Last week another regional hosepipe ban was announced in the UK, by South East Water.
Glynn Williams, the UK country director at Grundfos, said: “Hosepipe bans only scratch the surface in tackling the longstanding issue of water scarcity. To conserve our dwindling water supplies effectively, we must invest in smarter technologies that will empower people to optimise their water use.
“Digital solutions – from intelligent, demand-driven distribution systems to remote monitoring and pump control solutions – can enable communities and businesses to manage this precious resource more efficiently and equitably.
“Summer droughts and water shortages aren’t going anywhere. Swapping sticking-plaster fixes like hosepipe bans for smarter, long-term solutions that reduce water waste will save energy and money while also critically safeguarding our water supplies.”
