WATER METER READINGS & CHECKING FOR LEAKS

Did you know that 1 L of water per minute flowing through 3 to 4 leaking cisterns will add up to ca. € 2 000 cost of water per year? To avoid such unnecessary costs, we will carry out quarterly water meter readings. Should we not see the water meter stationary in the course of a second reading, we will check this in the next quarter, by means of a comprehensive leakage test under a contract. In the course of this, all the withdrawal points in the existing property will be checked and blocked.

 

Services:

  • Quarterly water meter reading
  • Video documentation of each water meter reading
  • Leakage test in the third quarter (under contract)
  • Annual water consumption statistics

STORING OF GARDEN WATER HOSES OVER WINTER

It is important, before winter sets in, to check (under contract) that no water remains in garden water hoses before storing for winter. For maximum protection from frost, a compressor will be used to blow the hoses empty – this prevents icing up or, at worst, even bursting in freezing temperatures. The high consequential cost of damages is thus avoidable.

CHECKING DRINKING WATER FOR LEGIONELLA

We are blessed with excellent qualities of drinking water in Austria. It is nevertheless advisable to check drinking water for bacteria/chemicals in properties supplied from a central water treatment plant or having a common hot water supply system. Together with the accredited testing and monitoring body AGES we will guarantee meticulous inspection of your drinking water.

FIRE PROTECTION OFFICERS

You are managing buildings of 2 000 m2 area and more and have no technical fire protection systems? Or do you have a total living area of more than 1 000 m2, with technical fire protection systems?
