With hotter days here to stay, every drop of water counts. Thank you for being so mindful of your water use.
With the continued hot weather across the South East, demand for water is exceptionally high. Combined with very little rainfall, this is putting immense pressure on our supply network, and we’d like to say thank you to you, and your community, for helping to keep the taps flowing this summer.

Our daily water demand graph below highlights the millions of additional litres of water we’re having to treat, pump and supply each day. We’re sharing regular updates of water demand across our network on our Water Latest webpage, and lots of ways we can all help save water.

Below are some top water saving tips residents in your community can make.
Taking a shorter shower or ensuring you run a full load in the washing machine might not sound like a big deal, but it’s making all the difference this summer.

💧 Taking a quick shower instead of a bath can save 45 litres of water
💧 Reducing your shower time by just five minutes can save 50 litres of water
💧 Using a watering can instead of a hosepipe or sprinkler could save up to 1,000 litres per hour!

You can help reduce supply and pressure issues even further by only using water for essential use during peak times, when demand is at its highest. During hot weather, this is between 7am and 11am, and 4pm-11pm.
