Saving Money (and Your Drains!) with TWC

Saving money and your drains

When we talk about saving in the context of drain care, we are often talking about environmental impacts, but it is also possible to save money by following best practices with your drains. In this blog, the TWC Drain Care team breaks down some handy hints and tips, helping you to keep both your budget and your drains in optimal condition.

Reduce Your Water Usage

Not only is it good for the environment, but saving water can lower your energy bills and help you to avoid paying unnecessarily. Try to take shorter showers wherever possible, and make sure taps are turned off whenever not in use (especially when you are brushing your teeth). Another handy tip is that running one full dishwasher a day is typically cheaper than washing up by hand, so putting dirty dishes into the washer after each meal and running it once in the evenings may help to lower your bills.

Small Adjustments, Big Impacts

There are plenty of small adjustments that you can make to your daily water usage that will have minimal impact on your experience, but can add up to huge savings over a year. Firstly, ensure that none of your taps are dripping – around 460 million litres of water are lost through dripping taps in the UK annually, according to research! You can also lower your boiler temperature by around 5 degrees, which usually will not impact your water temperature a noticeable amount, but can reduce your energy usage considerably. Finally, make sure that you run your washing machine at a lower temperature, and only when you have a full load.

Draincare and Maintenance

If your drains are leaking, not only can this cause structural or environmental damage, but it can lead to a great deal of (expensive) water wastage. When you suspect a problem, calling out the experts can help to fix the issue in a competent and efficient manner, ensuring that you can preserve money, time, and peace of mind.
