Water Saving

The Code for Sustainable Homes recommends water usage limitations of 120L per person per day for up to code 3* and 80L per person per day for up to code 6*.

The correct specification of fixtures and fitting is essential to limit water use without affecting lifestyles.

Grey water recycling systems can be fitted in the smallest bathrooms where waste water from baths, showers and basins are used to flush toilets.

Larger systems are available which store water from other uses and rainwater that can be reused in washers, toilets & outside taps.
