DEVICES OF SAVING WATER
You can now buy showers and taps that enable substantial savings on water and energy, and they are much more comfortable than you might imagine.
These provide a more comfortable massage than traditional showers while saving up to 50% on water an energy. And they put an end to problems involving scale, blockages and low pressure, too.
This enables you to turn off the shower while soaping and still maintain the water temperature.
FLOW CONTROL NOZZLE
A tap nozzle that produces a heavy jet of water and bubbles, enabling 40% to 60% saving on water and energy.
This device featuring jet and shower functions facilitates washing dishes and vegetables in the sink. Saving of up to 40% on water and energy.
CISTERN WITH FLUSH COUT-OUT
The new water-saving cisterns with 3-litre partial flush and 6-litre full flush work efficiently. But if you don´t want to change your old cistern, this can easily be fitted with a flush cot-out device that does the same job.
Now electrical appliances consume less and have improved features. If you´re due for a change, choose a washing machine with a 55-litre(or under) wash, a dishwasher with a 22-litre (or under) wash and a modern water heater fitted with a mini storage device.
INDIVIDUAL WATER METER
Install an individual water meter. The property law recognizes your right to pay for what you use only. Get the reductions you deserve for using water responsibly.
YOU KNOW THAT WEATERING GARDENS AND FILLING POOLS WITH DRINKING WATER IS TOTALLY PROHIBITED?
HERE ARE SOME PRACTICAL TIPS FOR SAVING WATER WITH YOUT ALTERNATIVE GARDEN AND POOL SYSTEMS.
Gardens and Plants
AUTOMATIC, DROP-BY-DROP AND MULTI-DROP IRRIGATION
Plants and gardens are best cared for by time-control, drop-by-drop or multi-drop systems. This last method is an underground system comprising a porous rubber tube that constantly moistens the ground. The soil absorbs the moisture released from the tube, preventing evaporation by sun or wind. Applied in agriculture, football grounds, golf courses, parks and gardens, etc., the multi-drop system obtains savings of up to 90%.
These reduce the need for watering by over 20%, increasing salt and mineral solubility and improving soil moisturization. They enhance plant growth by eliminating the mineral deposits that block the pores in the roots and keeping clean the entire irrigation system: tubes, droppers, sprinklers, etc.
The use of chlorine in pools is dying out. New technologies provide improved disinfection and longer-lasting hygienic conditions, plus a considerable reduction in chemical products and a huge saving on water clean out of season.
Use a 5g/litre salt concentrate- the equivalent of human tears- to generate chlorine in a closed circuit. This prevents eye and skin irritation. The water has a useful life is over 5 years and refilling will only be required to compensate loss through evaporation and filter cleaning.
The water is disinfected by a UV-ray lamp system. This improves the level of disinfection and keeps the water healthier for longer.
