Around 10,000 Northumbrian Water customers in Ashington will be offered a completely free water saving visit from a qualified technician. The visits include the installation of a number of free water saving products, and is worth up to £130.
Alongside the free water saving home visits, Northumbrian Water will be running a number of events and initiatives with the local community in Ashington to spread the Every Drop Counts message. This includes local school visits from the Super Splash Heroes - an interactive play and workshop which helps children learn the importance of saving water. There will also be a number of community outreach and customer engagement events.
Tim Wagstaff, Water Efficiency Manager for Northumbrian Water said: "We are very passionate about working with our customers to help use water wisely. We are really proud of our long history of engaging with hundreds of thousands of our customers to help them save water, which is great for them in both helping save money on their utility bills and in protecting our environment. Our award-winning Every Drop Counts campaign is a fantastic way for customers to help ensure that our precious water resources are used as wisely as possible."
In 2018 Every Drop Counts took place in Washington, where over 2,300 home visits took place, saving approximately 51,000 litres of water a day, and saving each customer approximately £20 off their annual water and sewerage bill.
Ashington residents will be receiving details in the post or via email inviting them to register for a free water saving visit, however they can book now by visiting www.nwl.co.uk/everydropcounts, phoning 0800 953 0130 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Customers will be offered appointments at a time that is convenient for them. A qualified technician will check how water efficient your property is, and then tailor their water saving advice based on each individual household. This will include offering a wide range of free products designed to save water in the home.
The launch of Every Drop Counts marks the start of a year of activity from Northumbrian Water in Ashington that will help customers save money, water, time and energy. As well as the water saving visits, customers will be offered help and advice on how to prevent blockages, report leaks, take advantage of priority services and get help with their bill if they need it.
