A short shower with an efficient showerhead uses less water than a bath, which is usually around 80 litres. But beware since many power showers may actually use more than a bath. Baths and showers are accountable for the highest usage of water consumption in the home, at around 34%.

About 30% of total water used in a home is used to flush the toilet. Remember, this water is the same quality water that’s in our taps. Do you really need to flush?

Leaky loos are one of the most common causes of unexpected high water use for consumers in the UK. A leaky loo wastes between 200 and 400 litres of water per day – that’s a jaw dropping 72,000 to 146,000 litres of water wasted every year – from just one leaking toilet.

Brushing your teeth – Remember to turn off the tap while brushing your teeth – a running tap wastes approximately 6 litres per minute.

Spotted a dripping tap? This could be wasting around 5,500 litres of water a year and could just need the washer replacing. [according to waterwise.co.uk]
