Also works with Severn Trent Water. Have ordered some of the products. Many thanks. Heat added.
Probably be a brick to put in the cistern.

You should've got a thermostatic power shower like ours....keeps the water temp. to within 1°C if someone flushes the loo or turns on the washing machine or tap Pointless fitting one of these devices to a power shower or your restricting the flow so it's no longer a powerful shower
But it must ccost you a fortune to chisel off the dirt.
Unless you've set your boiler to give out hot water at the temperature you'd like to shower in and don't open the cold tap.
Pretty sure these couldn't be used on a power shower. I'm sure it would make it bounce from hot to cold and back again. That's what ours does when someone turns the tap on downstairs
No good if it cuts our power shower flow down from 14 ltrs/min which is why I bought it. Glad we're not metered. Nothing like an invigorating power shower.
is for me
You don't need a water butt in Wales do you !?
n/a for London area....:(
Nothing for me in Wales, but there again I have had 2 water butts free in the past
Thanks! Ordered quite a few other things too! All for free!
Cheers for this.
Recently got a gunkpot, two tap aerators', two packs of water retaining gel (for plant pots), and an aerating replacement shower head from Severn Trent.
thats a new thing for me , I am in California , a real "green" state but no one has ever mentioned a "Gunkpot" here maybe I need to start selling them here ;)
Love that name...
You're very welcome.
I have good water pressure and got one of these in their 99p range, it's great. Obviously not the power of a regular one but I got used to it after a month and it uses SO much less water.
Anyone else read the name as Hans Gruber?[image missing]
£24.98 for the equivalent Mira shower head from United Utilities! They did give us a £50 rebate though when they put everyone at risk of contracting Cryptosporidium the summer before last We had to boil all our drinking and food prep water for 6 weeks so little consolation really.
All new shower heads have a water limiter - I found this out when I got a new one from Lidl recently, and it would only allow a dribble - not enough for the water heater to work. After some swearing, I found there's a simple washer with a small hole in it, that you just need to remove. Lots of videos on Youtube if it's difficult.
Interestingly enough, I have had one of these Hansgrohe shower heads as well as naturally low water flow in my flat, and found it was awful, like it was barely drizzling on me. Switched it for a £10 Triton from Amazon and it worked much better with the same volume of water. That said this is definitely a nice piece if you can get it for 99p (and have a decent amount of water coming through).
It took me awhile to work out which was which. If only I had these stickers! :)
Why is this cold? It's Free!
still no one can answer me :(
There will be app for this next.
What happens when you press both of them? oO
Applied refused, Worcestershire area
if you are from Scotland,forget it as usual!
OP .. "May or may not be free depending on your water supplier...." I noticed, toooo much restrictions, huh?, lol.
i got mine just a couple of days ago.it's really good & you don't really notice the difference
great if you can get it - united utilities are offering a 4 minute egg timer :o
Thanks, just ordered a shower head, shower timer and numerous other items :D
funnily enough so is mine
Thanks you OP, free via your link but would cost if I go direct via water company
Ah come in, come in!!
So I do ;-)
You have the keys!!
HAHA. Left your door open?
coward, you could come round yanno
Possible, but I can spell at least
Just got this e-mail from Weeex Water, 2 days after applying. :( Flowpoint Round Shower Head - Retro-fit shower head designed to reduce utility bills Rejected:
got one of these last year with an egg timer, site should redirect to your local water company theres a gunk pot too for certain areas
Be careful,if you apply they will know you are telling porkies about the house being unoccupied!oO
[image missing] the original "gunk pot"
You don't put the pot in the bin. You leave it until it's congealed then pour the solid mass in the bin. (Reusing the original pot when washed out...)
Looks great, but not available in my area. if you go to the homepage of savewatersavemoney, you can put in your postcode and it will tell you what free stuff you are entitled to.
cant you sell your used fat and grease? i like this idea and it would be be quite satisfying to "pop" out a load of it in the bin
Personally I would like to see a better alternative to just sticking oil and fat in a plastic or glass container (which should be recycled) and sending it to sit perpetually encased in an item that could have been recycled to landfill - for me this isn't particularly environmentally friendly either. I don't deep fat fry because I just can't understand what an environmentally decent way of disposing of the oil afterwards is - except of course taking it to the recycling centre. But what do they do with it?
Maybe not for long if Nicola Sturgeon has her way about the EU. Look whats happening in Ireland >> http://www.irishtimes.com/business/economy/water-charges-irreversible-in-eu-law-say-lawyers-1.2590023
So glad I live in Scotland and water charges are included in Council Tax payments. Paying for water like this is a national scandal.
Easy - Run the water through a turbine generator connected directly to the tap & charge your phones for free :D >> https://www.amazon.co.uk/BQLZR-Portable-Micro-hydro-Generator-Efficiency/dp/B00K74GPVM/ref=pd_sim_sbs_86_2?
You may or may not save a little water at home but there are hundreds of leaking pipes around the countrty wasting millions of gallons, how do you save money when not on a water meter?
