Tips for the taps
Published 12/01/2010 | 05:00
Don't let the taps run in an attempt to avoid frozen pipes. Only use water where it is necessary and don't use more than is really needed. Avoid taking baths. Use the washing machine only when you have a full load. Take shorter showers and do not use power showers. Tell the council of any place where water is running. Only use dishwashers when full or, better still, not at all. Don't leave the tap running while brushing your teeth. Don't leave the tap running before filling the kettle. Only flush the toilet when it is really necessary.
