Saving water

By using less water you can save money on your bills, while also helping the environment.


What are the benefits of saving water?

Using less water will help you save money on your water bill if you have a water meter. Saving hot water can substantially reduce your energy bill too.

Saving water also benefits the environment as less carbon is produced treating and transporting your water. Plus, it means more water is available for our rivers and streams during dry weather, which also benefits local wildlife.

Got a leaky loo?
