Rizwan Nawaz, Booker G.K. Waya, Estimating the amount of cold water wastage in UK households


This paper reports on estimated water wastage in UK households resulting from users waiting for water to reach a sufficiently warm temperature when using a hot water outlet (including kitchen sinks, showers and hand wash basins). It is estimated that, on average, 10% of the daily average per capita water consumption in UK households is wasted in this way.
