What can we do to Reduce our Water Bill?
Here are some tips for implementing good water use practices in the industrial sector

Water use in the industrial sector often represents significant financial costs! Whether you are looking for techniques to optimize your water use in order to reduce your water bill or for ecological reasons, there are several guidelines to help you achieve these goals. 

For starters, choosing the right water treatment system to optimize your water use by reclaiming wastewater and reducing unnecessary water loss will have a significant impact on the amount of water needed for any process. Obviously, if you already have your water treatment system, this step is somewhat unnecessary. 

On the other hand, if you believe that your existing system is consuming too much water, you can start by changing a few things in its design to optimize it. Starting by avoiding the use of technologies that offer poor water recovery such as sand filters and multimedia filters. Then, increasing the recovery level of nanofiltration and reverse osmosis systems through better design, better cross-flow and better use of pretreatment.

Second, in order to continuously monitor the flow in your system, you can add a water meter. This meter continuously monitors the amount of water flowing through your system. Monitoring your water usage within the system allows you to be better prepared to identify fluctuations resulting from any breakage or anomaly.

Finally, although it may seem obvious, when there are leaks in a system, taking the time to repair them can prevent unnecessary losses. This is especially true when it comes to steam leaks.

Although the implementation of these practices obviously represents important costs, we can affirm with certainty that in the long term, it is profitable to consume water in a more responsible way. On the other hand, optimizing your water use is not only a matter of financial investment, it is a matter of life habits and values to implement in order to prioritize good environmental practices in your daily operations.
