EVERY PURCHASE COUNTS

WATER SAVING TIPS FOR YOUR BUSINESS

 #1

A consumption analysis helps you detect water wastage. Analyse your water consumption to detect any irregularities. Your water supplier or local water company will gladly help you.

 #2

If everything is tight and properly insulated, you save water and energy. Regularly check all seals, drain plugs and insulation to minimise water and heat loss!

 #3

Convert now – modern dishwashers save water and energy. It’s worth spending the money – modern, efficient dishwashers use significantly less water and electricity, which means they pay for themselves over their lifetime. 

 #4

Avoid running water as much as possible! Close the tap in time and use for example a basin filled with water to clean fruit and vegetables. 

 #5

Save with every flush – frugal flushing reduces water consumption. Upgrade your existing cisterns or invest in water-saving cisterns and reduce the water consumption of your toilets by up to two-thirds.
