Water saving gadgets for your business

Resolutions don’t have to be all about yourself - why not make a few for the business in your life?

Making your business more water efficient this year will cut water costs, save you money and save water. So that’s better for your budget and the environment too.

To kick of a new ‘efficient’ year here’s our list of great gadgets to save you water.

 

1. Save a flush bag

It couldn’t be easier. If you don’t have a dual flush loo, simply drop the bag in the loo cistern, to reduce the water volume and save 1 litre every time you flush.

That could save you as much as 5000 litres a year!

2. Water saving tap inserts

Easy to fit, pop these tap adapters in to reduce flow rate in your taps by half, down to 5 litres a minute compared to the standard 10 litres

3. Sensor taps

No more taps left running in the workplace toilets, this can save a lot over a year.

4. Flushmatic mains urinal control

It might not sound exciting, but by being in control of water flowing into the urinals in the work place, you can make up to an 80% saving in the costs of water they use

5. Leaky loo strips

A leaking toilet isn't always easy to spot as the water often dribbles invisibly down the back of the pan.

Did you know this could be wasting up to 400 litres of water a day? Over the course of one year, if undetected, this could add up to well over 100,000 litres of wasted water, and in excess of £250 on your water bill.

Simply stick a Leaky Loo strip in your toilets and as if by magic the strip will change colour and show if you’ve got a leak.

6. CombiSmart thermostatic valve

A thermostatic valve that is easily fitted (but must be done by a qualified plumber or a trained CombiSmart installer) to the hot water outlet pipe on the outside of a combination boiler.

It simply accelerates the heating process by slowing down the cold water passing thru to a flow of 3 litres per minute, until it has reached the right temperature (around 43 degrees centigrade), the valve opens to release the water to flow as normal through the outlet pipe at the rate you're used to.

This process helps save both water and energy every time hot water is used. By installing CombiSmart you will use less water and energy which means less money leaving your pocket, on average you can save up to 32,000 litres of water a year.

7. Flow control shower heads

If you have showers at work are you using water efficient shower heads? Change to a flow control head with a regulated flow rate of 8 litres per minute, compared to a standard 15 litres per minute flow rate will save a lot of water and cost.

8. Smart meters

Fitting smart meters with data loggers so you know exactly how much water your using, and when, is a great gadget for being fully in control of your water use. They can help you be more water efficient to save cost and also help to highlight hidden leaks if you ever have one.

9. Technical toilets

Low flush toilets, sensor controlled urinals – updating to the latest kit will mean you’re not flushing money away.

10.Water audit 

Well it’s not a gadget, but if you really want to treat your business why not get a full water audit done. A full analysis of how much water you use and how you use it is a great way to work out the best ways to be more efficient and save money.
