Triton Showers has created a water and energy savings calculator to help customers understand and reduce their consumption.
The calculator is also aimed at those working in the house-building, specification and plumbing industries so everyone is aware of their usage and the steps to reduce any excess consumption.
Tina Simpson, marketing director at Triton Showers, said: “We are committed to creating resources that will help everyone, from installers and specifiers, through to merchants and housing associations. Whether it’s in the form of a calculator, which provides expert advice, or manufacturing intelligent water heating technology and electric showers, we are constantly reviewing our offering to limit water waste and lower energy consumption.
“One of the biggest challenges we face as an industry is facilitating change from both sides. Alongside delivering increasingly sustainable solutions, we must work to educate the wider population. The recent UN survey found two-thirds of people think climate change is a global emergency, which shows the level of appetite there is for change among the general public.”
Tina concludes: “As with any significant change in the construction industry, there are a number of determining factors. Government policy and regulations are key, but manufacturers have a really important role to play, too. Not just in terms of providing the latest products to be put into homes, but in nurturing impactful behavioural changes among consumers.”
Triton has also suggested that end-users could make small changes to their bathroom that could save them tonnes of water. For example, an average family could save 46,720 bottles of water annually simply by installing a flow regulator into a standard mixer valve.
