Water Saving

When one third of our water usage is in baths, showers and basins, and almost as much again is used to flush toilets, there is a clear opportunity to reuse filtered 'grey' bathwater to fill toilet cisterns.

Rainwater collection is another obvious available saving, using rain from rooftops or 'welling' in a high water table. Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) aim to control pollution caused by run-off, which washes pollutants into sensitive fresh water sources. In effect, concreted urban areas restrict the chance for rain to soak away naturally. Legislation changes have affected the way open ground can now be covered. Jewson supplies materials which allow natural drainage on hardstanding areas.
