The average Thames Water household bill is around £354 a year. If companies such as Thames Water succeed some of us could see an increase of 8% in our water bills by 2014.
So, how can we conserve our water?
There are simple ways you can save money on your water bill by adopting all or even some of the following:

 

1. Shower instead of bathing and you’ll use about half the amount of water according to OFWAT
2. Turn off your tap when brushing teeth
3. Use any left over water (detergent free) to water household plants
4. Use cooking water (from pasta, vegetable) in a stew, gravy, soup (adds to the taste as well as saves water)
5. Don’t over fill your kettle (saves on energy bills as well here) just use enough water for your needs
6. Use a water butt in the garden to collect rainwater for watering the garden
7. Always use a full load in your washing machine or dishwasher – half loads waste water and energy
8. Use a bucket to clean your car not the garden hose as you will use less water and still clean the car perfectly well
9. Don’t leave the tap running when washing vegetables – fill a bowl up with cold water and use this
10. Always get that annoying dripping tap or pipe fixed as soon as possible as this drip, drip, drip cannot be underestimated
