Greywater quantity produced by one worshipper was 2.7 liter/worshipper/one prayer for each mosque. The results showed the maximum value of worshippers' numbers that performed the ablution were in adhuhr prayer time on Friday and showed that the maximum worshippers' numbers were in Almaghrib prayer, then Adhuhr, Alasr, Alisha'a, and Alfajr.
