For a long time we have been able to take our safe, potable mains water supply for granted in this country.

However, given our burgeoning population and developments that are often in areas with fewer water resources, the mantra of reduce, reuse and recycle is now highly pertinent.

Planning conditions are often applied that limit the theoretical consumption of developments - usually by specifying appliances with lower capacity or flow rate - however this only solves part of the problem.

Reuse of water in grey water systems and recycling of rainwater in non-potable applications such as irrigation, toilet flushing and clothes washing can drastically reduce the consumption of potable water.

We assess which options are viable for each individual building and client, make pragmatic suggestions and ensure that clients can make fully informed decisions.
