Hospitality facilities in general, and hotels in particular, consume a lot of water. In fact, a single room can consume between 60,000 and 220,000 liters per year. From an economic point of view, this means not only having high water costs, but also energy costs. Therefore, consumption must be a priority for the hotel design and it can be controlled through the implementation of actions aimed at reducing waste. Furthermore, it is very useful to undertake an in-depth research of savings opportunities to apply small precautions and changes not only in internal practice, but above all in customers’ habits, since they have the greatest responsibility for water consumption in hotels, as you can see from these data relating to the distribution of water consumption in a medium-sized hotel:
Water consumption in the rooms and common bathrooms represents 54% of total consumption. It is clear that this is where efforts must be focused to contain consumption. And it is equally clear that if you want to achieve meaningful results, you need to involve your customers.
What products does Idral offer to limit water consumption?
IDRAL offers products that help with water saving, as well as satisfying aesthetics and ergonomics needs. The Otto Line, for example, is the latest line of design electronic basin taps created by Idral. It is available with battery or electric power. It is easy to install and easy to use. It is beautiful to look at, easy to clean and above all safe because it is TOUCH FREE.
The Otto line is useful in terms of consumption and it has all the requirements to reduce water waste: 6lt/minute for the actual time in which it is used, which can be reduced on request down to 1.9lt/minutes.
The automatic control of the water flow prevents the uncontrolled consumption of water. And to satisfy aesthetic needs, it is available in different finishes to match the design vision and furnishings: traditional chrome or white, black, rosy bronze, gold and even two colors: white+chrome or black+chrome.
If, on the other hand, you are looking for another solution while still reducing consumption, IDRAL offers self-closing taps. They are more traditional in terms of choice and manual in operation, but just as convenient and suitable for saving water, the timed taps close after 15 or 25 seconds, ensuring optimization of use and unnecessary waste of water.
