I fear what we are seeing right now with litter and mess is the calm before the storm. If last year was anything to go by its going to be even worse this year if there are no foreign holidays allowed. There really needs to be a national campaign on keeping Britain tidy again, especially this year with I would suggest minimum £1000 fines, no excuses.

My combi-boiler is in the utility room and I always take the washing-up bowl to fill it from the nearby tap, thus reducing the amount of water being run-off before it gets hot.
The "hot (but actually cold)" run-off water is collected in empty milk bottles, then used to water the house plants.

Being Norfolk, we have a green wheelie-bin which is for land-fill rubbish and a black wheelie-bin which is for recycling!
The range of recycling contents is quite wide and must just be placed in unwrapped in a mixed state: glass, paper, card, metal, foil, plastics, so pretty good.

However, I have had problems persuading my son that putting a plastic yoghurt pot inside a cardboard cereal pack is not helpful.

Couldn't fathom your link, Jan.

We are thinking of getting one of those Quooker hot water taps. I see that they are offering filtered drinking and even sparkling water with them now.

What couldn´t you fathom? are they not available in the UK? You set the clock to whatever time you want the instant hot water, my tank is upstairs, without the pump I have to waste a lot of water before it runs hot , with this you turn on the tap and within a second hot water is there.

But you can't make proper tea with them. Water needs to be boiling and not boiled. Big difference.

We don't have a water tank as its a combi boiler, so not required.

My Valliant VCR 420 is also a Combie boiler. Why do you say not required, if you have to wait an age for hot water then the timer pump is the answer for instant hot water.

As I said, we have no water tank Jan. There is nowhere to store hot water apart from in the pipes themselves. Like any combi, when we turn on the hot water tap, the boiler cranks up and hot water gets pulled through. It's slow due to the distance from the boiler to our hot water taps.

In our case a timer pump would make no difference as the combi will only heat up water on demand. If a pump demanded hot water it would have no where to go until it was called upon.

I never run hot water in the bathroom (apart from the shower) for the very reason that I've finished washing my hands before the hot water reaches the tap. So it's permanently turned to cold.

Absolutely Jean but it's difficult trying to explain that to some people.

Our hot water tank is conveniently positioned beside the kitchen and beneath a bathroom to get hot water very quickly. But even so rinsing a cup or washing hands and the hot water only arrives as you finish wasting a 3kw. heater every time.
Sadly we also have a shower in our bedroom at the other end of the house that was an afterthought that must take 3 or 4 litres of water before it runs hot every time. So we either use the other bathroom or make sure we shower within minutes of each other.
