The cold weather can pose a challenge for business owners when it comes to water management.
Here are some ways to help minimise the impact of the winter season on your property.
This is five tips to get ready for winter water.
1 – The cold weather can cause pipes to break and leak. This is the season when technicians are most likely to be called out. Having the proper insulation and keeping your pipes warm can help prevent them from bursting.
2 – Before you start panicking, make sure you know where your stopcocks are. These can help you easily turn off the water when needed.
3 – Having the proper equipment and keeping your pipes in good condition can also help prevent them from breaking during the cold weather. One of the most important steps that you should take is to regularly check and service your boilers.
Burst pipes can be costly
4 – If you don’t have the proper equipment and knowledge about your water consumption, a burst pipe can cost you up to £41,000 annually.
Keeping your pipes in good condition can also help prevent them from breaking during the cold weather.
Unfortunately, many businesses are not able to properly identify and monitor leaks which leads to big losses.
5 – Having a data logger can help you keep track of your water usage. This will identify areas where you can cut down on your water bills.
