Building Water Conservation Tips:

  • Keep the plumbing system in good working condition
  • Recycle water from steam boilers as boiling feedwater or use them to flush toilets or for cleaning/mopping floors.
  • Install meters on areas with high water consumption to allow determination of any reduction in consumption when water reduction programs are put in place.
  • Install shut-off on water hoses or low volume/high pressure nozzles (LVHP) or flow constrictors on faucets and showers to save on water
  • Install water catchment basins on downspouts and air conditioning systems and use the residual water to water plants
  • Close water gate valves when not in use (e.g., Saturdays and Sundays)
  • Give only the right amount of water to customers who request for water and use the residual water to water plants or to clean building surroundings or floors.
  • Post water conservation tips on conspicuous places within the building
  • Immediately report any unabated leaks to your water concessionaire
