The 5 best Water Saving Taps for your home
The Water Efficiency and Labelling Standards Scheme (WELS) is an Australian Government lead system that rewards brands for making the most water efficient products possible.
We have compiled a list of some of the highest WELS rated taps currently on the market in an effort to help you save money and the planet.
Water Saving Tap 1: Billi Sensor Tap 6 Star
The Billi Sensor Tap range offers stunning ergonomic styling and the latest in sensor tap technology. A clever spout-mounted movement sensor responds as hands move into the basin, ensuring accurate and trouble free operation. Designed to be fully disabled access compliant, the Billi Sensor tap range is an excellent washroom solution for home, office, commercial, medical or educational environments.
Water Saving Tap 2: Dyson AB09 Air Blade Tap Hand Dryer 6 Star
With Airblade™ technology in a tap, hands can be dried at the sink in 12 seconds. There’s no need to move to a separate hand drying area. The latest Dyson digital motor was seven years in the making – it’s one of the world’s smallest fully-integrated 1600W motors. It’s the only hand dryer motor powerful enough to draw in up to 30 litres of air a second through a HEPA filter, and then dry hands in 12 seconds.
Water Saving Tap 3: Enware Bib Tap 6 Star
Enware’s Australian-made self-closing drinking fountains and bubblers are constructed from dezincification resistant (DR) brass and are WaterMark Licensed to AS/NZS 3718. Featuring a vandal resistant handle, a durable chrome plated finish and an integral adjustable flow regulator allowing onsite control of the flow of water from the outlet. The unique valve design provides an effective, low maintenance mechanism for a range of flow conditions. The tapware and bubblers are serviceable with all wearing components replaceable, thus providing a longer life.
Water Saving Tap 4: Markwik 21 Bib Mixer 6 Star
Pillar mixer tap with integral thermostat single sequential lever, single flow fixed horizontal nozzle. Sequential operation ensures both hot and cold water is drawn on each use, long lever gives precise control. Insulated technology keeps the ‘hot’ side of the mixer at a safe surface temperature. A safer alternative in refurbishments to older style swan neck versions.
Water Saving Tap 5: HANSACANYON 6 Star
The unpretentiously monolithic body of the HANSACANYON braces itself against the power of this primordial element – levelling its path in a quite spectacular way. The scenery is illuminated from within using light coloured to correspond to the temperature of the water, in a cool blue, a gentle violet or a warm red. Electronic sensor buttons provide the controls.
