Water efficiency survey


Like most businesses, you probably use water for ‘domestic’ type activities, such as toilets, taps and showers.

Most businesses know how much water they use, but don’t always know how to use this knowledge to reduce the amount of water being consumed. 

We have a basic water efficiency survey form that you can download for free at the bottom of this page. Remember, we offer free advice on our help and advice portal

If you’d like more support, we can survey the domestic areas within your business to help identify savings and efficiencies by reducing the amount of water you use.

It’s a quick and convenient way to get peace of mind – or to pick up on any complications and get them fixed.

How does it work?

One of our team will review your current water consumption and specific elements of the water installation at each of your sites.

Our surveys involve a selection of the following activities, which will help identify the products your business may need to be more water efficient:

  • Making a general inspection of domestic water systems
  • Analysing meter readings to determine current water consumption patterns
  • Identifying site sub-metering
  • Assessing possible extent of water leakage both above and below ground
  • Assessing urinal cistern control mechanisms
  • Commenting on water management procedures, if appropriate
  • Summarising total potential water savings

How would this benefit you?

  • If you’ve never used a systematic approach to water reduction before, then you could reduce your water usage by around 20-50% if you follow the survey’s recommendations
  • This can help reduce your water bills and lessen your impact on the environment

What type of business would benefit?

  • Any smaller business with a handful of sites or larger business who want to have a better understanding of how they can reduce the water used for domestic type activities
  • If you’re a larger business who uses water within your processes, then you may want to combine your water efficiency survey with a process audit
