Go on a scavenger hunt to explore the ways that your home uses water indoors and outdoors.<p></p><div>For a house with a yard:</div><div><ol><li><span style="font-size:13px;">I am located out by the curb or at the edge of your landscape. It records how much water you use. </span><br></li><li>I allow water to enter your home and landscape. I can stop the water flow during an emergency leak.</li><li>I control how often your landscape is watered. Control me or I will use your water wildly.</li><li>I release water to your plants.</li><li>Cool yourself off or pretend your a fish in my waters.</li><li>I help you clean your dirty hands. I use 1.5 to 2.5 gallons per minute in my work.</li><li>I keep you clean from head to toe, like an on-demand rainstorm. I use 2.5 gallons per minute.</li><li>I take away your food and liquid after your body is done with it. I use 1.6 gallons each flush.</li><li>I keep your clothes clean so you can wear them again and again. I use 20 to 40 gallons of water to do my dirty, spinning work.</li><li>I drink lots of water, especially after a good, hard play in the yard.</li></ol></div><div><br></div><div>For a condo or a townhome:</div><div><ol><li>I help you clean your dirty hands.
