Become a Citizen Scientist
Reality-LLC is my consulting firm based in southern Arizona. Water is a precious resource here—as it is where you live. That's why we help homeowners, developers, municipalities, and businesses analyze water usage, and then plan plumbing installations to conserve water, energy and money.
As someone aware of your environment, you know many areas have water issues. You see it every day on TV or in the press: Is our water safe to drink? Is there enough? Are we headed toward restrictions or rationing? How about water for farming? And water use has an impact on your wallet: The average home spends around 20% of its annual energy bill just heating hot water.
I've started a national data collection project using information from homes like yours. So far, over 100 people have submitted data; I'm seeking 1,000 entries.
It's a citizen science project that you can join. These data will be used to develop local practical solutions to help communities and homeowners reduce wasted water, energy, time and money. It's a win-win for everybody.
Are you willing to gather data on the water and time you waste while waiting for hot water in your home? It will take you about 10 minutes, total. This is a great project to do with children. You may be surprised by the results.
