Since this announcement in January 2022, major water companies have been developing plans to upgrade the UKs water supply and reduce current usage from 150 litres per person per day to 110.  

Groundbreaker will be a major contributor to this new infrastructure.  Surface mounted metering and flow reduction are integral parts of major water companies new plans, and Groundbreaker’s unique products are an essential part of the new style infrastructure.

If our water usage patterns don’t change, the UK will have an ongoing water deficit of 4,000 Megalitres per day by 2050.  Some water companies are introducing a new strategy to manage the ever-growing demand caused by increasing population and new developments - ‘water neutrality’.

The continued growth in population and housebuilding means that reductions in leakage and domestic consumption have not been enough to offset the increasing demand.  In all regions, even in our traditionally wetter regions water companies in response to OFWAT guidance, will be introducing Environmental Incentive Schemes in the near future.

The search for sustainable solutions that help to drive forward the Net Zero Carbon future of heating systems here in the UK has moved on to the use of sustainable water treatment products that will ensure clean water flowing through traditional and renewable heating systems as well as offering a raft of other benefits that will help specifiers, installers and householders.

Social housing providers know the importance of clean circulating water in heating systems in their homes and have worked with liquid water treatment products for decades to achieve this. But with the release of new solid chemicals from DosaFil they have a far more environmentally friendly, easier to install and top up and easier to transport option.

George Clarke takes a scary look at the future

I’m sitting writing this in my shorts. Nothing else, just my shorts.

Why am I sharing this awful vision with you? Because at the time of writing it’s very hot. I’m at my desk at home and the temperature is 30 degrees. It’s been like this for days.

But, this isn’t just a random spike in temperatures for the UK. The entire planet experienced its hottest June ever on record, followed by the hottest July on record, breaking previous records by huge margins.

If our water usage patterns don’t change, the UK will have an ongoing water deficit of 4,000 Megalitres per day by 2050.  Reductions in leakage and domestic consumption are the two primary strands of water conservation targeted by Defra and the water companies.  

Some areas of England are already restricting future development unless ‘water neutrality’ can be demonstrated. This requires both existing and new properties to reduce per capita consumption (PCC) to the extent that overall water usage levels do not increase.
