Water…. comes from Heaven!

Clean and in abundance, more than 900L per m² per year. So on an ordinary house approx. 90.000L per year, clean, clear and free.

He provides us with everything we need, in abundance and the source is eternal. Be careful with what we have, to pass on to our children and future generations. Our earth is our home! Did you know, of the 1.4 billion m³ of water on earth, 97% of it consists of salt water (oceans) and only 0.3% is usable fresh water and the rest is ice?

We can purify the groundwater that we now use, but this is becoming increasingly difficult because so many chemical substances end up in it that cannot or can hardly be removed (such as medicine residues, plastics, etc.). clean water from the tap. In periods of drought (both in winter and summer) the groundwater runs out due to the large quantities that we use per person, this is 136 liters of water per day! The solution is being sought in the purification of surface water by large installations, which in turn will cost extra. A lot can be solved by using water wisely.

With the following tips and our products you can save 90% while maintaining comfort! But above all, be careful with what we have, to pass it on to our children and future generations!

Collecting and using rainwater is a good way to conserve drinking water. It is extremely good to water plants in the garden, but also in the house. Because rainwater does not contain lime, it is even better for plants than tap water. Of course you can also wash your car with the rainwater and it will clean it perfectly.

In this way you can save approximately 6,000 liters of drinking water per year with a rain barrel. There are wooden and plastic barrels. The content varies from 10 liters (!) to 230 liters. see picture

This rain column in the photo below contains 1000L of rainwater.

You can easily connect the rain barrel, by means of a downspout filter , to the downspout. These are available with / without a filter. The filter ensures that leaves do not end up in the rain barrel. In addition, you can place the barrel on a plastic or metal coaster, so that a bucket or watering can can be placed under it

Rainwater systems

Our drinking water is of excellent quality and actually too good to just use for plants, garden, car or even to flush the toilet.  Did you know that you use 15,000L of drinking water for the toilet per person per year?

Did you know,  that on average 800 to 1000L of clean rain falls per m2 per year? That means about 80 to 100,000L on a roof of about 100m2!       The rain is of such a quality that it is easy to clean the whole  to filter  and save and start using!

There are several options; from a simple small rain barrel to larger systems in plastic or concrete, from 1 m3, 5 m3  up to even 60m3. To use the clean rainwater for toilet flushing (without limescale) or even for the washing machine (less soap needed) and for the garden of course. We recommend keeping a stock of at least 1500L per person to bridge a drought of about 4-5 weeks.

The ECOSAVE products are easy to apply and can thus easily save 20% to 60% on that valuable and special drinking water.

Personal hygiene

Personal Hygiene is important in the toilet, sink and shower.

Did you know that from a normal tap an average of 12-15 liters of water flows per minute and from a shower 12 to 30 liters (rain shower) of warm water flows per minute?! A shower of about 10 minutes therefore quickly costs 120L or even 300L of water, but 4x more gas, so about 400 or 1200 liters of gas!

That is really not necessary, with the saving products from ECOSAVE you can easily save up to 50% while maintaining comfort with the Spaarperlator at the tap, the special toilet water stop or a standard or luxury shower head .

Calculate for yourself what you can save in your household or hotel, you will be surprised

With our special 5-phase Microfiltration , the rainwater can be made suitable for showering or even drinking. This way you can save 100% of your drinking water by using rainwater!
