With the cost of household bills on the rise, more and more people are keen to find ways to cut their home expenses. And as Thames Water announced last month that 14 million customers’ water bills would be hiked up by £29, it was time for the spotlight to shine on water bills and how to reduce them.

Water-efficient showerheads

When the cost of water is unavoidably high, there’s one foolproof way to reduce your bill – use less. The less water you use, the less you’ll have to pay for; so look for ways to reduce your water usage.

While it’s inevitable that you’ll probably have to use a lot of water, specialist shower retailer The Shower Doctor advises investing in a water-efficient showerhead to reduce your water consumption on a daily basis. The beauty of aerated, water-friendly showerheads is that they use special technology to make the water flow feel more powerful than it actually is – giving you an easy way to save energy and money.

Most effective on power and mixer showers with a high flow rate, the Energy Saving Trust estimates that a four-person family could annually save £90 off their water bills and £75 off their gas bills by switching to a water-efficient showerhead. That’s a grand total of £165 –an investment that will quickly pay for itself.

Other ways to save water

Did you also knowthat you can not only get water-efficient showerheads, but water-efficient toilets? It’s estimated that in the UK we use two billion litres of water every year just flushing the toilet.

That’s a lot of water,and if your toilet employs a single flush system, you could be using up to 13 litres of water per flush. But by changing your single flush system to a dual flush system, you could use just 4 to 6 litres of water per flush – that’s up to 9 litres of water less per flush.

It’s also a good idea to invest in water-efficient appliances. When buying a washing machine or a dishwasher, look for one with a high water-efficiency rating. The best washing machines use less than 7.5 kg of water per kilogram of washing, helping you save water, energy and money.
