Install sub-meters

Sub-meters will help you to detect and locate leaks quickly.

They also make it easy to check daily water use in specific areas of your facility and tailor your water efficiency actions to target high water using areas.

We recommend sub-metering these areas:

  • Processing equipment
  • Amenities blocks
  • Cooling towers
  • Landscape and irrigation
  • Water storage tanks filled or topped up with mains supply
  • Other areas such as plant or processing where water is used

Your plumber can advise if sub-metering is a suitable option for your facility and for more complex sties, your plumber and a hydraulic engineer may need to be involved in the planning process when considering sub meters.

Consider installing isolation valves at the same time, they enable you to quickly shut down water supply to specific areas of your facility making it easy to identify water faults.
