How to Save Water and Save Money on Your Water Bill

There are a number of different ways to save money and save water all while reducing your water bill.

The demand for water has always been high, however, the bills are steadily increasing. We have put together a number of different ways to save money and save water all while working towards reducing your water bill.

 

Water Saving Shower Heads

It’s a well known fact that taking showers regularly and saving the bath for a well-deserved treat reduces water usage greatly, but how do you make the shower more water efficient whilst saving money? Simply install an air injected showerhead.

An air injected shower head injects air bubbles into the water stream. This gives the water the  same splash effect and performance as a non-air injected shower but uses up to 50% less water! Remember air is still free, therefore, you will see a reduction in your water bill!

Vado currently house a nice selection of air injected shower heads all with stunning designs, and either priced similarly to normal shower heads or even less - so go and take a look to begin reducing your water bill now!

Save Money and Water With a Non-Concussive Basin Tap

You may regard a dripping tap as slightly annoying, but in actual fact it is a financial burden. The average dripping tap wastes 5,500 litres of water per year — that’s nearly 70 baths! Fixing or replacing a dripping tap can save you around £55 per year, so it is a good idea to invest in a high quality tap.

The great thing about non-concussive taps is they deliver a timed flow of water which automatically shuts off after a certain amount of water has been released, hence, saving a dramatic amount of water. They cannot be accidentally left running which makes them ideal for people in family orientated homes, as well as homes that are trying to reduce and save money on their water bills and become more energy efficient.

Save Water With a Flow Regulator

One of the most water efficient and money saving fittings you can fix in your bathroom is a flow regulator and you don’t need to be a plumber to fit one to your tap!

A flow regulator can reduce water usage through your tap by up to 50%!

By regulating the flow you will still get excellent flow rates at a good pressure, just with less water coming through. Furthermore the flow regulator provides softer water which reduces wasteful splashing.

Save Your Flush by Flushing Less

In the UK one third of household water is flushed down the toilet. Dual flush toilets are a great way to regulate the amount of water you use. With its supreme efficiency; a dual flush toilet can save up to 27,000 litres of water a year which will have a monetary saving of around £270!

We can all get a bit carried away when flushing items down the toilet; Thames Water found half a Mini Cooper in a London sewer! Of course most of us would think twice before flushing car parts down the toilet but there are items in the bathrooms that many of us unnecessarily flush away. Flushing items such as make up wipes, sanitary products and cotton buds down the loo often require multiple flushes. With the average water usage per flush of a high efficiency toilet being 5 litres, placing such items in the bin will save you money on your water bill.
