As an example of how much water can be saved in just one location, Las Vegas, Nevada, consider this:

About 40 million people visit Las Vegas annually and stay in about 150,000 rooms. The average room occupancy rate is 2.1 people and the average length of stay is 3.3 days. Given the water usage habits of the average American (see above), the table below shows some eye-opening savings in water, using a conservative 33% savings in water usage.

Add the 600,000 locals who reside permanently in Las Vegas, that number jumps by another 11 million gallons to about 166 MILLION gallons!

Assuming two faucets in each hotel room, this translates to 300,000 faucets. Add in the local population at 4 residents per household and two bathrooms and a kitchen per house, it adds another 450,000 units, for a total of 750,000 faucets potentially, JUST IN LAS VEGAS! ! It is easy to see how this concept could be very useful to a company to grow sales as well as do good for the planet at the same time!
