Water conservation: Electronic taps are usually designed with a low flow rate, an aerator in the spout and system or materials that prevent leakage. For instance, while traditional basin taps pour between 10 and 15 litres per minute, sensor taps would not use more than 6 litres. Bear in mind that a dripping tap can waste between 300 ml and 1 litre per hour.
Energy saving in the long term:
Each sensor tap requires 6, 9 or 12 volts, depending on the brand. This expense is unavoidable, whether hardwired or battery operated. Nonetheless, e-taps can make a difference during activation. Selecting the preferred flow and temperature every time a traditional faucet is activated wastes energy, among other things.
Salvaged from an early school renovation, these doors have travelled to Paul Dowsett’s home, our previous office, and now finally resting in our current office – after being relocated twice. Did we mention they’re still going strong?
Not only does cycling improve one’s mental health but also uses minimal fossil fuels and is a pollution-free mode of transport. Bikes reduce the need to build, service and dispose of cars as well.
