Every Drop Counts

Summer 2019 water saving campaign

Water is our most precious resources yet we tend to take it for granted. But to avoid future water shortages we need a major culture shift in how we value water. We can all do our bit to save water. If we all save a little, we all save a lot. Every drop really does count. 


Making Every Drop Count in Tandridge

We will be coming to Oxted and surrounding areas this summer – from free home audits and water-saving devices to fixing customers’ leaky pipes and toilets, there will be plenty of advice on offer and activities to get involved in!

If you would like to take advantage of a free 45-minute home visit from our partner SES Home Services please call 0330 333 9801. During this home visit we will:

- Check all water-using fittings and their flow rates

- Provide and fit suitable water efficiency devices free of charge

- Find and fix simple leaks to toilets, taps and fittings in the home

- Arrange repairs of leaks on underground supply pipes for free

- Leave you with a tailored water and energy efficient report

Don't delay, call today on 0330 333 9801


Community fund for non-profit organisations​

As a small local company deeply embedded in the communities weserve, we are not seen as just a supplier of water and we don’t want to just deliver great service for customers – we want to play an active part in improving the areas we are privileged to serve. 

That's why we have created a community fund to support non-profit organisations in the Tandridge area who are raising money for environmental projects. You can apply for a grant via our online form, or you can print it out and send it to: Every Drop Counts team, SES Water, Redhill, Surrey, RH1 1LJ.

Applications must be submitted by 31 March 2020


What we've done and where we've been!

 

Tandridge Leisure Centre – Wednesday 30 October 

We set up for the afternoon at Tandridge Leisure Centre, in Oxted, to talk to customers about water efficiency. We handed out free shower timers, swell gels for potted plants, leaky loo strips and even swim floats just for fun! We spoke about different ways to save water in the home and then encouraged swimmers to make a pledge about how they would personally cut down on the water they use – like spend less time in the shower, take shallower baths, turn the tap off when brushing their teeth and to fix dripping taps. We also carried out a water efficiency audit to see how the Leisure Centre could make savings too, which sits very nicely with an energy efficiency case study they are running.  


Staff briefing at Tandridge District Council – 10 September 2019

We had a great opportunity to talk to customer facing members of staff at Tandridge District Council to arm them with valuable information about saving water which they could then pass on to Tandridge residents.  


Smart devices - September to November 2019

We’ve installed 30 new smart devices in our customers’ homes – they will be testing new devices to help us decide if it is worth investing more into this new technology. During the trial customers will be able to make informed decisions about their water usage and hopefully adapt the way they use water on a daily basis to reduce the amount they use and potentially save money.    


Take a look at the adverts we ran in August to help spread our water saving message!

Godstone Farm - Tuesday 13 August to Friday 16 August​ 2019

We helped Godstone Farm celebrate their 40th birthday by attending their 'Festival on the Farm'! Festival goers were able to take part in fun activities, learn about leak detection and how to save water in the home.

 


Family Fun Day at Bough Beech reservoir on Thursday 22 August 2019

We invited families to our Bough Beech Water Treatment Works to learn about the wonderful world of water! The fun day included a tour the works, climbing the dam and to see just how water is treated.
