Surefire tips to make your bathroom more sustainable
Gaurav Malhotra, Managing Director, Hansgrohe India outlines some key points for designing and building more water-efficient, intelligent and elegant bathrooms:
Save water with EcoSmart Showers
Installing modern shower products reduces water and energy costs and saves valuable resources. The inner workings of the shower make a big difference: EcoSmart technology automatically limits the water flow to around 6 to 9 liters per minute. Since this means less water needs to be heated, the EcoSmart also helps you save energy. And when you use less fresh water, you pay less sewage charges, too. The most eco-friendly shower available at Hansgrohe is the Chrometa 85 Green Hand Shower. It consumes hardly 6 liters of water per minute (in 3 times). As it happens, an EcoSmart shower with a range of jets will pamper you to the fullest, despite the low flow rate.
Choose Stylish Faucets With Modern Operating Technologies
The adoption of modern technologies allows you to shut off the water at the touch of a button – with selectivity. A convenient selection tap enables you to decide for yourself when the water should be turned on and off in your bathroom and kitchen. Investing in a new, frequently used product like a faucet will pay for itself very quickly. And the environment will certainly thank you for your efforts. It encourages you to save water on a daily basis – and makes using products just as fun as ever at the touch of a button. They make your wash basin and your sink ultra modern.
flush away with low-flow wc
The WC flush could be the biggest water hog in your home! Recent technological and design advances have allowed toilets to use 1.28 gallons or less per flush while still providing similar or better performance. If you have a high-gallon-per-flush WC, it’s time to replace it with one that works more efficiently. Energy-efficient toilets use the velocity of the water to remove waste, rather than the volume of the water. They can reduce toilet water use by 20 to 60 percent, or save about 13,000 gallons per year. An average household can save up to Rs 10,000 per year on its water bill.
Create an Energy-Efficient Bathroom
When buying a new one, pay attention to its energy efficiency and water consumption. The same applies to faucets as do shower heads, washing machines, or dishwashers: older models usually consume significantly more water than newer models and need to be taken to a recycling center. Which Appliances Save the Largest Amount of Water and Energy? Make sure you choose an eco-friendly model in class A to A plus plus plus.
Speaking of efficiency, never run the washing machine and dishwasher half empty. Use the machine only when fully loaded. More often than not, a pre-rinse or pre-wash program is not necessary. For lightly soiled laundry/dishes, many machines have an eco-friendly short wash cycle.
Check for frequent drips and water leaks in the bathroom
Check your toilets for leaks at least once a year — this can save a lot of water. But sometimes the leak isn’t that obvious! A drop in water pressure is an additional sign of a leak. You’ll often see this drop off when you’re taking a shower or filling a bathtub. A great way to test is to add food coloring to your toilet tank. If it seeps into the bowl without flushing, there is a leak that needs to be fixed. One drip every second adds up to five gallons a day!
