We use a lot of water in the UK - on average, a person will use around 150 litres in a single day, and we spend a quarter of our annual energy bill on heating it alone.
That's a lot of brews and showers.
There's ways of saving money when it comes to water, and 15 million British households are eligible for free water and energy-saving products, thanks to a campaign by Save Water Save Money.
Visit the Save Water Save Money website, and fill in a small questionnaire, and you'll get a personalised water usage report, which will show you how much water you're using, and the like.
In return, you'll get sent a box of energy and water saving things, for free. It includes timers, new shower heads, and more, which will all help you save money when it comes to your water bills.
The only catch is that it isn't available to everyone. To qualify for the freebie, you have to be serviced by one of the water companies in the scheme, which are:
- Dee Valley Water
- Cambridge Water Company
- Severn Trent
- United Utilities
- Yorkshire Water
- Sutton & East Surrey Water
- South Staffs Water
- Portsmouth Water
- Affinity Water
- South West Water
- Bristol Water
- Jersey Water
In the box, which will vary depending on who you get your water from, you'll get things like the aforementioned shower head regulator, a cistern replacement device, a gadget to regulate water flow from your taps, and if you're lucky, you'll be able to get £53 of freebies.
Worth giving it a go. Free money saving devices, for 5 minutes of your time.
Again, the website where you need to visit is Save Water Save Money to claim your free items.
