A water audit is designed to identify problems with the way your business is being billed for its water usage and service drainage. If we find you have been overcharged we will work with your supplier and wholesaler to get your business a refund.
A business water audit is a detailed review of your business’s water usage, water charges, supply, and drainage by inspecting your historical water bills.
Our water experts shall use their knowledge of water regulations to identify instances where your business has been overcharged and to find potential savings and improvements for your business moving forwards.
Upon conclusion of the review, our experts will contact your supplier to resolve identified issues quickly and efficiently and to request any rebates due back to your business.
There are plenty of benefits when taking out a business water audit—these range from improving your water efficiency and recouping historical water charges.
Another benefit of a water audit is that it helps your business become more environmentally friendly as it highlights where you are currently consuming water inefficiently.
Our water experts can identify times when your business has been overcharged by analysing:
A business water audit is completely free of charge, and if you go ahead with it, there is no obligation to proceed further down the line. If our water experts find and successfully claim rebates backs from your supplier, then we shall take a percentage of the savings made.
The percentage due on identified rebates will be agreed upfront. If there are no savings identified, you will be charged nothing for the work carried out.
Firstly, to proceed with the water audit, you will need to have spent £5,000 or more a year for the water audit to go ahead.
Once agreed, the audit process is as follows:
Our processes commence with the audit analysis. You will need to provide us with the last 12 months of your business water bills.
Once we receive the copies of your water bills from your provider, our water audit expert will analyse these in detail to check for any discrepancies.
Next, we will ask you for permission to allow one of our fully qualified surveyors to visit your site or sites to undertake a survey.
The survey is to ensure that you are paying for what you use accordingly. All you need to do is to provide us with a time and a date that suits you. Then one of our water surveyors will be there to undertake the survey for you.
Your appointed project manager for the water audit will collate the results from the survey and analyse these. They will then provide you with a detailed report and feedback outlining any issues and any refunds and savings from the claims submitted.
After you have read the report and are happy to go ahead with the claims, we will submit your claims, and your dedicated project manager will be on hand to answer any questions or queries you may have about the process.
After we have been appointed, our water experts will start correcting the problem identified within the survey. We will be in direct contact with your water supplier to ensure a solution has been reached.
We will then look in detail at their work to make sure you receive the refunds found within the survey and the funds are paid to you promptly.
We may need additional information from you during this period to support our rebate claims with your supplier and to maximise the amount you can recoup
Your overall water consumption has been reduced, and you have been refunded any excess payments you are owed. You will now have peace of mind that your business water bills and expenses are as accurate as possible.
A business water audit is essential for many reasons. Firstly an effective water audit can reduce costs by up to 70%, including getting back historical overpayments.
The audit will also help identify any duplicate invoices, estimated readings, overcharging, and billing errors – this will help you improve your businesses overall water supply and drainage management moving forward.
