Help to keep the water flowing this summer
Hosepipes and sprinklers use an incredible amount of water – more water in one hour than a family of four will use in a day – and the ban will help to ensure that we have enough water to go round for essentials such as drinking, washing and cooking.
It would really help if you could avoid using hosepipes and sprinklers at this time as it makes a huge difference in the amount of water being used across the North West. Please use a watering can instead or, even better, reuse any water from the home such as water from washing up bowls or bath water.

If you run a business, we’d really appreciate your support too. If you have employees, encourage them to suggest ways to save water in the workplace and fix any leaks or bursts as soon as possible. Remember, reducing your overall usage will also help to reduce your water bills too.

Thanks for your support, together we can keep the North West flowing this summer.
