What’s a water saving home visit?

A Southern Water and Aqualogic joint-branded van.

We’ll book a convenient time for one of our engineers to visit your home. In under two hours, they’ll explain how simple, everyday changes could help you save water, save energy – and, in turn, save money on your bills.

We’ll also fit up to £100 worth of free water-saving devices in your kitchen, bathroom and toilet – such as tap inserts, water-efficient showerheads and dual-flush converters.

Water saving home visits

Following Government guidelines with social distancing and PPE, we offer FREE home visits to fit water saving devices in your home and talk about your water usage so you can reduce your use and save money on your water bills.

 

Helping you save

During the home visit an engineer will fit a variety of free water saving devices – worth over £100 – such as tap inserts, water efficient showerheads, toilet dual flush converters, check for leaky loos and talk to you about your water usage.

 

How will you know it’s us?

The visits are carried out by our partner RPS Environmental Management Ltd with its sub-contractor Aqualogic.  All engineers have ID cards that show these companies’ logos alongside Southern Water’s own. Please ask to see ID before allowing anyone into your property.

 

Who can request a visit?

To book you must have both water and waste services provided by Southern Water and have a water meter.  If that sounds like you, please complete the home visit request using the form below.

Why should I save water?

Every year, our region is home to more people using the same amount of water.

If we keep using it at our current rate, demand for water will overtake the amount we’re able to supply – and there’s only so much we can take from our environment.

To conserve this precious resource, we’ve committed to reduce leakage and we’re looking at new ways to reuse water. But we need your help too.

We want to help our customers reduce how much water they use to 100 litres per person, per day by 2040 – we call this Target 100. We’re committed to helping you get there, while we work hard to reduce leakage by 40% in the same timeframe. 

Will you help us hit Target 100? Start now by booking your water saving home visit.
