Personal Notes

April 2016: It seems I need to trim my usage a bit as we are slightly higher than average, at 173 litres per person.

My reason for checking this is that we just received a notice at our new property saying that our water usage had risen considerably, since the last account. Maybe the property being empty for some months before, was the real reason for the sudden jump in usage. From nothing to 173 per person 🙂
