Save Water in the Bathroom

Read the video transcript

Brushing teeth


Leaving the tap running while you brush your teeth wastes a surprising amount of water. Only turn the tap on when you want to rinse, or use a glass of water for rinsing instead.

Around 30% of water in an average household is used to flush the toilet. If your toilet has a large or old cistern, fit it with a water-saving device.

A bath uses almost 3 times the water of a shower.  Take a shower instead of a bath - it saves water, money and time. By fitting a low-flow showerhead (not suitable for electric showers) you can save even more water - and they get you just as wet and clean as

an ordinary shower does!

Watch out for power-showers, they use as much water as a bath.
