You probably already know that you can play a part in the water-saving action by turning off the tap as you shave or brush your teeth. If you just learned about this, it is still not too late to make a positive change. Read on to find out how you can better do so.

Other than a simple nudge on the faucet, there must be more that we can contribute in the water and environmental conservation department. And considering that a big portion of our water consumption takes place in the bathroom, it makes sense to start making improvement right there.

The Hansgrohe Group has long been known as a trailblazer in the bath industry and is also a patron in sustainable living.

When technology is done right, you are guaranteed a water-efficient bathroom experience without compromising the quality. Hansgrohe’s popular Raindance showers are a good testament: Integrated with the innovative AirPower technology means an ample supply of air is sucked in via the jet disc. Enriched with air, the water droplets become plumper, lighter and softer which creates a wonderful sense of well- being. The multi-jet model even offers a powerful stream with a noticeably relaxing effect.

Choose shower – the shorter the better

The shower vs bath debate is an age-old one. While it really boils down to the matter of personal preference, shower clearly has the edge from the environmental standpoint. For a full bath, you need at least 140 litres of water. Showering, however, consumes far less, particularly when using a Hansgrohe shower with EcoSmart technology. For a three-minute shower with the new Hansgrohe Crometta Vario Green Raindance handshower, water consumption is only 18 litres. Needless to say, spending less time in the shower helps too.

Consider bathroom products with lower flow rates

The new Hansgrohe Crometta range of showers is a great choice for another reason: the EcoSmart feature limits the water flow to six to nine litres per minute, all the while offering two types of spray (Rain and IntenseRain). Products as such does not only reduce the water consumption but also helps to cut down the amount in your water and energy bill in the long run.
