Water Efficiency Audit

We are here to help you evaluate water usage, identifying inefficiencies, and implement strategies to optimise water usage and reduce waste.

What we offer

  • Data Collection: The first step involves gathering data related to water consumption, including water bills, meter readings, and any other relevant records. This data provides a baseline for understanding current water usage patterns.
  • Site Inspection: Conduct a thorough inspection of the property to identify areas where water is used, such as faucets, toilets, showers, irrigation systems, cooling towers, and manufacturing processes in industrial settings. This involves visually inspecting fixtures and equipment for leaks, inefficiencies, and opportunities for improvement.
  • Measurement and Monitoring: Install sub water meters or loggers to accurately measure water usage in different areas of the property. Continuous monitoring helps track water consumption patterns over time and identify anomalies or areas of high usage.
  • Analysis: Analyse the data collected to identify opportunities for water conservation and efficiency improvements. This may involve comparing water usage patterns across different areas of the property, benchmarking against industry standards, and calculating water use efficiency metrics.
  • Identify Opportunities for Improvement: Based on the analysis, identify specific measures to reduce water consumption and improve efficiency. This may include repairing leaks, retrofitting fixtures with water-saving devices, optimizing irrigation schedules, upgrading equipment to more water-efficient models, and implementing behavioural changes.
  • Cost-Benefit Analysis: Evaluate the costs associated with implementing water-saving measures against the potential water and cost savings. This helps prioritize actions based on their return on investment and feasibility.
  • Implementation Plan: Develop a comprehensive plan outlining the specific actions to be taken, responsible parties, timelines, and budget requirements. Consider phased implementation for large-scale projects and prioritize quick-win measures that require minimal investment but offer significant water savings.
  • Implementation: Execute the plan according to the established timeline, ensuring that all identified measures are implemented correctly and efficiently. This may involve coordinating with maintenance personnel, contractors, and other stakeholders, as necessary.
  • Monitoring and Evaluation: Continuously monitor water usage after implementing the water-saving measures to assess their effectiveness. Compare actual water usage against predicted savings and make adjustments as needed to optimise performance.
  • Reporting and Documentation: Document the results of the water audit, including findings, recommendations, implemented measures, and achieved savings. Regularly report progress to stakeholders and senior management to demonstrate the impact of water conservation efforts.

By following these steps, a water audit can help identify opportunities to reduce water consumption, lower operating costs, and enhance sustainability efforts, benefiting both the environment and the bottom line.

Could your portfolio, properties, buildings, or sites use less water? Do you have to prepare a water savings management or efficiency plan? Are you looking to achieve a better NABERS rating? Do you want to save money and water?
