Water Conservation
Saving our most precious resource

There is no resource more precious than water. It is perhaps the most misunderstood, misallocated, misused and wasted asset we have. As we abuse this dwindling resource, we risk our safe drinking water, natural ecosystems and our ability to produce food. Treating, pumping and heating water is also a major contributor to the UK's greenhouse gas emissions, with water heating alone accounting for one fifth.

Most of the water we consume is used for washing, showering and flushing toilets. Typically around 150 litres per day per person. While Government aim to reduce this by 20 litres, far greater savings are possible thanks to simple, cost effective water saving devices.

Solarcrest easy to retrofit products can halve the amount of water you use without affecting performance. With capital repayment measured in hours rather than years, they're great for your pocket as well as the planet.

water consumption and carbon footprintWater consumption & your carbon footprint

  • The average person uses 150 litres of water per day.
  • By 2020, with the increased population and housing, the demand for water is set to increase by 5%, thats an extra 800 million litres of water per day.
  • A typical family uses 500 litres of water per day, that equates to 1.5 tonnes of carbon per year for the average home.
  • We are using 50% more water per person than 50 years ago, partly because of power showers and modern appliances.
  • 35 million tonnes of greenhouse gases are produced a year from water treatment, heating and reheating.
