What Is Typical Residential Flow Rate?

Households typically consume between 100 to 120 gallons per person per day. The flow rate per minute is typically six to 12 gallons. Flow rate measures the volume of water that passes through your home's pipes. If your home is struggling to keep up with the pressure, it may be time to get professional help. Common issues include well pump pressure switch settings and low incoming water pressure from municipal water supply lines.
