Water strategy – Replacement and Schedule

The intent is that there is a programme in place which identifies any planned refurbishments and confirms that, where relevant, the works will include upgrading high water-consuming fittings and appliances with low water-consuming equivalents.
This does not require the systematic replacement of all fittings and appliances. However, it must also include a commitment to upgrading the efficiency of existing fittings and appliances when they reach the end of their service life.

This may include specific fittings and appliances with low water consumption, or it can be based on a performance specification that these must meet, e.g. the flow rate or efficiency rating.
