Growing families, climate change, that prize winning garden, cleaning the car, brushing your teeth, exercising, thirst quenching – we’re using more and more water; a precious resource.
Each of us manages to get through a staggering 4,500 litres of water a month – that’s the equivalent of 56 baths! This means a lot of water needs to be taken from the local environment and treated to get it to your tap. When anyone chooses to use less water, it reduces the amount of water needed and energy required to treat and pump water to homes and businesses.
A leaking toilet is one of the most common causes of unexpected high water use and the resulting high water bills.
They can be hard to see as the water often runs from the toilet cistern into the back of the pan. The sound of a constant trickle is an obvious sign but some leaks are silent and easy to miss.
A leaking toilet could be wasting on average 215 litres of water a day. If you have a water meter and this is left undetected, it could add an extra £200 on to your water bill each year.
You can request a free test kit so you can check your toilet for a leak. The pack contains a special dye tablet to put into your toilet cistern. This easy to use test will show if you have a leak.
We offer a free service where one of our plumbers will call you to see if your toilet is leaking and to help fix it over the phone. They may even be able to order you a free replacement part.
