Reducing how much water you use is common sense. Every litre of water which flows through your water meter needs to be paid for. The less you use the lower your bill. As the majority of wastewater charges are also calculated based upon a percentage of your water usage if you use less water you will save on your sewerage charges also.

Our PURE services include a variety of measures designed to help you save money, including leak detection and repair.

Leaks are a reality of plumbing systems, whether you have a small shop or a large manufacturing plant. The lengthier and more complex your pipework the higher the risk, especially during winter and when excavating your site. Many businesses do not know where their pipework runs, how old it is, whether it can be easily accessed or if it is buried below reinforced concrete underground. However, every business is responsible for their underground pipework and throughout their premises once it has passed the wholesale water meter. This responsibility extends to include the cost of any water which travels through the pipes and is lost through a leak, even if the water is draining into the ground and not being used.

Leak detection and repair

Whether you have a small shop or a large manufacturing plant, leaks are a reality of plumbing systems. The lengthier and more complex your pipework, the higher the risk, especially during colder weather. Every business is responsible for its pipework once it has passed the wholesale water meter.

However, many businesses do not know where their pipework runs, how old it is, whether it can be easily accessed or if it is buried below reinforced concrete underground. This responsibility extends to include the cost of any water which travels through the pipes and is lost through a leak, even if the water is draining into the ground and not being used.

If your flow monitor indicates that you may have a water leak, we can deploy our experienced leak detection and repair teams to identify its source.

Leaks above ground are easy to spot, but an underground leak can run unnoticed for years, so you may just mistakenly accept that your ‘high’ water bills are normal.

Devon County Showground Leak Repair

The showground’s water meter showed a constant flow rate, even when the site was closed overnight, and their water bills were excessive. The area is large, extending to some 150 acres and the network of underground pipes is considerable, so this had the potential to be a complex and protracted process.

However, our experienced leak detection team discovered four leaks in total and duly repaired them over several visits. These repairs could save the showground a substantial £51,000 a year from their water bill.

Additionally, Source for Business petitioned the wholesaler for a leak allowance. This was granted which resulted in a refund of two years worth of water lost through the leak.
