How to win energy, money and

WATER SAVERS
Why save water?
The same QUANTITY has been on earth for millions of years, but »
the population has been growing:

1.
Its QUALITY didn't get any better »
Every drop of water, cold or hot, used or unused, turns to waste water and has to be cleaned and treated with a lot of energy.

2.
Water uses lots of energy:
a 5 minute shower: 3 dl heating oil! »

1 month washing hands:
100 liters of water
2.5 litres of heating oil!
«Hot water uses almost as much energy as heating!»
Swiss Federal Office of Energy
3.
Hot water adds harmful CO2
to the atmosphere. More »

MUNICIPALITIES, to:
involve the community »
Municipalities use AquaClic to communicate with their inhabitants.
One motive of the Swiss municipality of Thayngen: it had to introduce waste water taxes in the following year. To soothe this step, it offered its inhabitants AquaClic with interesting discounts; here's the project:
  • In the schools, teachers held workshops and speeches about water and energy.
  • The pink frog-AquaClic was the result of a school design competition with the theme "water and energy".
  • We transformed the design into AquaClics in 3 colours.
  • They where installed in schools and other public buildings, where necessary in the theft-proof version,
  • distributed at a reduced price to the inhabitants via: Flyers with ordering forms, local shops and during a christmas market.
  • More than 25% of the population purchased the watersavers and are saving today water, energy and money with AquaClic watersavers for taps and showers. Examples of other municipality projects...

rise a town's image »
rise a town's image even without such charming “Miss Earth” candidates that installed AquaClic in Liechtenstein's government building!
AquaClic on faucets in such public places tell the users that their municipality cares about the environment.

rise users' comfort»
AquaClic also offers a solution for one of the biggest water and energy wasters: the public shower in schools or pools!

With this maintenance free and vandalproof showerhead in stainless steel, the flow rate can be reduced by up to 80%. But even the largest savings would be useless if they weren't accepted by the users.

As with all AquaClic watersaving products, we have optimized the shower spray to the top so that nobody will notice – besides the finance department – the dramatic savings!

rise citizens' awareness»
Is there a better way to rise a community's awareness to save (hot) water and energy than on a faucet or a shower?

"Energy City" is a European Label to award towns that behave energetically sustainable and offer a high standard of quality of live.

The Swiss Ministry of Energy leads this "Energy City" program in Switzerland. It encourages municipalities to use AquaClic: Branded with the label's logo and city's name it makes an easy and inexpensive medium to visualize to inhabitants and guests the achievement of this high standing label.

Can you think of a more meaningful souvenir than an AquaClic for a conference about water?

"The participants where very enthused with this gift."
M. Matauschek, Fresh Thoughts Consulting, organizer

A "Trompe-l'œil" on a faucet:
The "Casino Theater" in Winterthur (CH) created an AquaClic that looked like an entrance ticket pasted on the faucets.

Apart from the considerable energy- and watersavings these AquaClics add a colourful and witty touch to the theater.
