In today’s world it is more important than ever for each individual to play their part in keeping our planet as green as possible, us included.

As a manufacturer, we realise the role we play in assisting our customers to create a healthy and sustainably built environment for future generations. We want to play a part in your future, and in order to do so, it’s important that we take the right steps to be more conscious of our impact on the environment. This includes the products we manufacture and how we live during our everyday working lives.

With climate change being one of the most topical challenges faced globally, the time to act is now. As temperatures increase and sea levels continue to rise, water is becoming less of a guaranteed resource. We often feel these effects when the Irish experience a very rare few weeks of sunshine and high temperatures, not long afterward, the nation is notified of water caps to ensure preservation.

In order to make any real difference, change is essential. During the design phase of our latest range of Eirine kitchen taps, water saving was at the top of our list. What can we do to help save water in the kitchen?

Introducing Flow Regulators: What is a Tap Aerator?

Each tap in our latest range features an aerator; a small attachment that is fitted inside of the spout. The holes incorporated into the design of aerators separates the water into different streams, allowing air to mix with the water, and increasing the pressure while reducing the amount of water needed. An aerator can also help to save water by providing the sensation that a tap is delivering more water than it actually is.

An aerator doesn’t reduce the water pressure, meaning most people wouldn’t even notice a difference in the amount of water flowing, yet benefit from the water efficiency. Of course, the most important water-saving technique a homeowner can use is turning off taps when not in use.

Aerators attach to the spout of your tap very easily, making them simple to install and swap out.

Future of Water Efficiency

Whilst an aerator is not essential, and may not be something homeowners are aware of, they soon will be.

Water efficiency labeling for tapware is soon to be introduced by the European Commission, rating the efficiency level from 1st to 5th class. A number of countries already have this procedure in place such as Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

By introducing water efficiency labelling there are large expected savings on both energy and water consumption. As an ISO 14001-certified company, we are always on board for change to help better the state of our planet. Now is the time for action in order to ensure a future for generations to come.
