• Innovative products can help reduce water consumption and energy costs in the bathroom
Climate change means changing our relationship to water: The UN estimates that global demand for water will increase by 55 percent by 2050, while the reserves of available water will decline.
Greater awareness of this vital resource for body care, showering, bathing, and flushing the toilet can significantly reduce consumption and also water bills.
Everyday water-saving tips
Briefly turning the water off when washing your hands, cleaning your teeth or shaving is a particularly effective way of reducing everyday water consumption. Taking shorter showers reduces consumption by approx. 12 litres per minute with conventional attachments. It also makes sense to repair dripping or leaking faucets and attachments promptly or even to replace them with new, water-saving variants.
Faucets and showerheads to save water and energy
Innovative and water-saving solutions are the logical choice – whether you’re planning a new bathroom or refurbishing an old one. They contribute to sustainable water use in the bathroom without reducing comfort. Washbasin faucets with AirPlus technology enrich the water with air for a full, gentle stream while also lowering water and energy costs.
The MinusFlow technology reduces water consumption of washbasin faucets and hand showers by up to 40 percent, and by up to 60 percent for showerheads.
Reducing water usage generally leads to lower energy consumption since a lot of water is heated before use. The single-lever mixers in the energy-saving FreshStart variant mean that only cold water flows when the lever is in the middle position. Hot water is only added when the user deliberately moves the handle to the left. The energy-intensive production of hot water is limited to situations where it is actually needed.
Water-saving toilet technologies
Rimless toilets with a flush volume of just 4.5 litres are really easy to clean using small amounts of water. Innovative, easy-clean surfaces such as the WonderGliss coating or the HygieneGlaze antibacterial ceramic glaze amplify this effect.
The smaller button on the actuator plates with 2-volume flushing technology offers a flushing option of just three liters. The larger water quantity should only be chosen when it is really needed.
