Why should I save water?
Saving water can have financial and environmental benefits.
Keeps your water bills affordable
If you are on a water meter you only pay for the water you use. Using less water helps keep your bills down.
Heating water in homes for cooking, washing and cleaning costs you money in energy bills and produces 5% of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions.
Lower charges for everyone
Using less water means we don't need to treat and pump so much water. When we spend less on energy, chemicals and additional reservoirs or borehole, these savings get passed onto you.
Using less water reduces the amount that has to be treated as waste. Water that goes straight down the drain without being properly used is a waste and is costly to you, the environment and us.
Protects the environment
Taking less water out of the ground, rivers and reservoirs is better for wildlife and the environment.
Helps secure water supplies for the future
Reducing the amount of water you waste now will help secure supplies for your family in the future.
Reduce the chances of water restrictions
Such as hosepipe bans during a drought.
