Save water without a touch 26.03.2018 — Blog

Recent events have proven just how vulnerable we are when supply of something we take for granted becomes limited. In our part of the world, water scarcity is perhaps not a pressing matter, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't care. Being economic regarding our domestic water consumption is still an important part of any ECO-conscious mindset. In Norway,for example, people use mind-blowing 230 liters of water every day – more than twice as much as Denmark.

There are many ways to reduce your water consumption without doing huge changes to your life. However, one of the most effective ways will change your life forever: Installing touchless faucets. In addition to being both practical and hygienic, studies have shown that touchless faucets could reduce your water wastage with as much as 50 per cent!

Water Saving Tip:

Make sure the dishwasher is full before start. Note that modern dishwashers use very little water compared to dishwashing by hand. With a Smart dishwasher valve, even more water is saved every day.

You have probably encountered such faucets in public restrooms, but the number of households in Nordic countries embracing this ECO-smart solution are growing rapidly. As a water saving measure touchless faucets really make a difference – just by preventing the water to run directly from faucet to drain. Adjusting temperature is as easy as for conventional faucets. When, for instance, washing your hands, the water flow stops automatically when applying soap or scrubbing. Hence, water runs only when you need it, reducing the waste to a minimum. And completely without a touch.

Water Saving Tip:

Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth, applying shampoo and conditioner in the shower, and when applying soap when washing hands.
