As a SME, it’s likely that your biggest pain point is profitability. It’s a constant battle to keep the cash flowing and to achieve this, you need to concentrate your attention on your core business while keeping your outgoings as low as possible. There are many possible ways of reducing the costs of your business water…

Quick wins

Our downloadable Water Efficiency Guide will give you lots of useful tips and recommendations to help your business save money by saving water. Quick wins include adding hippo displacement devices into your toilet cisterns. These will save up to three litres of water on every flush, which over the course of a year could add up to quite a lot.

Educating your employees about your water saving initiatives is also a vital element in helping you reduce your water costs. Tell them how important it is to not leave the taps running and to report any problems they come across, such as a dripping tap. Did you know, for example, that a dripping tap will waste approximately 60 litres of water a week - however small the amount, it’s all money going straight down the drain.


There are many water-saving measures you can invest in. If you’re unsure what these are, it might be worth investing in a water efficiency audit which will pinpoint measures you can take to save even more water. Equipment you could invest in include aerators in taps, controlled flushing in urinals, low flush toilets, and flow controllers in industrial equipment.

You can also divert greywater (water from sinks, washing machines and dishwashers, as well as collected rainwater) to flush toilets, water the grounds or wash vehicles with.

Staying in control of your usage

The easiest way to stay on top of your usage is to regularly submit meter readings. We make it easy to submit meter readings online so you can ensure your bills stay up-to-date and you only pay for what you use.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Water is a finite resource and as a result of popular programmes such as Netflix’s Brave Blue World, people are beginning to realise that having such easy access to cheap water is soon going to be a thing of the past. In fact, it could only be three decades until we reach the tipping point of not having enough potable water to satisfy the needs of the world’s population. Therefore, by taking even the smallest steps to save water in your business, you’re adding to your CSR credentials.
