Keep cool and save water through ‘BBQ summer’

 

With the mercury set to soar from today people up and down the country will be firing up their BBQs and finding ways to keep cool during the hot weather.

 

Hot weather can significantly affect the demand for water and the amount needed to be put into supply, which also affects groundwater levels.

 

Local water supplier, Affinity Water has stated that whilst restrictions are unlikely this year, it is important that everyone continues to save water and has issued advice to help stay cool in the hot weather whilst saving water.

 

 

  • Keep a jug of water in the fridge to provide cool water rather than running the tap

  • Air your clothes and get another wear out of them, this will save you time and energy on washing too

  • Water the garden in the early morning or evening when it’s cooler and there is less chance of the water evaporating

  • Water pistols are a good way for children to have fun and keep cool

  • Paddling pools can use up to 1,000 litres of water, so to keep kids entertained and cool in hot weather whilst using less water, try paddling pool play dates – inviting their friends to share the same paddling pool. You can also use the water on plants afterwards!

 

Affinity Water’s Customer Relations Director, Amanda Reynolds said: “The feedback we get from many of our customers is that they are passionate about saving water and the environment and would like more information on how to do this. We encourage all of our customers to visit our website at www.affinitywater.co.uk/savewater to find out more and to get FREE water saving devices. Saving water will help save energy and money too!”
