How much water is wasted at home?

You may be surprised how much water is wasted in your home. Here are some ways to reduce unnecessary losses:

  • Make sure that the toilet cistern and taps are in proper working order.
  • Choose the right flushing option. Many modern toilets have a dual flush system. A full flush for solid waste uses about 6 litres of water, while a smaller flush uses just 3 litres. Older toilets use up to 15 litres of water each flush.
  • Don’t throw rubbish down the toilet as it can block the drains.
