Saving water is an important issue in London and it can easily be done by applying certain water saving tips in the bathroom. Our plumbers in London explain to you how to do this easily and with no great costs.

1. Acquire a water saving toilet in London

The toilet is an important water waster in any household. That is because it accounts for more than a quarter of the total water use in a home. 
Older homes which have their original toilets set up before 1994 utilize 3.5 gallons (13.24 liters) of water or even more per each flush.
Now, there are modern toilets which utilize 1.6 gallons (6.05 liters) or even less, creating important savings of water.
There are certain toilet types which do even more, conferring two separate flushing options for solid and liquid waste, saving even more water.
 Our plumber in London can help you choose and set up a water saving toilet in your bathroom, making sure that the environment, as well as your bills, are protected.

2. Things to do in the shower

In order to have a water efficient bathroom, there are certain things which can be done in the shower, such as:
Spend less time showering. In case you have the tendency to lose track of time, you can turn up the radio and time yourself by how many songs play while you are showering. The idea is to reduce the shower time to only one song;
Have our plumbers in London set up a low-flow showerhead. Although it is more costly, it will save you a lot in the long term;
Turn off the water while you are washing. This can save a lot of water in the long run. 

3. Shut off the faucets in London

Our London plumbing professionals recommend you to make sure, while you are brushing your teeth or washing your hands, that you turn off the faucet. 
It is important to remember that water is an expensive and crucial commodity which should not be wasted easily in London.
