Water conservation is the practice of injecting efficiency into water usage & reducing unnecessary waste. According to Fresh Water Watch, water conservation is important because fresh clean water is a limited resource, as well as a costly one. As a business operator, you are well aware of the financial costs incurred by inefficient water use. Conservation of this natural resource is critical for the environment — and your wallet.
Using water efficiently to reduce unnecessary water usage
Our Approach to Water
Conservation & Metering:
There are various approaches to Water Metering (flow measurement), displacement and velocity. Each make good use of a variety of technologies. Common displacement designs include oscillating piston and nutating disc meters. Velocity-based designs include single and multi-jet meters and turbine meters.
There are also non-mechanical designs, for example, electromagnetic and ultrasonic meters, and meters designed for special uses. Most meters in a typical water distribution system are designed to measure cold potable water only. Specialty hot water meters are designed with materials that can withstand higher temperatures. Meters for reclaimed water have special lavender register covers to signify that the water should not be used for drinking.
A building that leaks 10% can double your monthly water bill. Clearly, water metering is important for businesses that have high water usage. While the meter itself is important, the platform that reads the data is equally important. ENERGYWARE utilizes a spoiling technique because it will capture information every sixty minutes and then provide leak alerts immediately. The key to strong water metering is real-time information, coupled with onsite execution by the facilities team.
