YORKSHIRE Water customers have been urged to save money and litres of water by using a host of free gadgets.

The firm's customers will be able to apply for water-saving kits, to aid their bills and water consumption.

The devices up for grabs include tap inserts, where customers could save as much as 7,000 litres a year, around £20.

Flushsavers, where people pop the bag into your toilet cistern and save 1.2 litres every time they flush the toilet, potentially 5,000 litres a year on average.

Another free device is the four-minute shower timer, where spending just a minute less in the shower each day could save £100 a year in water bills.

Fitting a ShowerSave device between your water outlet and shower hose can save around £42 a year.

To order a free Water Saving Pack, customers can just need to visit yorkshirewater.com/pack.

Apart from the savings made, you only need about 3-4 minutes to get pretty clean. Any more than that and you're just being irresponsible (if money's a problem).

I can't afford to bathe as often as I'd like. I tend to have a bath about once every week or two. And only flush the loo once per day. But that's the least of my problems at the moment. Got no money and no food and one week to go to next JSA.

Now there's a surprise. My comment got a negative vote. Whoever is responsible, I hope you're proud of yourself. Here I am, an Englishman who has worked, paid in, and who's father and grandfather worked all their lives, and fought in wars for this dump of a country, and I am starving. All you can do is vote me down. Pathetic selfish Right-wing scumbags.

And yet it appears you have a Internet connection or at least 3g.

If you can't afford to eat sort your priorities out
