WHAT A WASTE
Every year, a typical family of three living in a household
fitted with a conventional one string plumbing system pours up to
16,000 litres of clean water straight down the drain - for no good
reason at all. Every time they turn on a hot water tap or a shower,
they wait an average of 60 seconds for the water to run hot. This
wastes approximately 1,5 decilitres of water per second.
Using hot water five times a day over the course of a year
results in a total waiting time of over one whole day.*
It's a burden not only on your pocket and your time, but also on
*The figures are based on a report
by Dr. Ing. Hugo Feurich VDI and calculated as a typical household
of three persons each wasting 15 litres of clean water on waiting
for hot water per day.
