Water efficiency survey
We know that taking action to reduce water wastage in your business will help cut your overheads by lowering your water and energy bills. It also reduces your carbon footprint and is much better for the environment.
To help you achieve this, we’re always on hand to support you and can provide two types of water efficiency audits (or health checks) for your business.
Standard Water Efficiency Survey
This is an assessment of ‘domestic’ water use on your site (such as toilets, taps, kitchens and cleaning facilities). The aim is to identify opportunities for saving water and to quantify these, where possible, in volumetric terms. One of our team will review your current water consumption and specific elements of the water installation at each site.
The work will include a selection of the following activities which will help identify the products you 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
If you use water in your processes, our Process Audits can help you identify efficiencies; visit our Process Audit page to learn more.
Most companies and organisations know how much water they use, but may not always use this knowledge to help them reduce the amount of water consumed.
Companies that adopt a systematic approach to water reduction typically achieve a 20 - 50% decrease in the amount of water they use. By using less water, companies save money on both water supply and wastewater disposal.
This simple guide is to help small businesses understand where they are using water and how they can practically reduce the amount of water being used or wasted. Regular surveys may also help to identify any hidden leakage problems which cost businesses large amounts of money every year.
