There are many reasons we need to reduce our water usage, from preserving our environment to helping address water draughts, which we are seeing more and more of in recent years. At Hugo Oliver we know there are many steps you can take to save water in your bathroom and have put together a list for you to consider.
Fix leaky taps
Although a dripping tap might not seem like an urgent issue and fixing it could be at the bottom of your to do list, it can actually waste at least 5,500 litres of water a year!*. So our first tip to save water in your bathroom is to address any leaks you have with your bath and basin taps.
Fix leaky toilets
As with taps, leaky toilets waste a lot of water…. between 200 and 400 litres of water per day in fact! And of course, wasted water also means wasted money, so fixing leaks in the bathroom is good for the wallet as well as for the environment.
Turn taps off
When you’re washing your face or brushing your teeth, make sure to turn the tap off when you’re not using them. This will save up to 200 gallons of water per month!
Get a water efficient toilet
A dual flush toilet uses only 4-6 liters of water when flushing, compared to 13 liters for old style systems!* At Hugo Oliver we offer many dual flush toilets and can help you find one to perfectly match your bathroom style.
Switch your showerhead
Switching to an aerated showerhead will reduce the flow but doesn’t compromise on pressure. They do this by mixing air with water to produce a steady spray. We have many options here at Hugo Oliver, so contact our team today to help pick the right one for you.
Check the water temperature
Are you a fan of baths? Remember when running your bath to regularly check the water temperature. This will prevent it filling too hot or cold and needing to add lots of cold or hot water afterwards.
