This tool helps you estimate the total units of water needed for your irrigation system based on specific parameters.

## UTAPS Estimator Calculator

This UTAPS (Unique Taps Average Per Week) calculator helps you estimate the total amount of water used by taps in a given week. This can be particularly useful for understanding water usage and planning for water resources.

### How to Use It:

- Enter the number of taps you are estimating for.
- Provide the flow rate of the taps in liters per minute. This rate can typically be found in the tap specifications or measured using a flow meter.
- Input the number of hours the taps are used per day.
- Specify the number of days per week the taps are used.
- Click the “Calculate” button to see the estimated amount of water used in liters per week.

### How It Calculates:

The calculator multiplies the number of taps by the flow rate in liters per minute, the usage hours per day, and the number of days per week to arrive at the total water usage in liters per week. The formula used is:

Total Usage (liters/week) = Number of Taps × Flow Rate (liters/minute) × Usage Hours per Day × Days per Week

### Limitations:

While this calculator provides a good estimate, it has the following limitations:

- It assumes that the flow rate is constant, which may not be true in real-world scenarios where water pressure can fluctuate.
- The actual usage hours per day and days per week can vary slightly from the user’s input.
- It does not account for any water-saving devices that might be installed, which could reduce water usage.

## Use Cases for This Calculator
