Simple Water-Saving Tips

Consider Low-Flow Fixture Options

Low-flow toilets, showerheads and taps use innovative features and clever design to use less water without compromising on performance. This makes them a win-win for both the environment and your wallet, reducing your water consumption without affecting your showers, taps or flushing.

Insulate your Pipes

If you ever find yourself having to run your hand under a running shower or tap for a few seconds before it's running decently hot, it's probably a sign that heat has been lost between your heater and the appliance.

Installing insulation on your water pipes prevents heat loss from the source, so you don't have to run water to heat it up. This translates to less wasted water down the drain and less energy used to reheat the cooled water, saving you money on your energy usage as well as your water usage.


Address Leaks ASAP

A leak doesn't need to be catastrophic to have an impact on your water usage – Even a slightly dripping tap will waste around a gallon of water a day. That's nearly a whole bathtub of wasted water in the course of a month, and even more if you have a more persistent leak.

Nipping these leaks in the bud as soon as they develop will both save potentially hundreds of pounds in the long-term and prevent expensive

Optimise your Water Heater

Showers don't need to be furnace-hot to be comfortable – Adjusting your water heater's settings to 49°C means money back in your pocket and reduces the risk of scalding yourself.

For extra savings, consider a water heater with a built-timer that only heats water during peak usage times.

Practice Water-Saving Habits

Encourage your household or business to embrace simple but effective water-saving practices like taking shorter showers, turning off the tap while brushing teeth or shaving, and only run full loads in the dishwasher and washing machine.

Once these habit changes become second-nature, the energy and money savings will add up very quickly.



It's the little things that add up to big savings
