Ten ways to save water...

1. Turn off the tap - a running tap wastes over 6 litres of water per minute.

2. Fit taps and shower heads with flow restrictors- this cuts water use by half.

3. Fix dripping taps - they waste at least 5,500 litres of water a year.

4. Take a short shower instead of a bath.

5. Have a full load when you wash your clothes.

6. When washing your dishes in the sink, use a plug.

7. Fill the dishwasher before putting it on and use the eco setting.

8. Put a save-a-flush in your cistern - it will save one litre of water per flush.

9. Purchase water efficient appliances.

10. Do you have a garden? Install a water butt to collect rainwater, and use it to water your garden or wash your car.
