Useful Tips for Water Leaks and Water Conservation

Some Water Usage Facts

  • We each use on average 150 litres (33 gallons) of clean treated water each day
  • A running tap can use up to 10 litres (2.2 gallons) of water a minute.
  • A leaking ball-valve in  a water trough can waste up to 150m3 (33,000 gallons) of water per year
  • A diswasher uses between 10 and 40 litres (2.2 and 8.8 gallons) per cycle whether it’s full or not.

Things That Can Waste Water in your Business

  • Are any of the taps in your premises dripping or overflows running?
  • Are taps and hosepipes left running when unattended?
  • Are the water pipes properly covered to prevent them freezing in cold weather?
  • Are the urinals in your toilets flushing automatically?
  • Are your customers and staff aware of their water usage?

Water AuditsDoes your Business Have a Water Leak?

Find out where your water meter is. Normally your meter is located close to the property boundary in a chamber with a stopcock. If you have difficulty locating your meter, InDepth Water Management can assist you.

**County Councils state that it is the consumers responsibility for maintenance and prevention of wastage from the meter.**

  1. Read your meter as work finishes at night – take note of the reading
  2. Read it before work starts in the morning – again record the reading
  3. How much was used overnight – 2 minus 1

If there is a large difference, there may be a leaking pipe.