Thanks just ordered a load of stuff!
all paid for by the taxpayer so dont order things unless you really are going to make use of them
Get water meters fitted and use thesr saving products to reduce your bill,sounds ok to me
Do a freedom of information request to see what this cost you in a year's time
Do a freefom of information request in a year to see how cheap or exoensive tbis was.
all water companies offer water saving products. Just google it lol
Thanks OP! I'm a little guilty as I must have wasted tons of water when I used to have very long hair and washed every day! By the way, has anyone received the order yet? do they use Royal Mail or other carrier? I am supposed to receive those plastic pebbles (?) to put in the toilet tank.
can you really actually have a shower in 4 minutes, id rather have a bath anyway but even still 4 minutes!
They charge a set rate depending on house size - number of bedrooms I believe.
Not everyone are on water meter? So then what they have, like how watet company can count usage? Because all ppl which I know have a meter.
38% actually, just looked it up so the majority are unmetered.
Has anyone received it yet??
What do you get on to to receive the free items
Everything I ordered arrived today as well.
I received my gift today. :3
I get a garden water saving kit & I don't even have a garden oO Not so great for me lol
Thanks for the heads up. Only took a few minutes and ended up not having a charge for delivery either
No, she is saving water :)
love the picture. she looks like she's having a orgasam .
Makes sense that it wouldn't be free for all parts of the country. It was free for me in North London.
Any one read T&T?? "For bathroom products our standard delivery cost for smaller deliveries (usually by post) is £4.99 and for medium to larger deliveries (usually by courier) is £15, however this may vary depending on which part of the country you live in. Once we have received payment you will be contacted to arrange a suitable delivery time." So is not a freebies.
Just got rejection email
Tried that one! My wife didn't like it, though. I wanted to put a timer on it........ Anyway, as this limits to 8l/min, the water bill is now back to how it was before she decided to start taking showers ("girls don't smell" was the mantra before that). Thames Water actually wrote to me asking me to check for a leak as the water bill had doubled......
These used to be free. I got a couple when we moved home to keep as spares.
I had the same problem until I realised the electricity isolator was outside the shower room-a quick flick off always did the trick!
That's right, it is not easy to get a job with Marks and harder still to rise up the ranks and become a senior person. All marketing messages go through vetting and approval internally by many before publication.
So Marks and Spencer top guys then?
It turns out that this saving is actually based on: a household with a 'power' shower taken by all those in a 4-person houehold and is then the saving in heating and (metered) water bills!! Very misleading.
I had one of these, it lasted about 2 showers before some water got inside and the sand stopped flowing. Useless.
I spend 4 minutes waiting for water to get hot.
I have never understood these save water campaigns, it's not really saving water is it as it all runs back down the plughole. Perhaps if you have a water meter you will benefit, however if you are not on a meter then surely it's just a private company with massive profits asking you to save them money.
Didnt work for my area but did take me to products I can order in my area not as many but still cool
Not just affinity. See this page and look for your supplier. What you get varies depending on the company.
FFS, why don't they just send out vans and deliver this efficiency to everyone in their area of control.
still a current offer. Just ordered. Free delivery.
just ordered thanks, looks to be great value and delivered
these are £20 in all asda's that have stock, for anyone who cant get this.
Never understood the point of these. You will just end up flushing the loo twice to shift what is in it.
I hear u?, & I too agree ... & so are some of the other 'repeat' Deals upon here still? .. Dettol soaps apparently gets placed upon here on a near 'Weekly' basis too, etc, etc? (plays both ways ..... ) hahahaha, lool. :-)
LOL thanks to op for making the effort but these and poundland belkin cables are a very regular occurrence
Similar to this was also Posted only last Week here: https://www.hotukdeals.com/freebies/save-water-freebies-from-your-local-water-company-2156954 And again 3 Weeks ago too, here: https://www.hotukdeals.com/freebies/free-water-saving-bath-buoy-via-united-utilities-save-water-save-money-2147695 Lol. :-) Worth hooking up allllll ..... if possible?, lol.
I'm not a toilet expert but you don't need a fancy bag to do it. Just simply open the toilet cistern's lid and adjust the floating ball's angle and job done within a minute. The actual question is whether you are going to have enough water to flush the stuff properly after the water's impact is reduced. Some time ago I had to do something exactly opposite to successfully get rid of the stuff within one flush (number two of course).
i recieved it today, thx :)
Four minutes?! What sort of a madman has that quick showers?? Don't you know we need 21 minutes just standing under the water to contemplate and another 3 minutes to wash....
Hot, but I already use my missus as a timer, when the hot water is all used up, it's my turn.
I'd happily pay £240 a year for 2 extra minutes a day
You need to go through the https://www.savewatersavemoney.co.uk/ address rather than the link on here, it will then tell you if you are eligible. Otherwise you are wasting you time like I did and the order will be cancelled. 'Im afraid that after reviewing your order we have been unable to fulfill your request. Unfortunately our system suggests that your household is not within the region of the Water Company you selected.
Southern Water not on their list (_;)
Nothing 4 thames water
Nothing here for West Sussex.
