CASE STUDY - DETROIT, MICHIGAN
Toilet Replacement Service has reduced water/sewer bills by 61%
The multifamily property in Detroit, Michigan was built in 1976 and has a total of 280 apartment units. The property still had the original and inefficient plumbing fixtures – toilets, showerheads and aerators.
In 2016/2017, the water/sewer bills averaged $14,678 per month and the average monthly water consumption was over 1.38 million gallons.
eConserve surveyed the property and proposed a solution to reduce water consumption and lower bills.
In January 2018, eConserve implemented its Toilet Replacement Service. This water conservation service replaces toilets with an efficient Niagara Stealth toilet as well as fixes all drips and leaks and installs water-saving products to sinks and showers in every unit.
In the four months after the completion of the water conservation solution, the results have been amazing.
The average monthly water consumption dropped from 1.38 million gallons of water to 509,000 gallons of water, saving 871,000 gallons of water for the environment.
The average water/sewer expense dropped from $14,678 per month to $5,774 per month, a 61% financial savings.
