Water use

Water is a valuable and limited resource and not to be wasted.

• Use a rainwater butt with an overflow linked to a soakaway (not to combined surfacewater/foulwater drains), rainwater is better for plants as it’s chlorine free.

• Minimise use of external hard surfaces due to potential problems with rainwater run off/flooding risk, habitat loss and a visually bleak appearance.

• Save water, toilets account for up to 35% of water use. By fitting a low flush or eco-flush, a device with high and low settings, you could reduce (drinking quality) water used to flush the toilet by up to 75%.
