The Every Drop Counts team will be working in Washington over the summer, signing up customers to receive a free visit, where a qualified technician will look at the uses of water in the home and advise on improvements that can be made to help save water. They will also check and fix leaking taps and toilets, where possible.

People who sign up can receive water saving products from water butts to more efficient shower heads, worth up to £130, free.