None for county Durham either.
brilliant wish the bath saver had been in stock, thanks op
Received my shower timer,tooth timer and shower head.
I was dubious but I ordered 5 freebies: shower head, tap aerator kit, shower timer, tooth timer and bathbuoy. all arrived today. took 10 days for delivery but can't grumble for freebies.
lol... sounds like u over-enjoyed that shower head
Can't see these arriving as they will check all postcodes
I just ordered and I live in Belfast. What do you think the chances are of it being accepted? :|
out of stock - needs to be expired :/
Only available in penguins and pirates! ;-)
not available in wales :(
Im not an affinity water customer but still managed to order one? Looks like a great idea ^_^
forgot to do this last time I saw this on here. ordered now though. heat added!

Here's Thames water link: freebies.thameswater.co.uk
Apple Pie share code - 455053029 apple pie first one to grab it :)
just to say this worked so worth trying everybody i did this before so didn't think i could get it again. thanks op
thames water, worked...!!
Will give it a go heat added thanks :)
If you put your postcode in on the site that the link takes you too it will tell you your water supplier and what you can have for free. A lot of the water companies are always giving various items away.
I'm with Northumbrian Water, no problems getting the freebie. Many thanks.
I'm with Yorkshire water, I put in my postcode and they sent them out.
Only for United Utilities customers.
Thank you just ordered mine from united utilities :) heat added.
Try contacting southern Trent water? Direct, you never know
Typical, all BUT Severn Trent...
Offer not available in northern ireland
[quote=Chuckles1001]Shame they don't know Seven Trent Water or my postcode :( good deal for people who can get it/or can be bothered to email them :)[/quote linky https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/stwater.co.uk
portsmouth water wont let me order
Yorkshire waters the best.....
Just opened my package that I got last week from Northumbrian Water. I only thought I was a getting the free toilet flush water saver but when I opened the package there was all sorts in there. However I only ordered the toilet flush saver for a reason, I have an old toilet that uses loads of water when it flushes. In the package were tap water savers, a shower water saver, a shower 5 minute egg style time and of course my toilet flush saver. :) Well done Northumbrian Water for being so generous. However, my water pressure is so bad that I have no use for the tap water savers, I do not have a shower so the shower water saver is of no use, however, I suppose I could use the 5 minute shower egg timer to time myself in the bath, see if I can get in and out in record time, not sure if it helps the environment though. ;) :( So, I do not know whether to congratulate Northumbrian Water for being so generous or commiserate them for contributing to general waste. :( But then again, the other stuff can go on Freecycle I suppose, hope someone can use them :)
Good stuff, found Thames Valley Water freebies here: https://www.thameswater.co.uk/save-water/9692.htm
nope still working
As always with these, as it's buried deep in the description, you can't use these with electric showers.
cool, ordered what I could get for free from Bristol water.
cheers op just looked up mine at united utilities don't get the shower head but a couple of small bits direct link here
Apologies i have just noted that not ALL water companies are doing the shower head, but ALL are giving our freebies. ..... sorry!! so sorry!!
My stuff arrived today, had forgotten about it Only got penguin island and brush timer for kids.
Anglian Water do some good stuff http://www.anglianwater.co.uk/environment/using-water-wisely/we-products/ http://www.anglianwater.co.uk/environment/using-water-wisely/we-products.aspx http://www.anglianwater.co.uk/environment/using-water-wisely/Save-water-in-the-garden.aspx
It's not like we've had any shortages of rain this year, this is all just a smokescreen to hide how none of our foreign owned water companies invest money in water infrastructure.
pirate Island out of stock. gutted. I refuse to have a bath until they have some more
i was being facetious, I know we all over pay the robbing utility company's, and I also know the "free" stuff will be the cheapest poorly made crap they can get there hands on. Instead of sending out cheap crap they should use the money to repair some of there leaks!
Thanks a lot OP :D
Just ordered with South West Water - thanks
Ordered thanks :)
nothing for south east :(
Thanks ordered :)
or welsh water :(
Or move to Scotland???? We've got loads in the taps. I even watered my garden in the rain last week.
the best way to save money on water is get a water meter, I've moved into a new-build flat when meters are compulsory in new houses, I can't believe how much cheaper it is X)
Ordered from here months ago and recieved nothing
Only Essex & Suffolk!
Thanks for this! :) will be useful!
Not much information in the post, but looks like a useful website with links to the freebies you can get depending on the water supplier you are with
they are all useless but they have to offer these as part of the governments green initiative. They arent free at all as the water companies just put the cost of them on to our water bills so we all pay in the end.
Arrived very quickly thanks!!
Same with me, got them today (Saturday service?). Not bad. Cheers op.
no offers for welsh water
got these the last time around but was not happy with the shower head ... had to change it back later on.
some of the products are crud though......the hippo bag, screwed up my toliet.....the shower head is about as useful as a chocolate fireguard
Water suppliers raise their prices in line with RPI (not CPI), while their customers wages are declining in real terms. They should use the money to fix leaks and provide a decent service. Can't be long now before the next hosepipe ban!
