Household bills seem to be rising all of the time, and the cost-of-living gets higher and higher, so here are some ways to save some water around the home. When you consider that a single dripping tap can waste 5,500 litres and £18 of your hard-earned cash each year, there’s no doubt that every little helps. We have no intention of preaching as relates to saving water. Much of these points will come down to personal choice, but here are some factual ways in which water can be reserved.
As we rush around multitasking from home to home, we may leave the taps on because our hands are full, returning moments later to switch them off. But this habit mounts up to a lot of wasted water over time. Similarly, when we brush our teeth, it is worth turning the tap off when brushing our teeth. We only need the tap to be on for rinsing.
If you have a leaky or dripping tap, Synergy Plumbing Services can help. We are your locally trusted plumbers in Loughborough, Hathern, Shepshed, Kegworth, Quorn, Sileby, North Leicester, and surrounding areas. Our engineers can get the problem fixed with no fuss.
Use a washing up bowl
A washing up bowl will capture water to help with washing your pots, rather than allowing it to run straight down the plughole.
Wash with a full load
Washing your clothes with a full load is an obvious way to make the most of the important resources used such as water and electricity. If you have a dishwasher, make sure it is full before turning it on as well.
Swap your shower head
An aerated shower head is a great way to minimise water usage without compromising on pressure.
Think before you flush
We are not going to tell you when you should and shouldn’t flush your own toilet, but saving flushes will undoubtably save water. But thankfully, there are also clever systems such as dual flush and these will save a significant amount of water because you can choose a quick or full flush.
Not only does saving water around your home or commercial property save hard earned cash, but it is also a great way to do your bit for the environment. If you have any plumbing or heating issues at present, please don’t hesitate to talk to the friendly team at Synergy Plumbing Services.
