Who are Water Plus?
We’re the trusted water retail partner for over 360,000 customer accounts for organisations throughout England and Scotland. From supermarkets to multinational manufacturers, national chains to corner shops, the public sector to charities, we support organisations of all sizes across all sectors with their water accounts. And we’re award winners for our work that’s helping our customers to save water and lower their environmental impact, too.
What we do
We make managing your water account easy, so you don’t have to worry about it – and ensure that you pay the best price for water retail services. Why? Because whether it’s just for tea and toilets, or for a critical part of the production process, we know water is essential for every organisation. Water efficiency, water account management, billing, payments, meter reading – we make it all straightforward with:
- great digital services, - everything you need to keep up-to-date with your account is online
- industry leading water efficiency and sustainability advice to save you water and money
- excellent customer support
As the UK’s largest water retailer, formed in 2016, we have a wealth of knowledge, experience and customer insight to share - all from our offices in Stoke-on-Trent and Glasgow.
How we'll help you
Partnering with us is about more than just your water account. We want to share our wealth of knowledge, experience and customer insight in saving water and show how that can cut your water and energy costs. We’ve installed hundreds of data loggers, including 450 in 2021 - they’re helping businesses to keep track of their water use, where it’s wasted and saving our partners thousands of pounds. With data loggers, we helped a university find £50,000 of savings and a 1,750 litre per hour hidden leak, that we helped to fix. Our expertise saved the Caravan Club £172,900 a year, Euro Garages £25,000 a year and identified £500,000 of savings for North Lanarkshire Council. And that’s just to name a few, but it’s not just the big organisations we help. For a local scout and guide group in Stoke-on-Trent, we’ve installed water-saving kit on site and shared water-saving tips, so they can spend more of their funds on the children. We've also researched employee attitudes to water at work in both the private and public sector to raise awareness and get people thinking about water.
