3 Ways to Save Water in Commercial Buildings

Water conservation helps the environment and cuts down on utility costs. Use these 3 tips to improve how your business manages water.

One of the easiest ways to save water in a commercial building is to install plumbing fixtures and appliances that are designed for that purpose. Low-flow faucets, toilets, and urinals consume less water without diminishing performance. Motion-activated taps eliminate the risk of someone forgetting to turn off the water.

Reusing water is another helpful practice which can be accomplished in a few different ways. Reclaimed water can be used for irrigation, cooling systems, and emergency fire suppression. Rainwater collection requires extra infrastructure, but reduces the amount of water a facility must buy.

Finally, perform regular preventative maintenance on water equipment and systems. Leaks, whether from pipes, appliances, or HVAC, wastewater and make those systems less effective. Regular maintenance lets you catch and fix small problems before they become big ones, saving you money, time, and hassle.
