Whether you’re a property manager, building owner or tenant, the benefits of conducting a plumbing audit are many…

A plumbing audit offers a comprehensive assessment of a building’s water system and infrastructure by delving deep into the inner workings of it, to identify potential weaknesses and problems, while also proposing solutions to help prolong the integrity of the system.


Long-term solution vs quick-fix – To maximize efficiency and ensure system longevity, plumbing audits delve deeper into the inner workings of a building’s water distribution and management, identifying more than just visible issues. By addressing these root causes, they can offer solutions that are sustainable and that can help prolong the integrity of a building’s plumbing system.

A proactive approach – Plumbing audits can help identify potential weaknesses before they become problems, preventing wastage, potential disruptions and costly repairs. If plumbing maintenance is applied proactively, it can save time, money and valuable resources.

Water-saving and sustainability – Maintaining a forward-thinking focus on water management solutions will help reduce water consumption, promote sustainability and align with the increasing demand for environmentally responsible practices.


Analysing the blueprint – A comprehensive analysis of a building’s blueprint can offer valuable insight into the design, unique characteristics and overall functionality of the building’s water management system (i.e. its layout, plumbing infrastructure and water supply systems).

Identifying weak spots – Auditors will meticulously examine every aspect of a building’s plumbing system during an audit, including pipes, fixtures, water heaters, rainwater capturing and irrigation systems. The goal is to identify anything that could undermine the integrity of the system and cause long-term or short-term problems. Areas that could compromise the system’s efficiency include weaknesses in materials, potential leaks, inadequate insulation or outdated components.

Providing innovative solutions – One of the most significant benefits of a plumbing audit is the ability for auditors to leverage their expertise and knowledge of best practices and the latest technologies to suggest improvements that can enhance water-saving capabilities and overall performance. Depending on the results of an audit and the requirements and goals for a building’s water management, solutions may include the installation of low-flow fixtures, rainwater harvesting systems or the integration of smart technologies.
