On Wednesday 5 April, our MD Jacob Tompkins spoke to ITV Meridian's Charlotte Wilkins about how to save water in the home, and showed her some simple things householders can do to cut down on their water bills.
Which activities are most water intensive?
The pie chart below shows the percentage of water used in each water-using area of your home.
|Baths and Taps||21%||Outdoor||7%|
Figures are taken from:
- Water companies
- WRC (formally the Water Research Centre)
- UK Water Industry Research (UKWIR)
NB: The split within personal washing between baths & taps and showers is still being refined. Outdoor water use may vary from region to region.
