An essential aid in designing and operating water installations and networks

Water-use Info - Start



Water-Use Info provides a good understanding of water demand and water discharge, in quantity as well as in quality. These aspects can be examined for a variety of design or operational scenarios for networks and installations.

For example, for different demographic scenarios with different household compositions, or for technical developments in water-using appliances, involving increased or decreased water use, or the use of different water sources, such as rain water.

Water-Use Info benefits

  • Understanding of water use over the course of the day, broken down by end-use – how much water is needed, and when, for what purpose (e.g., toilet flushing, showering, consumption).
  • Understanding of required water quality and quality of discharged water over the course of the day. Insight into quantitative and qualitative water demand in the design stage of the drinking water installation and distribution network.
  • Insight into quantitative and qualitative water discharge for the recovery of thermal energy and nutrients from wastewater. Insight into quantitative and qualitative water demand and discharge when matching water demand with alternative sources of water, such as recycled water and rain water.
  • Insight into quantitative and qualitative water demand in the operating stage of the drinking water distribution network.
