Water is expensive in the UK, and the government is crafting measures to reduce its cost.

While the regulator, Ofwat, is due to examine Chancellor George Osboune’s idea in 2016, Westminster World took a look at an alternative way of making the energy bills shorter. “This wellness machine and uses 80% less energy”, says director of Hamwells Rob Choimpff pointing at a standing shower next to him.
