Improved Method To Save Money On Water

Are you looking for and new and improved method on saving huge amounts of money on your water bills? Have you tried a lot of methods in the past to try and save money and they haven’t worked? Well, if your answer to this question is a yes, then you are looking in the right place. What I will be covering today is exactly that so you too can benefit just like I am.

So what is this new method and why is it so good? The best way to save yourself a huge amount of money on your water bills is to install a rainwater harvesting system. The concept of rainwater harvesting is collecting run off rainwater for re-use. The new and improved method is by collecting run off rainwater from your roof tops then the water is filtered and stored in a water reservation tank. The way the system looks like is better explained in the diagram below.



The reason why rainwater harvesting is so good is because rainwater is completely free. So with this system you are making use of a free resource so you no longer have to pay large amounts of money to supply water than is purified. Apart from the one off cost of the installation you will save money in the long run.

Time For Expansion

I was thinking about having a loft conversion done in my home. If you are wondering why I am thinking about a loft conversion for my home, it is because I think that the loft is a part of my home that isn’t used and is a waste of a good potential room in my home. I also could do with the extra space room in my home because we only have a 3 bedroom house. Although the house is only 3 bedroomed, they are 3 big bedrooms.

I decided I wanted to get a loft conversions done because I want to expand my family but we don not have room for expansion due to the bedrooms. We currently have 2 kids and we want another child. moving out into a bigger and possibly better home is an option but it is not one we are willing to take because we love this neighbourhood and the facilities around it.


We have looked into loft conversions Birmingham before but we are yet to find a company we want to go with to start this project.

Purchasing Underfloor Heating For My Home

I went out and purchased underfloor heating for my home. The reason why I went out of my way to purchase this new heating system is because I thought about  changing my central heating in my home for a while now. Th central heating in my room was very bad to say the least. It is very old and has been in the house since I moved in a many years ago. This is one of the reasons why they are bad because they are so old and not as efficient as they use to be and this is costing me a lot of money in the long run trying to heat up my room, they also look horrible too.

I bought underfloor heating because I was having work done on my flooring and I thought it would be a good idea to install underfloor heating because I know it is more efficient that central heating as I get warm floors too. One of the best things about underfloor heating is that the room looks so much better now that I have had the central heating removed. I am also saving money too!

Take Care of Your Back

It is very important you take care of your back. The reason why it is so important is because it is the stem of your body. The spinal cord is where all the signals and sent from your brain to your ligaments and this is essentially what controls all you action that you do. If you was to sever the stem or fracture a delicate part of your spine it can cause and in most cases cause paralysation. This is a very serious issue and you do not want this to happen to you.


This is why I have created this post to help raise the awareness of back related issues so you do not start treating before it to late as this can cause long term issues if it is ignored. These issues then cannot be treated through regular treatment and can only be treated through surgery. If you are having chronic back pain it is advised that you go to see a chiropractor. I had to go to visit a Birmingham chiropractor for my back pains and they eventually disappeared.

Researched On Shredders

I wanted to buy a paper shredder but I wasn’t sure on what one to buy. I know you may not think there is such a variety of paper shredders and neither did I. The reason why I know there is a large variety of shredders out there is because before I buy something, I always like to do a lot of research on the item before I buy it and in this case I was surprised with the amount of variety for such an item.


I wanted to buy a paper shredder to shred my important documents that contain confidential information. I get ver paranoid if I think something isn’t secure enough, this is why I wanted to buy a shredder with high security. After the time I spent researching on what shredder to buy I found out that I required a cross cut shredder that shredded the documents into tiny pieces and not just a standard shredder. I also found a website that specialises in shredders and they are called shreddy gogo. I also bought my paper shredder form them.

Sewage Treatment: How It Works

Have you ever wondered how a sewage treatment plant works? If you haven’t then that is perfectly fine as a I know a lot of us probably aren’t interested, but if you are interested in the unusual topic then please continue reading and I will be doing a brief breakdown on sewage treatment and sewage treatment plants.

Sewage Treatment

Sewage treatment is a process in which sewage (waste water) is collected and treated in order to remove bacteria and diseases and any other waste that is in the water so that it is pure again and ready to be used. There are two types of sewage treatment plants. One is a large industrial building, the other is an onsite sewage control system. The large industrial sewage treatment plant deals with a whole areas sewage and supplies water to the masses whereas the onsite sewage treatment plant only controls sewage for the minority on that site. They both work differently though, the onsite plant collects raw sewage then breaks it down so it is legal to release into the environment through a twin wall pipe or any other piping that may be available.

My Experience With Stretched Ears

Are you  looking to stretch your ears but you would rather know what it feels like to go through the process of stretching your ears and provide you with their useful information about stretched ears. If so, then you are in luck. What I am writing about today is exactly that. I have had my ears stretched for over 4 years now and I have gradually increased the size to a fairly large size.

The main thing you need to know about stretching is that ear stretching is a form of body modification so it should be taken seriously. Stretching is also a very long process and unfortunately cannot be rushed, you should also stretch with an ear stretching kit. Maintaining the stretch is also something you have to keep on top of too.


Having stretched ears in my opinion is great. I have no problem with them and I love the jewellery that is available too. What I like the most about stretched ears is that you can make room for bigger and better jewellery. That is the reason why I stretched mine

Maintaining My Garden For Less

I wanted to start helping the environment more and start to reduce the amount of water I use so very little of it will go to waste. I did some research on how I can reduce my water usage in a more convenient way. I know that I use a lot of my water when I am maintaining my lovely garden. This is why I thought it would be such a great idea to have a water tank installed on my property. Not only are water tanks great for monitoring your water usage and being able to store large amounts of water, they are also perfect for gardening because it is instant access and easily accessible.


I started to look online for large water tanks because I thought that a large one would be perfect for my back garden. I found a few water tanks that I like but I am still looking for a water tank that will also look good in my back garden because they do come in various shapes and colours.

Pests Are Like Us

Everyone has had pests in their home at on point so we can all relate to how annoying they are. Pests are very annoying little creatures and can be very stubborn too which makes them very hard to remove out of your property. Believe me, I have been there done that, it is not something you want to get yourself caught up with. They can hide virtually anywhere in your property, even places you wouldn’t even imagine them to be.


In my opinion, it is vital you include pest preventative measures your property to reduce the risk of an infestation. Pests love our homes as much as we do, why? Because pests have the needs to what us humans have. We require a safe environment that provides us with, water, food, warmth and comfort and so do the pests! The infestation that I had were mice in my back garden. Now this mice infestation wasn’t due to my lack of housekeeping or to do with me in general but if I had pest preventative measure already in place I would have been fine. I called pest control sutton coldfield to lay down pesticides and traps in my back garden.

Ancient Garden With a New Addtion

I recently purchased a water feature to go into my back garden. I have always loved water features and I had a good look for a water feature that would fit perfectly with the style I have in my back garden. I have an ancient Chinese theme to my back garden with a fish pond too that contains koi carps (my favourite fish). I purchased this amazing water feature of a dragon spraying water from his mouth. I wanted this water feature to be linked in with my pond that I already have if it was possible.


I called a drainage specialist to have a look and see if it was possible for me to link the water feature I bought with the pond that I already have. The specialist said it is completely possible he just will require an extra land drainage pipe and a few alterations here and there. I was very pleased with this news and not long after, I now have the perfect water feature in my perfect garden!
