Summer water saving tips

Every last drop

You can feel summer approaching; it’s getting hot, really hot. Sometimes it’s easy for us to switch off the care of saving water hope of keeping cool and keeping our grass green. By following some useful tips you can make sure you save water and do your bit for the environment and save some extra cash along the way.

Summer saving tips

Bathroom. Almost 20% of household water consumption is in the bathroom.

1. Having the tap on while you brush your teeth uses 4300 litres of water per person a year so don’t forget to turn it off.

2. Keep showers down to 3 minutes. Every minute you cut saves up to 20 litres.

Kitchen. Around 6% of household water consumption is in the kitchen.

1. Instead of putting your vegetables under running water put either a plug in the sink or use a bowl.

2. Only use your dishwasher when it is full.

Garden. Watering the garden on average uses a massive 43% of household water.

1. When washing your car, do it on the lawn. This way you are washing your car and watering the grass at the same time

2. For washing the car, use a bucket rather than leaving the hose running. A hose uses 20 litres a minute.

Dripping taps. A dripping tap can be a big waster of water and money. It can waste more than 24,000 litres a year.

1. Turn the tap off tight

2. Changing the washer. A simple job easily installed by your plumber.
