Bathroom Renovations, Remodelling & Refurbishment
The average bathroom uses a significant amount of water. There are a few simple things you may wish to consider when designing your new bathroom that will reduce water consumption for your household making your bathroom more Eco friendly.
The average time spent taking a shower is 7 minutes. This uses a large volume of water in a fairly short space of time. You can tackle this issue by installing a low flow shower which will reduce the amount of water used by up to 60 percent.
Setting a timer when having a shower may sound strange but there are many appearing on the market with the specific purpose of reducing time people spend when having a shower therefore resulting in a reduction in water used.
The dual flush basin and WC re-uses water from the basin to fill the cistern therefore reducing water use by up to 25 percent. If this is not an option look at the amount of water the WC you have chosen actually uses to flush. Many older designs use 10 litres with newer models using as little as 2 litres. If you do have an older WC consider using a device to reduce the among of water used such as those which control the flush handle.
Water softeners are a good way of making clogged up water system more efficient so this might be something worth installing during your renovation project.
If you are thinking of a new build, extension or renovation project which incorporates a remodel or creation of a new bathroom consider implementing some of these ideas.
