What you can do for the environment and your wallet on a daily basis
Water is precious. We should conserve it – for the sake of the environment and our wallets. Yet all too often, too much of this precious resource trickles down the drains in our bathrooms and kitchens, unnoticed. And as we often use hot water, we not only clock up water costs, but energy costs too. However, just making a few small changes to our everyday habits can help to reduce consumption – without compromising convenience in any way.
For example, if you still have old mixers in your bathroom or kitchen, or an outmoded shower system, this will often be reflected in your service or utility charges. Modern washing and sanitation systems generally use considerably less water, which means less energy used on the hot water supply! Household water consumption can often be reduced by fitting a new mixer or shower head. At hansgrohe you will find the perfect, effective solution for the shower, bath tub, sink, and more.
Our tips for saving water will help you identify the biggest water guzzlers in your bathroom and kitchen, in turn helping you to consciously reduce your everyday water consumption.

Water-saving tip 2: Don’t leave the tap running
We often leave the tap running while we wash our hands, clean our teeth, or shave. Depending on the mixer, some 5 to 20 litres of water are wasted this way – and what’s more, every minute!
Our tip: Turn off the water when you don't actually need it. When cleaning your teeth, you can use a tooth brush tumbler. A wet shave requires only a small amount of water, which you can run into the basin before shaving. To make it as convenient as possible to turn the water on and off, Hansgrohe has developed mixers with a practical Select function. Water flows at the touch of a button - and can be turned off just as quickly.
