Water is an expensive commodityWater is an expensive and vital resource. It is costing Irish companies huge amounts of money and being wasted in large quantities.

However, hot water costs can exceed €10 per 1000 litres, due to the energy consumed in the heating. For this reason companies need to consider improved water efficiency. Wasted water is wasted money.
