The Residential End Uses of Water Study (REUWS) remains the best description of residential end uses of water (Mayer et al.
Lutz (2004) used the REUWS data on total volume and duration of water draws, along with the peak and mode flow rates during draws, to develop an equation for calculating wasted hot water during shower events (Lutz 2004).
When Lutz (2004) performed a rough calculation using data from the REUWS report and found an average of 20% of the volume of shower water was wasted, the approximation probably was low.
