Flow restrictors

Save water with flow restrictors!

It’s easy to save water: If you install the right accessories in your bathroom and toilet, you don´t have to worry about the next water bill.
According to statistics, 15 years ago every German has consumed 148 liters daily drinking water.
Today, together with Belgium, Germany is in the rear end in terms of water consumption in the developed world. Meanwhile, the Germans use 20 liters of drinking water less  from the tap. The main reason for our leading position in dealing with the precious liquid is the use of water-saving appliances and fixtures.
Especially in the bathroom, you can easily save water by installing flow restrictors and aerators. These appliances reduce water use in the shower and the sink without losing comfort. The water jets are just as strong. Only the water bill will show how effective these easy to assemble products are.

Flow restrictors  are easy to install and not expencive. They are mounted as a ring-shaped
metal inserts at the outlet of the tap or at the shower head. Flow regulators reduce the output cross-section and thus the amount of the passing water.
Since the line pressure is relatively high, the use of a flow restrictor generally leads to no loss of comfort.  If the limiter is applied with an additional aerator, the water jet flow seems to be just as strong as usual.
