We discuss water savings strategies for older properties in the real estate industry. The speaker mentions evaluating properties from the 70s and 80s to determine if implementing low-flow fixtures would be cost-effective for long-term savings. Key areas for water savings identified are shower heads, sinks, and toilets. Monitoring water consumption in real-time and addressing issues like leaks are emphasized to reduce costs. The panel also touches on the challenges of accurately metering water at a unit level and the importance of comparing usage to similar properties. While there is a mention of stricter regulations in some regions, the discussion primarily focuses on the practical aspects of implementing water-saving initiatives in older properties for financial and environmental benefits.
