Water is a precious resource. We should always use it wisely because it's not as abundant as you might think.
Using water, especially hot water, uses energy and increases emissions of greenhouse gases which contribute to climate change. Even the water companies in the UK promote water conservation because with the population continuing to rise there is an ever-increasing demand which can only be satisfied by more efficient use of existing resources or construction of new expensive reservoirs with potentially negative environmental impacts,
Did you know the following?
- The average person in England and Wales uses 150 litres of water a day. By 2020 the demand for water could increase by 800 million extra litres of water a day.
- Most of this water is used for washing and toilet flushing, but it also includes drinking, cooking, car washing and watering the garden. We use almost 50 percent more water than 25 years ago, partly because of power showers and household appliances.
- Using water in our homes contributes around 35 million tonnes of greenhouse gases a year. The average family uses 500 litres of water a day (due to some communal use of appliances). That’s equal to 1.5 tonnes of greenhouse gases a year.
- Future Water, the Government’s water strategy for England, outlines a vision for the average person to reduce the water they use by 20 litres per day to 130 litres a day.
Rodin have been promoting a range of water-saving products for almost 20 years. These are aimed primarily at commercial washroom and shower facilities where significant volumes of water can be used on a daily basis.
The range includes waterless urinals from Falcon Waterfree along with the replacement Falcon Velocity cartridges and accessories.
In addition, there are water-saving shower systems that have been used by major gym chains in the UK for a number of years These can be configured for either concealed or exposed applications and with either wall-mounted (fixed) showerheads or handheld shower heads that are connected to flexible hoses. Commercial installations are ideal as they typically have higher water pressures within their system. Water saving can only be achieved if there is at least 1 bar of water pressure at the showerhead. All shower valves come with TMV3 certification.
The range also contains water-saving taps and long-life aerators which are a cost-effective way to start saving water immediately with a relatively modest initial outlay.
The water-saving products are not only good for the environment but they have fast payback times which means you can see the financial benefit in a matter of months rather than years.
