Water saving

When we moved to our new location, one simple aspect of our green building retrofit was replacing the standard toilet cisterns with dual flush cisterns with a 3 star WELS rating, and rectifying leaks. 

Despite having twice as many staff as the previous tenant, all staff using water, and more than half the staff cycling to work (requiring showers), we have cut water consumption by over 90%

Have a look at the column chart of water consumption in the invoice below (we moved in on 1 July 2012).

Surprisingly, we find significant water leaks (including leaking toilet cisterns which are not always obvious) in most buildings we survey.
