How your savings are calculated

Step 1 find the cost per gallon

$2.80 fresh water + $2.80 waste water = $5.60 per 1000 gallons

$5.60 / 1000 = $0.0056 per gallon

Step 2 find the difference in usage

2.5 gpm - 2 gpm = 0.5 gallons per minute savings

Step 3 find water savings

0.5 gpm * 13.2 minutes of daily usage = 6.6 gallons daily savings

6.6 * 365 = 2,409 gallons yearly savings

2,409 * 3 years expected product life = 7,227 gallons lifetime savings

Step 4 find money savings

6.6 gallons daily savings * $0.0056 per gallon = $0.037 daily savings

2,409 gallons yearly savings * $0.0056 per gallon = $13.49 yearly savings

7,227 gallons lifetime savings * $0.0056 per gallon = $40.47 lifetime savings
