Save water and reduce those bills

Reducing your water usage with some of the following tips will save you money if you’re on a water meter – or just help the environment if you’re not:

  • A quick shower uses far less than a bath
  • When washing up dishes, don’t leave a tap running. If you want to rinse items, wash several and then rinse together.
  • Don’t use a dish washer – they will always use more water than washing up with a bowl.
  • When it is time to replace your existing washing machine find a water efficient machine. An inefficient machine will use about 60 litres per wash as against and efficient one which will use about half that.
  • Turn the tap off when you clean your teeth
  • Take a 1 or 2 litre water bottle, fill it and put it in the toilet cistern – then you will use 1 or 2 litres less each time you flush.
  • Assuming you have a garden that needs watering from time to time, then by far the best thing you can do is buy a water butt and connect it to a house or shed downpipe.
  • Recycling ‘Grey’ water generally involves considerable expensive (i e connected to a toilet system etc) but if you are prepared for a long pay-back then you might consider this option
  • Mulch your garden plants (ie cover with leaves, wood chippings or some other natural materials) as this reduces the need to water
