Saving water isn't only for times of drought; we cannot afford to waste this precious resource at any time. To help save water many companies in the UK offer free devices to be placed in your toilet cistern, meaning that you use less water every time you flush.

If you local water company does not offer such a device it is possible to put a brick or large pebble in your cistern to acheive the same effect. Be careful that anything which you put in the cistern does not affect its working.

  • Affinity Water customers can request a free Hippo bag water saver, watersaving shower heads, water widgets, tap aerators and a rather fun bath brick for the kids (or your!) bath.
