Tips for your home

A dripping tap can waste up to 10 litres of water a day. That’s almost a bath full of water a week!

Don't forget to fix or replace yours by fitting a WRAS approved tap. And if you need a plumber, make sure they’re registered with WaterSafe.

Keeping your taps clean is really important too. Follow these simple steps to make sure yours stay bacteria free:

  • Regularly use mild disinfectant to clean around the lip of your tap and inside the spout
  • Run water for a short period to clear away disinfectant
  • Ensure food never comes into contact with the tap
  • Don't hang a dishcloth over it
