Working together to save water
Making small changes in water usage can make a big difference
There are lots of things you can do to help us preserve the supply of water.
- fit a Save a Flush device in your toilets,
- fix dripping taps
- use a timer to reduce your shower time by a minute
- fit an eco-shower head
- If you’re buying a new dishwasher or washing machine check the eco label
- and install a water butt in your garden.
Sports clubs or community groups
If you’re a sports club or community group, you can work with us to build, own or run programmes to improve water use.
Work with us to promote efficient water use to residents, ranging from advice to water-saving tips and devices.
Work with us to introduce building controls to deliver water-efficient homes and developments. You could also commit in your local plans to having daily per person water consumption of 110 litres.
Work with us to install metering and other water-saving devices. Initiatives such as introducing water-efficient white goods and greywater recycling could help us to reduce the amount of water the average new home uses to as low as 110 litres a day.
Surprisingly new homes are most likely to have leaks, and 81% of these are associated with the flush valve on toilets!
