Have you ever really wondered how much water (& money) you can save off your water bill with every flush you make? Probably not, but here at Claire & Ryan’s home they save approximately 10 pints of water every time they flush their DIY solar powered toilet!!

If they use their toilet say 6 times a day, that is a whopping 60 pints of water a day, or 21,900 pints of water saved a year… Imagine that reduction on your water bill.

They are passionate about saving water and energy and have all manner of low tech, low spend solutions in their home and as a result are a leading example of how easy it is to save this precious commodity and save themselves money at the same time.

Both their front & rear gardens showcase effortless ways to collect rainwater, ensuring it doesn’t add to surface water flooding and waters their plants at the same time. 

Not only can Claire & Ryan share about water solutions, they are part of a hedgehog corridor, provide a frog habitat, and are part of a growing number of people who have switched their energy supply to a 100% renewable supplier that is cheaper than the larger energy companies.

If you are wanting to be more water and energy conscious and learn about creating a rain water garden, have kids that love wildlife or you want to know more about growing your own fruit trees this home is well worth a visit!
