FAQs: How much water is enough for a home?

Question: Is 1 1/2 gallons per minute enough water to supply our home?

Answer: Yes it is. A 1 1/2 gallon per minute well can provide 2,160 gallons per day. With a Well Manager® this is plenty of water to supply even the most elaborate home if irrigation is not a consideration. This may not be the only consideration, though. Some municipalities have an ordinance which says you must have a certain minimum gallon per minute yield for a two, three, four or more bedroom home. In order to get approval for a four bedroom home you may have to go to the local Board of Health and ask for an exception for the use of an engineered system to meet the peak demand requirement.
