Abstract:
Four different methods of separating indoor and outdoor water use in apartment complexes were studied to determine which one of the estimators was the best one. The four methods follow: (1) Actual Use Method; (2) Minimum Monthly Use; (3) Appliance Monthly Use; and (4) All Indoor Water Use method. The average indoor and outdoor water use per month per apartment household of each method were calculated to compare to each other. Also, several characteristics pertaining to complex size, average rent per month per household, vacancy rate, and manager's highest education level were examined to determine their effects on the indoor and outdoor water use.
