5 Water Saving Tips
Did you know that every person in the UK uses approximately 150 liters of water every day? But by making a few changes in your day-to-day routine you can help to save water and save money.
Here are 5 water saving tips:
1. A dripping tap can waste 15 litres of water a day, or 5,500 litres of water a year. Fixing or replacing a tap can be a pretty painless DIY project.
2. Take a shorter shower. A shower can use anything between 6 and 45 litres per minute. Also look into replacing old showerheads.
3. The average household’s leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of wasted water every year, or the amount of water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry.
4. Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth – this can save 6 litres of water per minute.
5. Install a water meter. When you’re paying your utility provider for exactly how much water you use, laid out in an itemised bill, there’s an incentive to waste less of the stuff.
So instead of letting money go down the drain, be water wise and follow the above steps to help reduce you water use and cost.
