Water management solutions
The extensive range of water management solutions which AquaCare can offer can complement and enhance the savings made by your water retailer.
AquaCare can help you manage your water resources better
We can carry out full water audits on your business - we will work with you to introduce effective technologies which will save you money on both your water and wastewater bills and reduce your carbon footprint.
As your wastewater bill is linked to your water bill - that will automatically get reduced too, so you save twice.
We could install a water flow monitor, fit pressure reducing valves, fit sensor controls or waterless urinals, check water flushed in WCs, showers and basins to ensure your water is operating at its optimum flow.
We all need to be more water conscious and do our part for the sustainibility of the environment as well as reduce our water and wastewater bills.
Save water, save money, save the planet!
Undetected water leaks in pipework can end up costing your business thousands of pounds.
Old pipes, in poor condition can cause problems like flooding, loss of water pressure and an increased wastewater bill, as this is based on 95% of your water usage.
We can offer you a service which includes a leak survey, one day's leak detection and reinstatement.
This is an excellent way to monitor exactly how much water you're using throughout the day and night.
Many customers are unaware that their high water bills could be as a result of a long-standing leaks. Their water pressure could be low, they could have prolonged wet areas in driveways, grass or internal walls.
By logging regular readings every 15 minutes you are able to build an understanding of how your water is being used and when. This will allow you to easily identify potential leaks on your network which may result in a large water bill.
If a leak is found, you could be eligible to a leak allowance from your wholesaler, to cover the cost of your lost water (terms and conditions apply).
Boreholes are used in agriculture, industry, construction and for domestic use. Most water companies use them for their water supply.
The benefits include self-sufficiency and a significantly reduced or non-existent water bill.
Up to 20,000 litres can be extracted a day without a licence, and this can contribute to a saving of around £14,000 p.a. with a return on the original investment within one or two years.
Rainwater harvesting and water reuse
This involves the collection and distribution of rainwater for toilet flushing, irrigation and vehicle washing. Grey water initiatives take water from baths, wash basins, washing machines and dishwashers and then used for toilet flushing.
Reinstatement of old wells and springs
We have been working with customers to help them reinstate old wells or springs, bringing them back into use.
This means that thousands of extra litres of water will be available when supplies are disrupted, with a pump used to extract the water so it can be stored in tanks until it is required.
This offers our customers sustainability, a significant reduction in their water bills and a core part of their contingency planning.

Everyone can reduce their water consumption by simple changes:
- Locate and repair leaks
- Renew float valves in tanks/cisterns
- Toilets – flush volume displacement
- Urinals – flush controls
- Basins – flow reduction/automatic taps
- Showers – nozzle design
- Steam production – condensate return
- Washing processes – looking at flow reduction/recycle/reuse
- Water using processes/equipment
- The use of non-potable water for irrigation.
