We often take water for granted, not realizing that it’s a valuable resource and should be conserved as much as possible. In commercial environments, water is primarily used in landscaping, hands washing, and kitchen use. At ZIS, we have several solutions that help the enterprise cut down the Water and Sewer bill by a considerable amount. Here is how we do it:
RAIN WATER TANKS
The rainy season varies in months and amounts of rain depending on the geography concerned, and during these months we see rain causing havoc on the streets and freeways. But where does all that water go? Well, with gutters, drains, and rivers, it is all flushed out to sea. While the residents of California for example need to pump in water from the San Joaquin valley, the Owens valley and the Colorado River hundreds of miles away to meet their needs. With Rain Water Tank solutions, ZIS can implement systems that collect this water and make it available for your local use and offset your bills in the process.
How can a roof help with water efficiency? Once we’ve established rain collection tanks, we have to think about all the water absorbed by the roof that won’t be running into the gutters. By using an all metal roof, we can increase our water collection by 20%. In addition, metal roofs have no petrochemicals like composite roofs, so we don’t have to worry about such materials in our collected rainwater. ZIS can install roofs that fit your green strategies and help your business become functional in all aspects. Think that changing r roof is a major undertaking? Not if you are installing solar panels! It's a one-time process to consider and allows you to hit two birds with one stone. (Hopefully the birds will fly away unharmed)
WATER EFFICIENT APPLIANCES
The simplest way to save water is to use machines that are water efficient. Dishwashers and washing machines come in models that use less water, and many rebates exist to subsidize the cost. Also, about 30% of our in house water use is used to flush toilets. By picking the right appliances and toilets, you can reduce your bill and also get to do it for free with all the available incentives. ZIS will tell you how.
