We’re continuing our series, “Everything your business needs to know about…”, with Water Efficiency.

We have a wide range of top tips and resources available to our customers to help you stay in control of your business water, keep your bills up-to-date and your costs down.

Why save water?

Growing population, changing water demands and erratic weather patterns are putting increasing pressure on our water supply. Not only that, but providing clean, potable drinking water to businesses requires a lot of energy. We can help our customers understand how much water they use, avoid leaks, identify simple ways to save water and money, and measure their water savings.

How do I start saving water in my business?

From simple fixes like ensuring leaking taps get fixed promptly, to larger scale solutions such as repurposing rainwater for flushing toilets or irrigating gardens, efficient water usage is well within your reach. Start by reading our helpful Water Efficiency Guide which is packed with easy and practical tips to help your business save water and money. It’s also useful to do a simple review of your business water usage by using our free Site Walk Around Checklist.

Submitting regular meter readings on MyAccount

If your business has a water meter, it’s easy to submit regular meter readings on MyAccount to help to track your water usage to improve efficiency and keep your bills up-to-date so you only pay for the water you use. By submitting regular meter readings, you can get an idea of how much water your business is using and monitor the success of your efficiency measures. Tracking your water usage makes it easier to identify sudden spikes in water consumption, which could indicate a leak.

Plus, for every meter reading you submit that we use to calculate your water bill, we’ll donate £1 to Save the Children’s Emergency Fund. Find more about our partnership with Save the Children here.
