Save water

Every time you flush, shower or bathe, you’re using fresh drinking water. As we live in the UK’s driest region and resources are precious for our communities, businesses and wildlife, we’re keen to help you save it.

At home, we each use around 120 litres of water a day and the average household spends some £400 a year on their metered bill. This is likely to be higher if you have an inefficient appliance or a dripping tap. 

Imagine if you could reduce that amount by 20 litres, every day? That’s the equivalent of two full buckets. And think how much water and money could be saved if everyone in your house, street and community did this, every day? That’s a lot of water saved for tomorrow and extra money to enjoy other things.
