Have you ever measured the flow rate of a faucet in your home? It is fairly simple. All you need to do is open up your faucet fully and fill a measuring container while timing it. Flow rate is measured in gallons per minute, and a normal flow rate should be around a gallon per minute, give or take a half gallon. If you have more than this, you’re most likely wasting water whenever you use your faucet. To conserve water, you could install an aerator. An aerator will mix the water with air to make it have more force without using more water, leading to water savings.

You also should avoid leaving your faucet running while doing other things, such as brushing your teeth or shaving, since this can waste quite a bit of water.

If your flow rate is very low, this could indicate that you have a problem with your pressure regulator.
