Water wastage: a conservation week blog

Did you know that this week is Conservation Week for New Zealand? This week we’d like to take a moment to draw your attention to a plumbing priority few people place importance upon: water efficiency.

You may have heard of the ‘Water Efficiency Labeling Scheme’.  Essentially, it pertains to the level of water efficiency you can expect from a number of plumbing appliances before you purchase them: the better the labelled rating, the more water you save for your home and your country.

You can expect to see a water efficiency label on any of the following products:

  • clothes washing machines
  • dishwashers
  • lavatories
  • showers
  • taps
  • urinals

Why is it important to consider the water efficiency rating of your plumbing products?

No matter how big or small your plumbing project, it is important that you try your best to avoid water wastage, particularly in cities and towns that might experience temporary drought. Conserving water not only helps the environment, but it can also greatly lower your water rates (if these apply to your building), and choosing products that avoid wasting unnecessary amounts of heated water can save you hundreds and thousands on your energy bill! Whether your priorities are economical or environmental, it’s easy to see how a little strategic plumbing can play its part well in your Wellington plumbing project.

If you have a plumbing project in Wellington, we encourage you to consider the level of water efficiency your plumbing products come with before you order them. Talk to the team at PipeSpec today to see what we can do for your building to save both the environment…and your pennies!
