Po­ten­tial sav­ings on wa­ter wastage

Townsville Bulletin - - Business -

THERE are big wa­ter sav­ings to be made if drought-stricken Aus­tralians use more ef­fi­cient toi­lets, says bath­room prod­ucts, gar­den care and home­ware sup­plier GWAIn­ter­na­tional Ltd.

GWA­manag­ing di­rec­tor Peter Crowley said low-flush toi­lets could save sig­nif­i­cant amounts of wa­ter.

Mr Crowley said his com­pany, whose brands in­clude Caroma bath­room prod­ucts and Dux hot wa­ter sys­tems, re­cently re­leased a prod­uct that used only 4.5 litres of wa­ter on a full flush and three litres of wa­ter for the al­ter­nate flush. In Aus­tralia, there were about three mil­lion toi­lets that were us­ing 12 litres of wa­ter on ev­ery flush.

Mr Crowley said an­other wa­ter­sav­ing de­vice was a wa­ter pump mounted un­der a sink which mea­sured wa­ter tem­per­a­ture.
