Saving water

How much water is wasted at home?

You may be surprised how much water is wasted in your home. Here are some ways to reduce unnecessary losses:

  • Make sure the toilet cistern and taps are not leaking.
  • Use a modern dual-flush system A full flush uses about 6 litres of water, while a partial flush uses just 3 litres. Older toilets use up to 15 litres of water.
  • Don’t throw rubbish down the toilet as it can block the drains, creating a problem that is expensive to fix.
