Save water while enjoying the sun
We can use up to 40% more water when it's hot, so it's essential to save and re-use it
Reuse your paddling pool water
Don’t forget to keep the water in your paddling pool for another day or reuse it to water your flowerbeds.
Don't wash your car - or use a bucket
Be proud to have a dirty car this summer! Just washing your windscreen cuts your water usage dramatically.
Keep a jug of water in the fridge
Have cool water in the fridge ready to drink, so you don't need to run the tap until it turns cold.
Wash your car with a bucket instead of a hose
If you do have to wash your car, use a bucket rather than a hose. This can save approximately 220 litres of water.
Refill your paddling pool or hot tub less often
Use a Scum Ball in your pool or spa to help prevent the formation of scum lines and reduce foaming. Simply place the Scum Ball into a clean pool or hot tub to absorb more than 40 times its weight in body oils and lotions.
Look after your water in the pool
It’s worth covering up your paddling pool when it’s not in use to prevent water evaporation.
Wash the dog outside instead of a bath
If you own a dog, consider washing them outside instead of the bath during warmer weather. Excess water can be soaked up through the grass or be used to water the plants.
