well, I don't think I can measure the amount of water I use...

But I drink tons of it. I'm a renal stone former, so I have to wash down all the salts whenever I eat.

Well, according to:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_depth/629/629/5086298.stm
My family (of 4) uses about 506 liters a day, this of course varies since I don't live in the UK nor use European appliances, etc.
And according to that same link, the average person in the UK uses 155 liters a day.

None taken. Most of us are just completely unawares of how, and what we're doing with ourselves and to the rest of the world.

i drink alot thus i use alot.

i read somewhere that americans use more water than anyone else. that aside, i shower twice a day: morning plus after my workouts. i also drink a lot of water. other than those three things, i try to limit my water use by not using the dishwasher or leaving water running when i brush my teeth etc... i also shut off my water when i shower in b/t rinsing and soaping myself up.
