Cold Water Supply System

In public facilities, service water is used in three main areas : (1) sanitary applications ; including lavatories, showers, toilets, and urinals, (2) food and beverage applications ; including food preparation, dishwashing, and drinking fountains, and (3) lawn and plant watering. These applications provide significant opportunities for energy saving.

Day to day activities

Field Inspection Check List, including regular cleaning

  • Leakages (from pipes, valves, taps, toilets, etc.)
  • Filters
  • Pumps
  • Water meter

Recommendations, advice and tips

  • A tap leaking at the rate of one drip per second will waste more than 12,000 litres of water a year
  • Fix leaking toilets immediately. A slow, barely visible leak can waste more than 4,000 litres per year. Visible, constant leaks can waste over 95,000 litres
  • Repair or replace leaking hoses and sprinklers
  • The shower is one of the easiest and most cost effective places to reduce your water use
  • An inefficient showerhead can use more than 20 litres of water every minute while an efficient rated one will provide a high quality shower using a maximum of 6 litres every minute
  • Don’t over tighten taps. This can wear the washer and cause leaks
  • Upon replacement, ensure that all new taps are water efficient
