Water Saving Solutions
You can now reduce your shower water consumption without reducing your time in the shower. The average shower uses 12 litres of water per minute but SONAS Alita exposed showers are supplied with optional 6 litre per minute flow restrictors halving the amount of water used during a shower.
Unlike traditional basin mixers, the new Alita and Luta taps have pre-fitted aerators. This is a small part that produces a gentle, air infused splash-free water flow. When integrated into the spout this technology reduces your water usage by up to 58%, saving water every time you turn the tap on.
New SONAS PEÑA and VIA water-saving toilets are engineered to use less water than regular 6/4 litre flush toilets. These low volume dual flush toilets are operating on 4/2.6L of water.
SONAS products used to reduce bathroom water consumption by 100,000 litres include:
- PEÑA and VIA Toilets: 4/2.6 l/low flush
- ALITA or LUTA Taps: 5 litre/min flow restrictor
- LOTUS 1700×700 Bath: 135 litre capacity
- ALITA Shower: with the 6 litre/min flow restrictor. This is available in the ALITA Rain and Bar Valve Kits
