Welcome to Reality.
Reality-LLC is a
water-focused firm based in southern Arizona.
All water is a precious resource here -- as it is
where you live.
We're especially focused on HOT water.
That's because everything about conserving water and
energy changes when you consider hot water.
Here's why: Heating a given mass of water requires
an extraordinary amount of energy. In fact,
only one substance on earth requires more
energy to heat than water! Most of us never come in
contact with liquid ammonia, yet we use hot water
numerous times every day in our busy lives.
Our current work:
Our wasted water data collection
project ended on September
What remains to be done is writing an article to be
published in Home Energy magazine in
late 2015 or early 2016. In the meantime, you
may click on the data collection link below to see our
methodology. Please also open list of Starbucks
gift cards winners. This was Reality LLC’s way
of saying ‘thank you’ to all those who helped gather
data for this project.

plumbing solution presents its own strengths and
weaknesses. For a one-page document showing
