Despite what feels like never ending rain, water scarcity in the UK is a much bigger problem than people realise.
With half of the 150 litres of tap water each person in the UK uses daily going down the drain (literally), demand for water is at an all time high. Scarcity however is not the only problem with water supply in the UK; with cleaning and sanitising our water contributing to 0.8% of the UK’s annual greenhouse gas emissions. This figure is further pushed up to 5.5% when it comes to heating water for general use!
All of this means one thing; it is vital that we are careful with our water! These 5 gadgets will help you in becoming more water efficient in your home and help us to save our most precious resource.
1)Hippo the Water Saver
Hippo the Water saver is a simple, low cost water saving device that helps to conserve water in your household toilet. Flushing the toilet is one of the biggest water wasting actives in the household, but with Hippo you could save up to 3 litres of water with every flush. This not only helps to save water, but can help to save you money!
EvaDrop is a smart shower device that saves up to 50% of your water. EvaDrop can be installed to any size shower and looks sleek and modern in your bathroom. You can easily adjust your water flow preferences, temperatures and even set timers and alerts. Plus it comes with a handy app that allows you to see exactly how much water you’re saving and lets you set goals to save even more!
If you have a combo boiler, you’re probably wasting water. A typical combo boiler produces about 12 litres of hot water a minute, meaning you can waste up to a toilets cistern worth of water every time you want hot water just by waiting for it to reach the tap. But with CombiSmart this becomes a things of the past, CombiSmart slows the flow of water whilst your toilets heats up to the correct temperature.
BathBuoy can help bring the fun back to your kids bath time and save water at the same time! BathBuoy is an inflatable accessory that takes up bath space, meaning you use around 40% less water! Plus it comes in a fun tropical island design (what more could you want?)
