Join the Movement on #WorldWaterDay and Learn How to Protect Our Most Precious Resource
For World Water Day, it’s important to remember the impact that our daily water consumption has on the planet. As a company, we are committed to helping domestic and commercial companies reduce their water usage and promote water conservation through the services we provide.
One of the primary ways we help our customers to save water is by fitting cisterns with full flush/half flush capabilities. This simple addition allows users to choose the appropriate amount of water needed to flush their toilet, rather than wasting unnecessary amounts of water with each flush. Similarly, urinal controls help reduce water usage by only flushing when necessary.
We also install sensors PIRs, which ensure that toilets only flush when a building is in use. This prevents unnecessary flushing and saves water in the process. Non-return valves are another effective tool in water conservation, preventing backfilling into the main system and ensuring that water is used efficiently.
Grey water systems are another way we help companies save water. By using water that has already been used once, we can reduce the amount of fresh water needed for tasks such as flushing toilets or irrigating gardens.
Flow restrictors being fitted in commercial appliances, ensures that water is not wasted unnecessarily. Non-concussive taps are another effective way to conserve water, preventing taps from being left running when not in use.
Legionella protection is a critical aspect of water conservation in commercial settings, as it ensures that water is safe for use while also reducing unnecessary water usage. Similarly, commercial water meters allow businesses to track their water usage and make adjustments as needed.
We also fit localised boiler taps, which conserve water by reducing the amount of water that needs to travel from a stored unit to the sink. Secondary return systems ensure that hot water is available quickly and efficiently, reducing the amount of water wasted while waiting for hot water to arrive.
Finally, leak detection is an essential tool for water conservation, allowing us to identify and fix leaks before they become significant issues.
In addition to the services we provide, there are some other things that business owners should keep in mind when it comes to water conservation. One of the most important things to look out for is overflowing pipes, which are often visible on the outside of a building and can result from issues with toilets cisterns and other systems.
These overflows can be costly for businesses, as not only do they waste water, but they can also lead to increased charges for both incoming and outgoing water. By identifying and repairing these issues through planned preventative maintenance contracts, businesses can save thousands of pounds per annum and help to conserve water in the process.
By taking a proactive approach to water conservation and making use of the services we provide, customers can reduce their environmental impact and save money on their water bills. As we celebrate World Water Day, it’s important to remember that we all have a role to play in protecting this precious resource for future generations.
