The Why.

We press the flush 4600 times per year …

More

In the UK, we flush away enough water to fill up 300,000 Olympic-Sized Swimming Pools (740 billion litres) every year. On average, that flush button/handle is pressed 4600 times a year per house ... flush, flush, flush.

42% of our homes were made before water fitting regulations were put in place, meaning they could be housing a 'Bog Standard' Loo that flushes more than 13 litres every flush, instead of the 6 litre flushes that are required these days. Flush, Flush, Flush.

That's a whole lot of water wasted. In fact, 7000 litres per person per year, if you're on a meter, there's about £80 per year to be saved.

There a couple of options here:

• If you have an old (and large) cistern, you can use a water displacement device which would reduce each flush by a couple of litres. Some water companies will offer these for free. Or, if you can afford to install a new water efficient toilet, this could save 7000 litres per person per year

• If you already have a Dual Flush ... only use the full force of the big flush when the occasion calls for it (you know what we mean!)
