Concerned with restaurant water usage and associated costs? All restaurant owners want to keep margins low and profits high, and cutting back on utility bills such as water can make a big difference. Of course, water use is an integral part of the restaurant kitchen and overall functionality, but these water saving tips can help.
Consider installing foot operated pedal sinks in the kitchen and motion detectors on sinks in your restrooms. Upgrade to ENERGY STAR rated equipment if possible. When washing dishes, use a high temp dishwasher and pre-soak dishes in hot water. Train your staff to only wash fully loaded racks of dishes, and to thaw food in the fridge rather than under running water. Train your customers to ask for water when they want it – a lot of drinking water goes down the drain! Lastly, make sure to repair leaks immediately because they are costing you.
Following these tips should bring additional conservation to your restaurant water usage amounts!
