How To Minimize Your Business's Water Consumption

Overconsumption is one of the most common water issues facing businesses today. In addition to being better for the environment, minimizing water usage can also benefit your company’s bottom line. If your Pomona, CA, business has been using a lot of water, it may be time to consider making adjustments to decrease water consumption.

If you have an older building or one that hasn’t been updated in a while, upgrading the equipment that uses water can greatly decrease the amount of water used by your facility. Efficiency generally increases with advancements in technology, so make sure the following equipment in your building is up to date:

  • Irrigation systems
  • Dishwashers
  • Faucets
  • Toilets and urinals

Another simple water upgrade is insulating the pipes. Pipes that are fully insulated can deliver hot water more quickly than uninsulated pipes, so you won’t have to run as much water waiting for it to heat up.

Routine Maintenance
Keeping your equipment properly maintained can decrease consumption and prevent other water issues. If your business has an irrigation system, it is important to regularly check that sprinkler heads are facing the right direction so that they are watering the lawn and plants rather than the parking lot. Adjust the sprinkler schedule as needed to account for changing weather patterns.
In addition to maintaining the sprinkler system, address leaks as soon as you notice them. Compared to large leaks that cause immediate water damage and may even require professional water restoration, small leaks may seem like no big deal. However, they can waste large amounts of water over time.
Some businesses, such as laundromats and restaurants, use a lot of water, and others use comparatively little. All businesses, however, can work to minimize water consumption by keeping their facilities up to date and well-maintained. As an added bonus, doing so decreases the risk of other water issues, such as an overwatered lawn.
