With the extremity of the weather across the UK it’s become harder to predict the weekly forecast and good water usage advice is always welcome. Early in 2012, many areas were suffering from low water reserves and were prepared for a hosepipe ban. This was not the case. Shortly after this period, there was a dramatic increase in rainfall which in some areas, lead to flooding. This year we were surprised by a shock heatwave, which couldn’t be complained about although, this erratic weather is having a negative effect on households, especially those on water metres.
