    How to deliver sustainable savings on water usage for your building

    It always seems strange when people talk about water shortages in the UK but when the Head of the Environment Agency, Sir James Bevan speaks, as he did last month, you know it is time to take notice. He told delegates at the Waterwise conference that in around 20 to 25 years, unless we take action, there would not be enough water to supply the needs of England. Alongside that startling fact is the knowledge that water bills are also due to increase by an average of 2% in the UK from April 2019.

    So how can you start to deliver responsible water management, and consequential cost savings for your organisation? One area which we think is a clear opportunity for savings is to look at the water usage from taps across your buildings. These are often situated within busy washrooms which are used on a regular basis and where there is also an opportunity to improve hygiene with their touch-free operation.

    How sensor taps help you save water and save money

    • Conserve water – only supply water when you need it – By using sensor controlled taps in office buildings facilities managers can reduce water usage by up to 70%
    • Reduce your water bill – pay less for your utilities – As water costs rise you can save up to £165.05 per tap per annum, which can translate into many thousands of pounds across an entire estate
    • Save and maximise energy – use energy-saving taps – By using less water, you’ll need to heat less water, providing additional energy saving for your organisation
    • Pain-free maintenance – smart, reliable products – Installation is simple, Conti+ products self-commission without the need for additional trades onsite and ongoing maintenance is simple with above deck access to all working parts available on selected products

    We’ve made some calculations, based on a number of fixed assumptions, which we think provides compelling evidence of the benefits of sensor controlled taps which can deliver a return on investment within a minimum of 12- 14 months.

    Assumptions: Single tap in commercial washroom being used 50 times per day. Water metre supply site. Supply and waste combined costs. Water costs taken from current market supply and waste combined costs, example used Thames Water.

    The Conti+ range of quality, wras-approved products can deliver savings to your building that can recover the capital cost within a short time and then provide valuable ongoing water savings for your business. CONTI+ are designers and manufacturers of washroom products for public and commercial areas, including showers, taps and urinal controls. For a bespoke calculation for your building please contact Ecoprod directly and take your next step to water saving.
