Water Saving

Water Saving in Bathrooms

Water efficiency of bathrooms and washrooms has become a crucial part of delivering a socially responsible, economically sound and energy efficient practice. At Tubs & Tiles we have extended the range of products available to help you conserve water and help the environment. Here are some tips:

  • 4 and 2.6 litres low dual flush WCs - saving up to 52%
  • Waterless urinals that reduce overall washroom consumption by 20%
  • Taps fitted with water flow regulators
  • Showers valves & heads with reduced waterflow rates
  • Non Concussive taps that stop water after a preset time saving 15%
  • Electronic taps that ensure water is only used when required
  • Flow regulators which can be added to existing taps and showers

Hansgrohe EcoSmart uses up to 60% less Water.

Hansgrohe mixers and showers, which are fitted with EcoSmart technology, require up to 60% less water than conventional products – and without any loss of comfort. Lower hot water consumption means lower energy requirements and lower costs.

  • EcoSmart showers – facts and functionality

The Raindance EcoSmart overhead and hand showers dispense only 9.5 litres of water per minute. It does not matter how high your water pressure is; a “precision O-ring” reacts flexibly to the water pressure and adjusts the water quantity. If the pressure is high, the ring makes the opening smaller. If it is low, it expands the opening.

  • EcoSmart mixers – facts and functionality

Thirteen litres of water per minute run through a conventional basin mixer. EcoSmart mixers lowers water consumption by up to 60%, to around 5 litres per minute. A special flow limitation system is combined with EcoSmart aerator which is integrated into the spout of the mixer and enriches the water while reducing flow. EcoSmart responds automatically to different water pressure and alters its shape limiting the flow, thus constantly saving drinking water. * without EcoSmart: 13 ltr/min at 3 bar

Bristan - Save Water, Save Energy, Save Money!

Included in the range is a choice of easy to use lever operated ‘eco-click’ basin mixers which feature an innovative flow regulating cartridge that works by offering a subtle resistance when the lever is at its half-flow point, helping to reduce water usage. Eco-click technology is featured in a number of Bristan’s most popular ranges including Java, Capri, Oval and Quadrato.

Flow regulators can be fitted (or retrofitted) to taps and mixers, into either the tail or spout, and on showers between a shower valve outlet connection and the shower hose or between the shower arm and the shower rose. Flow regulators are a simple and cost effective water and energy saving device which can reduce flow by 1-6 litres per minute for taps and 4-14 litres per minute for showers.

Croydex Flow Regulators & Eco Showers

Flow regulators can be added to existing bathroom and kitchen taps or shower valves and heads (excluding electric) to reduce the large volumes of water dispensed with high pressure systems. The regulators will compensate for increasing pressures whilst keeping the flow constant of water. At a pressure of 1 bar the O-ring in the core of the flow regulator begins to compress around the core of the regulator insert so that the water passageway begins to be restricted, this continues as pressure increases. Saving water, but still keep a good water pressure with a constant flow rate. Available from 2 litres to 8 litres.

The universal adaptor rings for both male and female connections mean that these products can be used on any tap or showers that have a suitable threaded outlet and, as a large amount of water used in the bathroom and kitchen is hot water the cost saving is not only in the water bill but also on energy bills as well.
