Welcome to our water saving section of our site. Here you will find ingenious ways to save water both in the home and outside in the garden.
A standard toilet cistern pushes 9-11 litres of water down the toilet pan with every flush. Over the period of a year, that adds up to around 50,000 litres for the average household. Yet the majority of toilet trips probably only require 50-60% of that amount of water for a clean flush.
The quickest and cheapest way to reduce the amount of water used by your toilet is to fill out some of the space in your toilet cistern with a suitable object.
House bricks wrapped in plastic (bubble-wrap or even just a carrier bag) to protect the brick from crumbling or moulding are an ideal solution to this. Alternatively, a large margarine tub, water bottle or similar container filled with water and sealed will work just as well.
Proper products, called Cistern Displacement Devices or Water Hippos, can also be purchased that have the same effect while more advanced products such as the Interflush fitting can offer even bigger water savings.
Nestlé Waters Powwow is a member of the UK British Water Cooler Association (BWCA) and also the European Point-of-use Drinking Water Association (EPDWA). Membership of both organisations requires us to conform to the highest standards of local and European quality and hygiene standards.
Each of our bottling centres is subject to annual inspections to ensure they meet local and European standards for bottled water. We currently hold 2 Gold Awards as a result of the excellent results from the latest independent inspections.
Our in-house team of microbiologists perform rigorous testing on a daily basis to ensure POWWOW water always reaches you in perfect condition.

The Hampshire Water Partnership was formed in 2001 and is composed of a wide range of organisations who are stakeholders in water in Hampshire.
Its main aim is to ensure the long term future of Hampshire’s rivers, aquifers and wetlands for people and wildlife. see www.hampshirewaterfestival.co.uk. The Hampshire Water Partnership was established in 1999 to foster increased understanding and knowledge-sharing about Hampshire’s water environments and the issues facing rivers, wetlands and aquifers.
It comprises private, public and voluntary bodies who have a role or interest in the sustainable management of this unique water environment. The Partnership has no executive powers, but provides a forum for closer working relationships, information dissemination, and discussion on topical issues.
