Water In The UAE

Due to the UAE depending greatly on desalination to supply its population with clean water, it is crucial that its citizens, both as producers and consumers, take part in helping save water. to maintain the quality of life in the UAE, the future growth of its economy and of it’s infrastructure, water plays a critical role.

 With limited resources, the UAE has one of the highest water consumption rates in the world. Through desalination, treatment and transportation does your water flow from your taps. By decreasing the rate at which you use water, you’ll help to lessen the UAE’s dependence on desalination and its nasty side effect, carbon footprint.

11.8 Billion AED

The United Arab Emirates spends 11.8 billion  AEDs per year in order to produce desalinated water, an average 7.16 AEDs per cubic metre.

41% Desalination

The production of desalinated water in the UAE and other oil producers within the Gulf sum up to 41% of world’s total water output.

25kg of Carbon

The process of desalination has a carbon footprint of 25kg per cubic metre of water. This does not include the maintenance and building of desalination projects.

20% of Energy

By 2030 fuel requirements for desalination will reach 16 million tons of oil equivalent (or 20% of the country’s primary oil demand)

Ways to save

Teeth brushing

Water comes out of the average faucet at 2.5 gallons per minute. Don’t let all that water go down the drain while you brush! Turn off the faucet after you wet your brush, and leave it off until it’s time to rinse.

Kitchen sink

Conserve water when hand-washing dishes by partially filling the sink with soapy water and quickly rinsing dishes with a spray device or in a pan of warm water. Clean vegetables in a partially-filled sink rather than under a continuously running tap. Install an aerator attachment on your taps to use up to 25% less water

Outside

Water your garden early in the morning or later in the evening. Avoid midday, when the sun is at its strongest and evaporation levels at their highest. Use waterless car washes for your vehicles rather than hoses. Sweep your drive ways and pavements rather than hosing them down with water

Taps

Did you know that a tap that drips just once per second wastes 2,700 gallons of water annually? Make sure to turn taps off properly after use

Toilet

If your toilet has an old-style flush, you can save 1 liter of water each flush by fitting a displacement bag. Check your toilet regularly for leaks by putting a few drops of food coloring in the tank. If, without flushing, the color appears in the bowl after 15-20 minutes, you have a leak which should be fixed to avoid further water wastage

Laundry

Only turn on the washing machine when there’s a full load. Choose an appropriate wash cycle for the load size and use the shortest cycle possible. Eight to ten minutes will suffice for most laundry requirements. Only use environmentally friendly laundry products

Take showers

Switching from a daily bath to a daily shower could save up to 15000 liters a year. Also, try to reduce the time you spend in the shower, invest in a water-efficient shower head, and turn off the water when shampooing your hair

Dishwasher

Water-efficient dishwashers use less water and less energy to heat the water than standard models.
Use full loads to save water and energy and use the shortest cycle available

Save with Us

The technology in our aerators is such that air is mixed with the water to create a steady stream of water and a barely noticeable change in water pressure. They pay for themselves in water savings within the first month of use, and savings in both water and money continue to stack up long after. Our products are truly a mindless way to save money! So what are you waiting for?

Frequently Asked Questions

u

What is an aerator?

A faucet aerator (or tap aerator) is often found at the tip of modern indoor water faucets. Aerators can be simply screwed onto the faucet head, creating a non-splashing stream and often delivering a mixture of water and air.

u

Are faucet aerators necessary?

Don’t worry that an aerator will cause the water to trickle out of the faucet. In fact, if your home has low water pressure, installing tap aerators along with low-flow shower heads can help increase the pressure.

u

How much water does an aerator save?

The aerator (the screw-on tip of the faucet nozzle) restricts the maximum flow rate of water from the faucet. New kitchen faucets are usually equipped with a 2.2 gpm (8.3 Lpm) aerator. Bathroom faucets can have aerators that restrict flow to 1.5, 1.2, 1.0, or 0.5 gallons per minute (5.7, 4.5, 3.8 or 1.9 Lpm).

u

What is a flow regulator disk?

Our flow regulating discs can be easily fitted to any shower head to reduce the amount of water flowing from the outlet without adversely affecting the outlet pressure. Therefore reducing your water consumption without compromising the pressure.
