While keeping the water supply in working order may not seem a top priority when running a busy operation serving your customers, issues with water pipes at your site can be deceptively costly. Leaks can add up and could cause water at your site to stop completely.
Simple steps can also reduce water costs, and running costs for your business.
Just like homeowners, restaurant, hotel and bar owners are responsible for the water pipes at their site, from the point of the water meter, so it's worth keeping an eye on how much water you’re using and look out for any signs of a leak.
For example, a burst pipe can lose as much as one cubic metre of water – equivalent to 1,000 litres, or 1,333 750ml (75cl) bottles of wine or 1,760 pints of beer, – an hour, which can cost upwards of £26,000 a year, if left unchecked. Find out the steps you can take to look out for leaks to prevent costs increasing below.
If you have a leak at your site then you’ll need to arrange a repair. Water Plus can also provide a Leak Detection and Repair Service. If you’re interested in the service, please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please note: the Advanced Services email inbox is monitored 8:30am to 5:30pm Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays.
