Every Drop Counts in Barking

Over the spring and summer 2018, Essex & Suffolk Water will be offering customers the chance to have a free water saving visit from a qualified plumber to fit suitable water saving products and discuss tips and hints to help you save water, energy and money in your home at no cost to you with a value of up to £130. Barking sits in one of the driest parts of the UK yet each of us manage to get through a staggering 4,500 litres of water a month which is equivalent to 56 baths of water. This is the chance for customers to reduce their environmental impact while saving water, energy and money.

Meet the team

Essex & Suffolk Water would like to introduce you to some of the people working on helping Barking save water, energy and money. We are working in partnership with Groundworks to help support the community.

Our plumber will arrive at the time of your pre-booked appointment and will introduce themselves showing their identification badge and quoting your personalised password.
