Did you know?• if everyone in the North West ran a tap for one minute every day it would be enough in a year to fill a major reservoir.
How to save water in your home:• check for leaks & faulty washers
• take showers instead of baths
• wait until you have a full load before using your washing machine - buy one which has half-load capacity or low water usage
• refrigerate drinking water to save running the tap waiting for cold water
• collect rainwater for watering the garden/washing the car - or bike
• water your garden in the evenings to avoid evaporation
• use cooking water as stock
• recycle more - use washing up/bath water to flush the toilet or to water the soil around non food plants
• low flow shower heads fill spray taps, faucet aerators, and dual flush toilets all help to conserve water
• write to your local water company asking how much water it loses in its pipes through leakage and what it is doing about it
Save-a-flushFlushing the loo takes up one third of the water we use every day. Fitting a Save-a-flush device in your cistern saves around one litre of water every time you flush. Why not send for your free Save-a-flush device today?
We can supply "free" save-a-flush(es) in any quantity - just send a book of four second-class stamps for EACH one to cover P&P and admin and a note of your address to:
Wirral Environmental Network
Wallasey, CH44 8ER.
Please note that if you live in a house or flat built after 2000, we advise you not to fit the Save-a-flush in your toilet cistern. Toilets fitted after 2000 tend to have a low-level flush, using only six litres of water, which is already water efficient. The toilet may not flush properly if a Save-a-flush is fitted in these toilets.
