There are many good reasons to reduce water usage and cut down on water that is wasted. These include reducing your bills, helping the environment and complying with a series of building regulations that exist.
On average a four person household uses around 165 litres per person per day (Consumer Council for Water), with us drinking just 2 litres of that total. Adopting practical ways to reduce water usage has become very fashionable in recent years, and cutting down doesn’t mean it has to affect your daily routine.
Here at Trading Depot we offer a number of products that are designed to help reduce water consumption and below is a closer look at our favourite five:
Water Saving Products Available From Trading Depot
1) Bristan Java Basin Mixer with Eco Clicker- J EBAS C
The Java Eco Basin mixer with clicker waste has a modern and stylish design that will fit into any bathroom design. The eco-click water saving feature offers a subtle resistance as it reaches half of its flow capability.
For an increased flow rate the eco-click feature can be overridden. It is also fitted with an aerator flow straightener for a softer non-splashing flow.
2) Mira Agile S EV Eco Mixer Shower – 1.1736.400
The thermostatic temperature stability keeps the showering safe for all the family whilst a revolutionary new installation system with 50mm pipe centres allows for a quick and easy installation.
3) Ideal Standard Alto Ecotherm Shower (High pressure – A4741AA/Low pressure – A4999AA)
The Ideal Standard Alto Ecotherm shower is a great shower choice if you are looking for a modern shower that will also help you save water.
This model comes with an Eco button that reduces the amount of water dispersed whilst still maintaining a luxurious showering experience. The shower kit that is supplied with this model is also fitted with an 8 lpm flow regulator, which complies with part G of the Building regulations.
4) Geberit Hytronic 87 & 88 range
The water saver program on the Geberit Hyteronic 87 & 88 range is a cleverly designed feature that activates the flow of water when an object (hands) are detected by the sensor, and will then switch off the flow instantly when the hands are removed.
The taps come with 5 different settings that can help suit the need of any bathroom. These settings include an interval setting, a delayed switch off and a timed auto switch off for allowing you to clean the tap with the water flow being activated.

5) Roca The Gap Eco Close Coupled Cistern – 34147C000
The toilet is one of the main culprits when it comes to water usage in the house, with roughly 30% of the average domestic consumption being used for flushing.
Another contributor is leaking cisterns. The Roca the Gap Eco close cistern is a great water saving option as it uses less water than a standard cistern whiles still offering a sufficient flush.
