Saving water boils down to so much more than saving a buck, especially when one considers the startling fact that less than 1% of the Earth’s water is drinkable. What’s scarier is while that amount stays the same, our population grows. Saving water is less about saving money than sustaining the relatively scarce resource shared amongst millions. You can make a difference by following these water saving tips from ON∙TAP.
Installing faucets that use EcoSmart technology can make a difference. EcoSmart technology faucets have a spout with an aerating mechanism, which mixes air into the water as it flows out of the spout. This decreases your water consumption by up to 60%, while the bubbles created give the water the same amount of flow for that comfort feeling. Enquire at ON∙TAP about their range of EcoSmart bathroom mixers, like the Hansgrohe Talis range.
So now that you have the comfort of an EcoSmart faucet, you can trade in the comfort of a bath…occasionally. Showering can also save you up to 60% on water consumption. This is because a bathtub requires about 140 litres of water, while a 5-minute shower uses about 90. Combined with an EcoSmart faucet, imagine the saving possibilities! ON∙TAP has a variety of eco-friendly showers, like ISCA Ostia range.
Ever wondered why some toilets have two flushers? So that you can choose the length of your flush and, thus, the amount of water being used. These toilets are fitted with dual flushing mechanisms that require a gentle press. Using the shorter flush up to half the amount of water as a full-powered one. You can save water one flush at a time with ON∙TAP’s Lecico Riviera range.
