Money saving in the home – save on your water

Helping you save money on your water bills with the ingenious ‘Save a Flush’, from United Utilities.

Autumn is well and truly upon us, and the drop in temperature could mean you end up with higher household bills. One area of household bills which you can save on is water, read on to find out how!

Every day, each of us uses 150 litres on average – with water bills eating into a large chunk of the household spending- every drop counts. In these tough economic climates with increasing debts and increasing bills, it is time to stop the leaking taps, leaking pounds.

So what is the real cost of ‘spending a penny’?

With toilet flushing counting for 30% of water used in a household, it really is money down the pan. We however, have a solution which could help you save water and save money – the ‘Save a Flush’.

We’ve teamed up with United Utilities to offer ClearDebt and Abacus clients a Save a Flush pack free of charge. These Save a Flush packs come with installation instructions and other tips for saving water in the home. Once installed, the ‘Save a Flush’ pack saves around one litre per flush, which long term can save you money on your water bill if using a water meter in your home.

How does Save a Flush work?

All you have to do is place the Save a Flush pack in the cistern of your toilet. The Save a Flush contains super absorbent polymer and silica sand, which absorbs water when it is placed in the toilet cistern. The Save a Flush will last for many years, all the while quietly saving the environment and potentially saving you money.

It is an easy to install, cost effective solution.

    Use a house hold brick instead.

    • Brick can crumble/moulder and might damage valve – wrap in plastic – or use a plastic screw top bottle (maybe a milk bottle) filled with water.

      Neither will work in modern thin cisterns though – unlike save-a-flush

    When making a cuppa, just boil enough water for your needs, dont fill the kettle up if you’re only making 1 or 2 cups.

    Have a shower instead of a bath

  • Tonyparxmagic

    use a little less shower gel / shampoo than you normally use ,when the bottles are almost empty, turn upside down and put the dregs of your bottles into a hand dispenser for washing your hands.
