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:
We are gathering data to document how much hot
water is wasted in everyday homes throughout the
hot water waste in existing homes creates a baseline
from which actionable solutions may be possible for
homeowners and municipalities.

weaknesses. For a one-page document showing
