Our Water Efficiency Management Plan can help your organisation understand where you are using water and prioritise practical and effective ways to improve water use.

Kick-start water efficiency at your workplace

Whether the journey is big or small, it can be tricky to know where to start. We recommend starting with some easy wins, like making sure water-saving equipment is working the way you want it to.

Many of our customers are often surprised to find they have a hidden leak but equally pleased to see the savings on their monthly bill when the leak is repaired. These savings can be reinvested into equipment that minimises water wastage, like taps that only turn on when they sense your hands or flow aerators that deliver less water but with the same pressure.
