Wirquin to save water and money

With water saving being the number one topic of conversation in the UK and Ireland, plumbers are in a prime position to use and recommend water saving products to help their customers save water and money.

Many people may not realise that toilets are one of the biggest water wasters in the home and business premises accounting for nearly 30% of household consumption. So a good starting point is to reduce flushing capacity and flow rate. For example, a family of four on a water meter using a dual flush toilet instead of a full flush toilet can save around £100 per year.

“Using water wisely saves customers money on their water and energy bills and helps to extend the life of existing supply and waste-water facilities,” says Jim Brennan, Wirquin Business Development Manager for Ireland.

Wirquin is a leading sanitary equipment specialist that produces a full range of WRAS approved products that meet new building regulations and retrofit requirements for both the home and business. There is a full range of flushing valves, inlet valves, siphons and kits to meet all installers and customers needs.

The multi-award winning Macdee Motion universal dual flush siphon has a large selection of flush volume settings which allows the end user to save water. Since its launch last year it has won multiple awards for its innovative technology and is a bestseller with installers. Thanks to its compact design it fits all lever-operated cisterns (or your money back) so it’s the only siphon that installers need in their van for any job. A unique and robust flapper system replaces the traditional diaphragm and comes with a ten-year guarantee.

The Jollytronic no touch flush valve with ecostop flushing technology also enables the user to determine the duration of the flush by hovering their hand over the infrared sensor for a full flush or part flush. It’s perfect for households on a water meter. The Jollytronic is quick and easy to install into new and existing cisterns and offers a modern and hygienic solution for the youngest to the oldest member of the household.

The Jollyfill inlet valve range which works with the Macdee Motion and the Jollytronic provides water saving delayed action and can save up to 0.4 litres per flush. The telescopic bottom entry low pressure inlet valve brings together technical performance and ease of installation. It can be installed whilst in situ, adapted to varied cistern heights and has a unique clutch system to prevent breakage if overtightened. The side entry inlet valve is also easy to install thanks to its 90-degree rotating head which allows it to be fitted into even the smallest corners. The whole Jollyfill range has a working pressure of 0.1 – 16 bar and is resistant to peaks of pressure up to 20 bars – making them fast-filling and complete with an ultra quiet shut off.

A full range of WRAS approved water-saving products by Wirquin is available on the Wirquin website and in all good stockists.
