Tips to help save money on your water bills.

1st September 2022

We know how important it is to be able to save money on our bills, especially with all of the rising costs recently. We have put together a few simple tips that could help you save some pennies.

Check for Water Leaks

Sometimes leaks can happen without you even knowing, so it’s always a good idea to regularly check pipes, drains, and radiators for any puddles. Not only does every drop add unwanted extra money to your bills, but it can cause extensive damage to your home.

Regular Maintenance

Many people don’t realise that household appliances such as toilets and sinks can be using more water than they should be. An increase in your usual water bill could be due to leaking taps or loose pipes. Regularly checking your taps and toilets could prevent extra water usage.

Water saving options 

There are many water-saving options you could implement into your home. These could include opting for a water-efficient showerhead, leaky loo detection strips, cistern bags, tap aerators, and a water butt. All of these can help keep costs down and create less water usage for your home.

Don’t waste water

It sounds like an obvious one we know, but there are simple ways to avoid using more water than necessary. By reducing your time in the shower or swapping for a quick shower rather than a bath. You could turn off the tap whilst brushing your teeth. Only boil the kettle with the water you need. Doing washing when the load is full rather than lots of half loads. These will help reduce your water usage and are easy to do.

Replace your old appliances

Older appliances can waste a lot of water that isn’t necessary. Replacing your old appliances for newer ones can be a big investment but it could save you money and avoid issues in the long run. The best appliances to go for are ones that are economical and have better water efficiency.
