"First of all, it would be interesting to know what your bills are compared to similar properties in the area.
If your bills are very high, have you considered leaks outside the property?
What appliances do you have running and how often for example, to be able to build a picture.
The easiest ways to save, are to shower and not bath.
Reduce water usage in the toilet.
Fit water savers to taps.
Many water companies actually offer water-saving devices for free."

"I would advise a water saving device in your toilet cistern and possibly on your shower heads."

"See about having a water meter fitted in most cases it’s like a pay as you use system also look at having a dual flush system for your toilet you’ll use less water when flushing and then just other little things like being more aware of how you're using your water."

"Try only having the radiators on that need to be on at the time you can do this on the TRV on the radiator.
Also, the most amount of wasted water in the household from a survey done in 2020 was overfilling the kettle when using it."

"Add a water saver to your toilet flush, it basically takes up space and makes each flush have less water, in the old day's people used to use a brick in the cistern to do the same thing lol.
Add a flow reducer to your tap outlets. Basically screws on and it makes the holes smaller. Change your shower head to a water-saving one. But most importantly fix any small leaks, I did a quick study to find out how much water is wasted through small leaks and it is shocking how little by little leaks waste so much.
You can get most of this free from your waterboard. Email them, they have staff dedicated to getting people to use this stuff."
