There are many reasons why conserving water has become a top priority and no matter where you stand on the eco-debate, saving money is something we can all agree on.
A thorough assessment of your property will unearth areas where water’s being wasted and installing water-saving devices will help you prevent any further losses and reduce increasing water bills. Read on to find out more about installing water-saving appliances.
There’s never been a better time to commit to a water management plan and as soon as you start to identify your building’s water-wasting amenities, you’re halfway to saving money, reducing your overall consumption and lowering your carbon emissions.
Below are 4 great water-saving devices that you should consider installing in your building:
- Water meters
Getting a water meter installed means that you’ll only be charged for exactly what’s been used as opposed to being charged on the rateable value of your property. If building occupants are aware of how much water they’re using, they’re more likely to be less wasteful and by getting them on-board with a water management plan, they’ll also feel responsible for your building’s water consumption.
Simple and been around for a while. Getting a Hippo bag installed can save around 3 litres of water every time a toilet is flushed. This is a great means of reducing water consumption in buildings where lease arrangements are due to end within 12 months. – It’s estimated that by having a Hippo Water Saver fitted in a workplace, can actually save you £3 per employee which all helps.
- Sensor taps
By fitting sensor taps to your building’s toilet areas, you’ll be able to regulate the amount of water that’s being used per wash and ensure you’re not allowing your money to literally go down the drain.
- Waterless urinals
These sorts of urinals not only don’t use water, they also cut down on the amount of blockages that can occur through constant use on commercial premises. With low installation costs and no chances of flooding or leaks, waterless urinals can save up to 80,000 litres of water per year in comparison to the traditional flush-controlled alternative.
