Following on with the theme that sometimes the most simple things can produce the most significant outcomes (read the article on treating water in the third world), this month’s tips focus on how to save water with the bare minimum of costs.
This month’s tips are all aimed at encouraging building owner’s to use water as efficiently as possible and from cutting bills, to helping to save one of the world’s most important natural resources, this is something we all need to pay close attention to.
- Ensure your building’s toilets are fitted with sensor taps to lessen the chance of a tap being left on overnight.
- Check for leaks, as you never know where you could be losing water.
- Appoint a water champion who’s in charge of checking for leaks and ensuring all staff know about the need to save water for example: not overfilling the kettle and using a bowl to wash dishes rather than simply leaving the hot tap running into the sink.
- Make sure everyone is on-board, because all your best-laid water-saving plans could go down the plughole if after office hours workers aren’t committed to best practices.
- Fit your fridge with a water dispenser or leave a jug of cold water in the fridge so users don’t need to leave the cold tap running to get chilled water.
- Get yourself a water meter so as to monitor where and when you maybe wasting or overusing water.
- Lag pipes and external taps to prevent bursting, especially during the colder months leading up to the winter.
