Fine Music Radio — It is very hard to imagine our daily lives without readily available water! How does a city of millions cope with the harsh reality that there is no water in the taps? How tough is it to run the home on 50 litres per person per day Well I am going to stick my neck out and say that is far too much. Surely, we should start at the other end of the scale. How much water does our body need to live? I’ll take a guess and say somewhere between 1 to 2 litres max pppd I think that should be our starting point. Add 2 litres for cooking, 2 litres for a cloth wash/ 2litres to wash dishes (very often items just need a wipe and coffee cups do not need to be washed after every cup… just improves the flavour!!!/ we then need about 5 litres for a loo flush to which all recycled washing water can be added and/ or sea water can be used if available.
