SMART Label awards recognize products or services that bring innovation to the hospitality industry through their functionality, technology, environmental sustainability, or ethical or social implications.
T&S Brass created the water audit as a tool to help customers recognize their overall water usage and identify opportunities to save resources and increase sustainability.
During a water audit, a T&S representative takes careful measurements of the flow rates of faucets, pre-rinse units and other water fittings and uses the data to provide a personalized report on water use, as well as corresponding sewer and energy costs.
The report also recommends areas where product replacement or upgrades can offer significant cost savings. In one instance, a hotel replaced four pre-rinse units after a T&S water audit, resulting in water savings of more than 102,000 liters per year.
“We’re honored to be recognized for this innovative tool,” said Ken Gallagher, T&S’ vice president of global sales. “The T&S water audit is an eye-opening experience for our customers and one we believe is helping improve both sustainability and financial well-being in the hospitality industry.”
