If recent events have taught us anything, it’s how precious our water is and how important our communities are.
Anglian Water serves the driest region in the UK. With increasingly unpredictable weather patterns it is even more important to save water where we can and we want to help you do just that.
Did you know on average showers will account for at least 30% of your daily household water usage? A 10-minute shower will use on average 80 litres, if you have a power shower it can use twice as much more water than a bath full! A shorter shower can help you be an all-rounder saver - saving water, energy, money. Reducing your time by 1 minute can save your household up to £120 a year*
*£120 saved a year for an average four person household. All figures quoted from the Energy Saving Trust Report – ‘At Home With Water’ – July 2013
