3 litre toilets have become the norm in residential buildings across Canada. The flush is strong, and the savings are undeniable.
Building Up can cut your building’s water costs up to 50% and will create a payback as quick as 10 months.
We provide a free water audit to assess your building’s opportunity for savings, and offer the option to pay for the retrofit over time through the utility savings.
With water rates rising in Toronto at 8% per year, reducing consumption has become a priority. On average, our customers have cut utility expenses by over $150/suite/year following the retrofit. This equates to a payback of under 2 years.
Our crews install 3 litre toilets, as well as tamperproof 1.5 GPM showerheads, 1.5 GPM kitchen aerators and 1.0 GPM bathroom aerators.
The average annual return on investment is +50%. Your building, whether it be private, non-profit or a co-operative, will see a payback of 1-3 years and will see immediate benefits on your bills without sacrificing functionality.
Building Up will provide a free water audit for any building to assess the potential for savings. You will receive a report that outlines conservative savings projections, estimated payback periods and outlines project details.
You can then present this report to your team and make an educated decision without putting any money down.
Our crews work through 30 suites daily and prioritize tenant satisfaction. This is a non-intrusive intervention and we will be in and out of your property without hassle. We also provide a unit-by-unit checklist outlining notes, pest issues, or any other matters your superintendent should be aware of.
During the first four months of 2015 the average water consumption at 25 Leonard was about 40 m3 per day and after you replaced the toilets at the end of April the usage dropped to approximately 15 m3 per day. The cash savings goes straight to our bottom line.
