I’m one of those people who just pay their water bill month in month out (well, the husband does) and the most real water saving I do is turn the tap off full blast whilst the children are brushing their teeth.
Then I was invited to take part in a water survey to see how much I could save. Oh my goodness! I waste A LOT of water and in turn a lot of money.
Did you know 25% of your energy bills is spent on heating water? And cutting your family’s showering time by only one minute each can cut £120 a year from your energy and water bill?
According to my results I could easily save around 1,825 litres of water by simply turning the tap off when brushing teeth and taking two minutes less in the shower. I have also been sent some free items to help me save water when we flush the toilet and water our plants.
It takes less than 5 minutes to complete and could save you up to £95 a year – giving you a personalised report including advice and, dependent on your water board, free products worth up to £58.
