water audits

Being efficient in terms of water management is one of the best ways to save on water costs and consumption.

What is a water audit?

A water audit aims to identify inefficiencies and potential savings in water consumption.

The strategic analysis, Benchmarking, is a tool that allows an analysis of water performance in various sectors and business segments, allowing an x-ray of the installation and where to focus efforts for savings.

Benchmarking allows:

  • provide important information on your water consumption
  • identify less efficient zones/areas
  • allow you to compare your company’s performance with others in the same industry/sector
  • help you identify improvement measures.

A water audit consists of three key points:

a. Analysis of the working environment

Work environment analysis will be carried out, with validation of the water supplier’s invoices ensuring that the tariff the customer is on is ideal for their business.

Historical consumption data will also be analysed in order to identify consumption patterns and abnormal periods of use.

b. Site visit

A technical site visit allows a systematic approach to analysing the water network, appliances and use of the facilities.

Green World seeks to identify any leaks, waste areas or inefficiencies in water use.

During the visit, all technical aspects will be discussed with facility managers and key members of staff in order to gather an accurate understanding of water usage practices and processes with a view to implementing improvement measures.

For a reduction and optimization of costs and water consumption, a training on water efficiency will also be carried out in order to involve all users of the facility.

c. Report

In a last phase, a water audit report is presented which will summarise all the conclusions, improvement measures and water consumption rationalisation plan.

This report will focus on the excess consumption with recommendations on how to reduce usage.

The Green World team will present measures on how to improve practices and which devices can be installed to increase efficiency, with a summary of potential savings.

  • reduced effluent volumes due to less water consumption and, in many cases, lower effluent treatment or disposal costs
  • a good return on investment in recycling and re-use of water investments
  • reduced carbon footprint and improved corporate social responsibility

monitoring of water consumption:

Get smart with data and reduce your water consumption costs.

what is water consumption monitoring?

Automated meter reading technology has revolutionised water consumption monitoring. It uses real-time data to monitor usage as often as every 15 minutes.

The data can be fed into your existing management/monitoring system, or used in a simple web application.

how can my business benefit from automated consumption monitoring?

Changes in water usage can indicate leaks, inefficient practices or processes, or problems with valves, etc. By detecting them as soon as possible, you will reduce water loss, avoiding additional and unnecessary costs and reducing disruption to your business.

the device will enable your business:

  • analyse the data
  • identify any anomalies
  • compare performance across sites
  • compare your consumption with identical sites.
