Thames Water – Water Saving Initiative

From Thames Water:

At Thames Water we’re offering to fit free water and money-saving gadgets in Oxford homes and provide help that could save a family of four as much as £180 a year on bills.

We’re also offering to fix customers’ leaky loos for free. A leaky loo may appear as a small, constant trickle of water at the back of the pan, but can waste five bathtubs of water each day and add £300 to metered customers’ annual bills.

We want to spread the word of this free offer as widely as possible among Oxford residents and groups and would be very grateful if you could forward this message to your mailing lists or networks. If you have any questions or queries about Smarter Home Visits, or would like to discuss other ways we may be able to work in partnership, please do not hesitate to contact me using the details at the bottom of this email.

We have teamed up with environmental charity Groundwork to offer this service, as using less water potentially means there is more in the local rivers to support the environment and river wildlife.

One visit of 30 to 60 minutes from our professional advisors will involve:

Fitting the latest water-saving technology around your home

This includes replacing your old showerhead with a new efficient one, which won’t affect performance. We can also fit devices to taps and toilets to help you save up to £180 per year on metered water and energy bills.

A home water efficiency audit

We’ll check for leaks on taps and toilets, which we can fix free of charge, and provide tailored water and energy-saving advice.

Who can receive this offer?

Any of our supply customers in Oxford.
