World Water Day is an annual event organised by UN Water to help raise awareness about the importance of everyone having access to clean, safe water. The main aim is to encourage nations and people to get behind the sustainable development goal to achieve water for all by 2030. Billions of people are currently living without access to safe water.
In the UK all of these issues may seem very far way, but the truth is that the pressure on water is increasing, proven by the UK’s Environment Agency report that England could suffer major water shortages by 2030. The demand for water is increasing in the UK, but the supply is not. This means that we should be treating water as a precious resource and we should all be taking steps to reduce our water usage.

How are Citron Hygiene supporting World Water Day?
Citron Hygiene are committed to helping businesses to reduce water usage as part of our WWE project. This project aims to achieve greater sustainability across the key areas of Waste, Water and Energy to ultimately reduce the environmental impact of companies.
One of the main issues with wasting water is that businesses may not even know they have a problem. Leaks, poorly planned water systems and faulty washroom services can all contribute to increased water bills, but these issues are not always easy to spot, especially if the problem is long term. If you don’t know there’s a problem how can you take action to rectify it?
This is the problem that Citron Hygiene want to help businesses solve and that’s why we’re supporting World Water Day by offering a FREE water saving consultation for your business.

Water saving solutions for businesses
The majority of the water consumed in the UK is used by businesses. This means that companies have a responsibility to take steps to reduce water usage. There a number of water saving solutions that can be installed to help save water.
Smart Water Meter
Using water is unavoidable, but it can be very difficult to ascertain if your business is using water efficiently. Water systems are often very complex, leaving the water bill as the sole water usage reference point. This doesn’t actually tell you very much at all about the way water is being used in your business. For example, there could be long term leaks or malfunctions that have been leading to increased water usage for years’ that you don’t even know about!
The answer to this problem is to fit a Smart Water Meter, which will monitor water usage patterns and provide real time water usage data that can be viewed in a cohesive web-based report. If you can work out exactly where and how water is being used across your business, then you can identify areas where water can be saved helping to reduce costs.
Take control of your water usage with the Smart Water Meter from Citron Hygiene and you could save up to 90% on your water bills.
Save water through flushing
Over 65% of water usage in an average office is used for flushing. This means that installing intelligent water saving solutions in your toilets and urinals really can have a positive impact on significantly reducing water usage.
Modern toilets should adhere to regulations on how much water is used in flushing, but older toilets can use up to 30 litres of water per flush! Replacing all your toilets with modern alternatives is very expensive and can cause a lot of disruption in a business. The good news is there is another solution.
The Actiflush water-saving system saves up to 10 litres of water per flush. The Actiflush system can be easily fitted to traditional toilets to convert them into variable flushing systems, allowing users to only use the amount of water that’s necessary. This can dramatically reduce water usage in your washrooms and consequently you can save money on your water bills.
Flushing water though urinals is a popular, but ineffective cleaning method that wastes a substantial amount of water. Fitting the Actiflow System in your urinals will significantly reduce water usage. The Actiflow urinal cartridge contains billions of friendly bacteria that kill the bad odours caused by bacteria and penetrate uric salts to make them soluble. The Citron Water Management System will then flush the uric salts away at controlled intervals. This significantly improves water usage efficiency, saving your business money as well as presenting a more hygienic washroom environment for users.
