Water saving tips

Save money and protect the environment with our simple water saving tips to reduce your water consumption.

Small changes – big savings?

Sometimes taking small steps to water efficiency can make a huge difference to your bottom line.

General upkeep

  • fix leaking taps – it could save you a bathful of water a day
  • check for leaking pipes – use our tips to reduce wastage
  • clean business vehicles with a bucket and sponge – or use a hose with a shut-off valve, so it isn’t constantly running
  • use pipe insulation so your pipes aren’t at risk of bursting in a cold spell.

In your bathrooms

  • fit a free water saving hippo in your cistern – it can save up to three litres per flush
  • make sure taps are always turned off
  • invest in water saving devices – we can retrofit, or install new.

Before spending anything on new water-saving measures, it’s a good idea to draw up a simple water management plan. Our teams save water for a living – get in touch and they’ll be more than happy to talk through options for your business.

Outdoors

  • use a broom and a bucket of water to wash down the patio, rather than a hose
  • install a water butt to collect rainwater – perfect for watering your green areas.
