Home visits: how one family's saving water and money

Home visit


We’re offering free water saving visits, so that customers can find out more about water saving in their own home. Here’s how a water saving visit helped a young family in Brighton to save water.

Helping a young family in Brighton to save water

Following a free water saving visit, the family are saving £35 a year. Our engineers installed new shower regulators and a water butt in the garden to help get them started on their mission to save water. 

They also found out about some tips to save water while they go about their everyday lives. One tip was to keep a jug of cold water in the fridge - to avoid leaving the tap running until the water’s cold every time you want a drink of water. Another was to wait for a full load before using the washing machine.

What a water saving visit can do
The family has seen a reduction in water usage. They managed to make saving water into something they do now as part of their everyday lives. These are habits that the young children will carry with them as they grow up. Our free water saving home visits are part of our Target 100 campaign, with the aim of helping customers reduce their average daily water usage to 100 litres per person each day.

How a water saving visit works
An engineer makes the visit and can fit free water saving devices, as well as giving advice about how to save water. The engineer may be able to put shower regulators on shower heads, adjust the flow of water from your taps or even fit a water butt so that you can collect rainwater for the garden. You can book your water saving visit on our website.

Saving water helps the environment – and reduces your bills
As well as saving you money, saving water at home helps the environment around us. Using less water in your property means we don’t need to take so much from our water sources, such as rivers and reservoirs, before treating it for you to use. These water sources are where wildlife live, and they depend on the water there to survive. The more water we can leave in the environment, the more these wildlife habitats and the biodiversity within them can thrive.
