Remember when your water bill was for a set amount? No matter how conscious you were about saving water, you still had that same bill to meet every month. Now, thankfully, things have changed. Since more households are now on water meters, we have far more control over the amount we spend.
If you live alone, or you are part of a couple, chances are your bill may already have gone down. If you have a large family, it may have gone the other way. But the good news is you can still save money every month if you pay close attention to how you use your water.
We’ve put together some tips here to get you started. There are plenty more things you can do though, so make sure you explore all the options.
Don’t leave taps running if you don’t need to
Filling a sink with water is one thing, but turn the tap off when you’re brushing your teeth. Getting into this habit can save a lot of water daily, let alone over a month or the whole year.
Stay alert for leaks
Is your toilet cistern leaking? Do you have a leaky tap? Get these fixed as soon as they start to leak, otherwise the water loss will add up and you’ll pay more for your water supplies.
