Water supply for business utilities


What is a business water supplier?


In 2017, England joined Scotland in opening its business water market for competition, allowing for better pricing, customer service and environmentally-friendly services. This move enabled businesses to shop around for the best water supplier, rather than being forced to rely on a default regional supplier.

Business water suppliers – also known as a commercial water suppliers – provide water and wastewater management services to a broad range of organisations from all sectors and industries. This includes commercial businesses, not-for-profits and public sector institutions.

Choosing the right business water supplier might feel like a daunting task, but at Everflow we are here to make utilities simple.

What are the main things to consider when choosing a business water supplier?

Almost half of businesses are unaware they can shop around for water, even though it’s possible to make substantial savings by switching supplier.

If your organisation is looking to compare providers for the first time, the best place to start is by applying for quotes online and reading reviews on sites such as Trustpilot. Customer service is key when selecting a water supplier. That’s why we recommend taking the time to read what previous customers have to say on independent review websites.

At Everflow we are proud to have received thousands of positive TrustPilot reviews from satisfied customers around the UK. 

It might be tempting to only focus on price, but you should also consider other factors that could benefit your business. For example, do any providers offer any extra services or solutions to make the management of business utilities easier?

It’s also important to check the environmental stance of the supplier you’re switching to. Choosing a green supply chain will reduce your company’s environmental impact.

Conserving water can both reduce your business’s environmental impact and cut your costs in the long run. Read our water efficiency guide for more information on the best ways to conserve water.

Water meters allow businesses to measure their water usage accurately, which is essential when trying to manage overheads effectively and also conserve water. Yet most businesses in the UK rarely check what they consume and do little to implement water saving measures.

Typically, it is recommended that meter readings are taken every six months but it is often advantageous to take readings and submit them more frequently in order to ensure the accuracy of bills and even identify any water leaks as soon as they occur.

Headlines around the climate emergency and rising energy costs may not appear to be linked to the water market at first glance. But it’s worth noting that the production of clean water and waste water does generate a sizeable portion of the UK’s total industrial emissions.

To tackle this, the UK’s wholesale water companies have agreed to provide a net zero water supply by 2030. Read more on our blog here.

Choosing the right supplier is an important decision, and one which impacts your utility costs for the future. Consider not just pricing but also the support you receive from a supplier to improve water efficiency and meet any relevant regulations. Customer service is another important consideration, so take the time to check reviews from existing customers.
