 1  Install a water efficient shower head (about 20% of household water is used in the bathroom) to save on water and energy bills due to heating less water.

 2   Install a thermostatically controlled shower valve which will save water by delivering the required temperature instantly.

 3  Reduce your showering time - every minute you cut from your shower time saves up to nine litres of water.

 4   Update your toilet cistern to a duel flush system - ten half flushes saves enough water for a five minute shower.

 5   Check your dripping taps; changing the washers can significantly cut your water bill by hundreds of litres a year, and in the case of hot taps save energy too.

 6   Check your property for overflowing toilets and water tanks. 

 7   Have your water meter checked to make sure you are only paying for the water you are using. 

 8   Have your house's plumbing checked for leaking underground pipes you may be paying for thousands of litres of water that is soaking away into the ground.

 9   Next time you buy any appliance that uses water, make sure you check the water efficiency rating - a washing machine rated AAA or higher can save 50 litres per load, and can also be used at a lower temperature to save on energy bills.

Please feel free to Contact Us at Dean Evans Plumbing & Heating any time for free advice or an operative can examine your entire plumbing system for water wastage and leakage and recommend improvements, where necessary.

This is almost invariably due to a faulty tap washer. You can simply fix a new tap, or replace the washer. Both jobs are within the remit of the competent DIY enthusiast with the right tools, but there can be complications, so if your in any doubt get the professionals in and Contact Us
