Water-Use Audits Can Help Managers Focus on Upgrades

By understand evolving water use – and waste – in facilities, managers can fine-tune renovations that deliver benefits.

As prices rise for water and demand grows, water conservation continues to be a high priority in commercial and institutional facilities. In these settings, maintenance and engineering managers can have a positive impact by targeting waste in restrooms and plumbing systems through upgrades and enhanced maintenance.

In planning new construction and facility upgrades, managers can have a similar impact by carefully specifying a new generation of water-conserving products. In both cases, managers can expect to recover the additional cost of the fixtures through savings in water costs in less than two years.

Tech Tip
Retiring a Task ID in FaciliWorks 8i

If you no longer use a specific Task ID and would like to remove its relationship from one or more assets, please don't delete the Task ID from FaciliWorks. The Task ID is part of historical records and deleting it may cause database corruption that renders your FaciliWorks program unusable.
 
Instead, to retire a task, navigate to the task record and click the Task Link button at the bottom of the Task tab. The Update Task Link window appears and lists the assets to which this task is linked. Make note of all of these Asset IDs.
 
Navigate to the Assets -> PM Task tab -> Task sub-tab for each of the asset records. In the Task sub-tab, locate the Task ID that you want to disassociate from the asset and then click the Delete button. You are not deleting the task record from the database, but merely removing the association between that Task ID and the Asset ID.
 
The result is that you will no longer be prompted to create a PM for that specific Task ID/Asset ID relationship and the history (before deleting the relationship) remains intact and can continue to be accessed via the reports area.
 
We encourage you to explore the additional capabilities of your FaciliWorks software and as always, keep an eye out for future Tech Tips.
