In the precious seconds it takes from the moment you turn on your tap, till the tap produces warm or hot water, you could be wasting 200ml of water per second. That equates to a massive 60 litres of wasted water per day with the simple act of washing your hands.
Your other daily activities such as waiting for a hot shower, doing laundry and washing dishes with hot water increase this amount by an average of 20 to 30 litres per day.
Using unique hydrostatic diverter valve technology, WaterMiser can save a three member family anywhere from 20,000 to 45,000 litres of potable water annually.
The general areas within the house of highest wastage include the shower and kitchen basins. WaterMiser ensures that hot water is available almost immediately at the desired outlets. WaterMiser continuously circulates the water in the pipe ensuring that hot water comes out the hot tap almost instantly. This is done automatically, without any pumps or electronic switches.
In Cape Town alone, an estimated 837,000 households have geysers supplying hot water to a kitchen and a shower. With this many households, the total water wastage can easily reach over 50 million litres of water per day. If this problem was addressed in each household, Cape Town could see conservation of over a billion litres of water per month!
