Top tips for
reducing possible issues during winter
The following top tips may help
you reduce the risk of a plumbing disaster and could help you resolve an issue
- Find out where your
stop valve is located on the incoming water supply mains and label it. Check it
occasionally to make sure it is working and you know how it works.
- Whilst you are
looking for your mains water valve find out where the other service valves are
located. Label them and check them from time to time to ensure they are working
- Find the location
of any drain valves on the system. These can be used in an emergency to empty
your water and central heating systems (once
the source of heat has been put out).
- Ensure that the
storage system and exposed pipes are properly insulated.
- In very cold
weather take special care to prevent water pipes becoming frozen. If you
have a storage cistern in the loft it is an excellent idea to leave the loft hatch
open - heat from the house will help to keep the cistern and pipes from

10 tips on saving water at home
- Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth – this can save 6
litres of water per minute.
- Place a cistern displacement device in your toilet cistern
to reduce the volume of water used in each flush. You can get one of these from
your water provider.
- Take a shorter shower. Showers can use anything between 6
and 45 litres per minute.
- Always use full loads in your washing machine and dishwasher
– this cuts out unnecessary washes in between.
- Fix a dripping tap. A dripping tap can waste 15 litres of
water a day, or 5,500 litres of water a year.
- Install a water butt to your drainpipe and use the water collected
to water your plants, clean your car and wash your windows.
- Water your garden with a watering can rather than a
hosepipe. A hosepipe uses 1,000 litres of water an hour. Mulching your plants
(with bark chippings, heavy compost or straw) and watering in the early morning
and late afternoon will reduce evaporation and also save water.
- Fill a jug with tap water and place this in your fridge.
This will mean you do not have to leave the cold tap running for the water to
run cold before you fill your glass.
- Install a water meter. When you're paying your utility
provider for exactly how much water you use, laid out in an itemised bill,
there's an incentive to waste less of the stuff.
- Invest in water-efficient goods when you need to replace
household products. You can now buy water-efficient showerheads, taps, toilets,
washing machines, dishwashers and many other water-saving products.
Why does saving water matter?
Even though water doesn't appear in short supply in the UK,
using less water actually means you are:
Reducing energy use. Cleaning waste water (or 'grey water',
as it's called) is an energy-intensive process; so is heating the hot water
that comes out of your taps.
Saving money. If you're on a water meter, these tips above
could save you a bob or two.
