“Conserving water is an important step to helping ensure that demand for water does not exceed supply. It is also an effective way of helping save money on your water bills. Taking showers instead of baths is one way of saving water. Watering your garden with water collected in a water butt, instead of a hosepipe, also helps to conserve water. As the research suggests, significant amounts of water can be wasted through burst pipes and leaks. Regularly checking taps and pipes for leaks is important in conserving water and saving money. If you think you have a leak in your home, contact a team of qualified plumbers immediately.”
