Save Money on your Water Bills | Maintain Drains

Save money on water bills 2022

With the news that the average household electricity and water bill is set to rise in the UK this year, we look at ways to save money on your water bills. Unlike gas and electricity companies, you can only be supplied by your regional water company. So you can’t switch suppliers, but there are ways to reduce your bills. This article is set out to give you some simple tips on how you could reduce your water consumption and reduce costs. You may be shocked at how much money you can save on your water bill by making these simple changes.

1. Don’t Waste Water

There are lots of ways not to waste water but simple changes in your own habits can result in helping to save money on your water bill. Take a quick shower instead of a bath, turn the tap off when you are brushing your teeth, always use full loads in your washing machine and dishwasher, only boil the kettle with the water that you need. These are simple changes and ones that we hear about a lot. But do you do them? For more helpful advice on simple tips, visit the Energy Saving Trust website.

2. Have you got a water leak?

Leaks can happen and sometimes you don’t even notice them. A burst pipe could result in extensive damage but also an increase in your water bill. If you do notice a leak or a bust pipe, then it is a good idea to turn off the water supply and get the leak fixed. Leaks could also come from your household appliances or radiators so make sure if you spot a puddle of water, you investigate it and get it fixed as quickly as possible.

3. Checkups and Maintenance

A lot of people don’t realise that your normal household appliances such as sinks and toilets, which you use on a daily basis, might be using more water than they should be. Leaking pipes or faults could be the cause of a rising water bill. At Maintain Drains, we recommend that you always do checkups and maintenance to ensure that your water consumption is low. This could be occasional checks – but could save you in the long run!

4. Replace old Appliances

You should keep in mind that a lot of wasted water could be saved by changing to modern appliances. Replacing your old appliances with water-efficient products could save you money on your water bills. Modern toilets, for example, reduce water consumption and can also offer more sustainable solutions such as rainwater or sink water. If you are looking into investing in a product that uses less water, look at the energy efficiency label to help guide your purchase.

5. Invest in Water Saving Devices for your Home

As a final point to consider for your home and to help save money on your water bills, you could consider investing in water-saving devices for your home. There is a range of different products to look at such as water-efficient showerheads, leaky loo detection strips, cistern bags, and tap aerators.

We hope you have found these tips useful.

How can I save money on my water bill by fixing leaks?

Saving money on your water bill can be as simple as fixing leaks around your home. A dripping tap or a leaking toilet can waste a lot of water, leading to higher bills. At Maintain Drains, we offer quick and efficient leak detection and repair services to help you reduce your water usage and save money.

How much should my water bill be per month, and what affects it?

The amount you should expect to pay on your water bill each month can vary based on several factors including the size of your household, the amount of water you use, and whether you have any leaks in your plumbing system. On average, a typical family home might expect water bills to range from £30 to £50 per month.

What are the best ways to detect plumbing issues before they escalate?

Detecting plumbing issues early can save you from hefty repair bills and severe water damage. Watch for signs like reduced water pressure, unusual noises from pipes, or damp patches on walls or floors.
