Water Conservation

Using water efficiently will help keep costs down conserve water resources into the future. Depending on the type of business you operate, water can account for a substantial cost to your business.

Sometimes you have to spend money to save money. More efficient appliances will pay for themselves especially if your business is on a metered supply.

Toilets can be expensive to flush. Older models can use 10 or 11 litres each flush. New dual flush toilets use about 1/3 less water. Waterless urnials are even better.

Minimising Water Use

  • Install water efficient appliances
  • Encourage staff to turn off taps
  • Repair reported leaks promptly
  • Install flow restrictors on taps
  • Install modern toilets with dual flush
  • Install sensors for urinals
  • Use timers for irrigation
  • Use broom rather than hose for cleaning where possible
  • Fix leaky taps
  • Use alternative water sources such as rainwater where possible
  • Plant native plants around buildings

Develop a water conservation plan with objectives and targets.
