Flushing your loo accounts for about 30% of the water used in your home.
You can reduce the amount of water your home uses for toilet flushing by using a water-saving device in your toilet cistern.
The Save-a-Flush is a harmless bag of crystals, which when placed in your toilet cistern will expand and save 1 litre of water every time you flush. This is just one simple but effective step that we can all take to use water wisely that doesn't need a major lifestyle change.

Using your Save-a-Flush
Instructions for use are printed on the Save-a-Flush.
Please note: the Save-a-Flush is suited to toilet cisterns of a 6.5 litre capacity and above. It is not suitable for use in slimline cisterns, dual-flush cisterns or cisterns with a capacity of 6 litres or less (usually installed since 1999) as these are already water efficient, you should use the short flush option where possible.
Disposing your Save-a-Flush
If you need to dispose of your Save-a-Flush please put it carefully in your household rubbish, out of the reach of children and animals.
If, after inserting your Save-a-Flush, you find your toilet is not flushing properly then please remove the Save-a-Flush from your toilet cistern and dispose of it as advised above.
