South West Water (SWW) has launched its water efficiency campaign, #GetIntoWater – play your part, be water smart.

Come rain or shine, saving water makes sense. And, along with protecting the environment, for customers of SWW it can help them save money off their water bill.

According to SWW, the average person in our region uses 140 litres of water in a day. The water company want to reduce that to 128.7 litres by the end of 2025. Small changes in water use can make a big difference when multiplied by the 1.7 million people they serve.  

Gardening also accounts for much of the additional water demand during hot weather. A water butt is one of the easiest ways to collect and save a large amount of rainwater to use later in the summer months. On average one water butt holds the same amount of water as 25 watering cans, and most plants prefer rainwater over tap water. 

And to help save water, SWW has given us five free water butts to give away.
