How many gallons of water fall to the earth from clouds each day?
1000000000 (one billion) tons of rain fall to earth every minute. There are 1440 minutes in a day (60min x 24 hrs) There are 2000 pounds in a ton 1000000000 tons x 2000 pounds = 2000000000000 (2 trillion) pounds per min 2000000000000 pounds per min. x 1440 minutes in a day = 288000000000000 (288 trillion) pounds of water fall to earth every day 288000000000000 (288 trillion) pounds / 8 pounds in a gallon = 36000000000000 (36 trillion) gallons of rain fall to earth
Municipal planners assume each individual (regardless of whether or not it is a family) uses about 150 gallons of water a day. They also assume that about 100 gallons of that enters the sewer system in that day. Each person uses about 80-100 gallons of water per day. So it depends how many people in the family.

(and that's just the US) There is about 1.4 billion cubic kilometers of water = 369,840,873,300,000,000,000 gallons. 75% of the earth is covered in water, and only about 3% of it is drinkable freshwater. Only 1% of this freshwater is actually accessible because the rest of it is frozen in glaciers.
2010 water withdrawal in the US was estimated to be 355,000 million gallons per day (Mgal/d), or 397,000 thousand acre-feet per year (acre-ft/yr). 86% of this is freshwater.

Planet Earth is made from meteors. Each meteors contained Hydrogen and Oxygen (H20). 5% of the rock was water. When Earth settled down and the top layer became solid (The Crust) but still really hot, that 5% from every rock evaporated causing clouds that would rain from thousands of years. causing the sea
