Saving Water

This article teaches you more ways to save water, money and how to drink more of it.

Here at Bristol Water we are always trying to encourage our customers to drink more water and waste less of it.

Only 4% of the clean tap water water each person uses everyday is for drinking. The rest goes on washing clothes, washing yourself, flushing the toilet or feeding the garden.

Therefore we like to give away lots of free water saving devices to help you waste less water. And if you are on a meter it will also save you money!

The water industry is interesting as it is one of very few industries in the world that encourages its customers to use less of its product. Water is precious, it takes a lot to get it to your taps. We know water is important to our everyday lives but we want people to waste less.
