Abstract

Residential water use has become a critical issue of the built environment due to drought and increasing water retail price in many regions around the world. However, there is limited research done to understand water use behavior in residential buildings. This paper presents data analytics and results from monitoring data of daily water use in 50 single-family homes in Texas, USA. Based on data analysis, residents' regular water use patterns are investigated. The results help generate awareness of water use behavior and support further studies in clustering water use behavior patterns and developing water use models for simulation.
