Water is often referred to as ‘the forgotten utility’. While many large businesses are clearly focussed on their comprehensive energy strategies, it seems many are yet to implement a strategy around managing their water usage.

Without a water management strategy, many businesses don’t realise when they have a leak or that they are wasting water unnecessarily.  A burst water pipe could easily lose 1,500 litres per hour, which could cost as much as £41,000 a year if left unidentified.  By adopting a good water management strategy whereby, you take a proactive approach to monitoring your water network, you could cut your water bills by as much as 30%.

Here are our top 3 water saving tips:

  1. Detect and stop leakages – leaks that go undetected can cost businesses thousands. Installing data loggers across your water network, will allow leaks to be identified and located quickly.  
  2. Fixing tariff errors – 1 in 3 water bills contain errors, meaning businesses could be unknowingly overpaying.  In a world of complex business water rate structures and ever-changing tariffs, it is more important than ever to check your bills are correct.
  3. Maximise procurement opportunities – only 13% of businesses have taken advantage of the open water market since it opened in 2017¹. Switching to a better deal or setting your businesses up as a self-supplier can bring unique benefits.

Our water experts have worked with a wide range of large businesses across all sectors, from retail to manufacturing and water intensive industries, uncovering millions of pounds of savings. 

It’s time to stop pouring your money down the drain.  Talk to our water experts to find out how our end-to-end water management solution can help you to take control of your water usage and keep your water bills low.
