Methven Prepares for National Water Week
From 19-25 October 2021, the Australian Water Association is asking Australians to think about how best to conserve water and reimagine our water future. National Water Week examines different actions we can take to protect one of our most precious natural resources. An easy way to achieve water conservation within our own homes is to install taps and showerheads that reduce water consumption.
Methven, an innovative leader in the design and manufacture of showers, taps and valves has developed an extensive range of stylish showerheads designed to lower water usage and utility bills – without compromising on the water experience. As the Water Experts, the brand is passionate about designing intelligent stylish products, which allow homeowners to make water wise choices that needn’t cost the earth.
By using water efficient products, Australians could save approximately 185 billion litres by 2026, so it is encouraging that over half of the nation2 now consider water saving as a key factor when deciding what shower to purchase. The Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources suggests that by replacing a standard showerhead that flows at 15L/min with a shower at 6L/min, a family of four would save 105kL and $315 each year on their water bills.
“Recently launched across Australia, Methven’s new Kiri Low Flow MK2 range (see image above) of Four-Star rated showerheads combine an elegant droplet shaped rose, with innovative water dispersion technology. Requiring just 5.5 litres of water per minute, compared to the conventional nine litres, the Kiri Low Flow MK2 was designed using Methven’s Satinjet® technology. Another shower that’s new on the scene is the Futura MK2 shower, offering a classic minimalist style, and Satinjet® technology.
Unlike conventional showers, Satinjet® uses unique twin-jet technology to create optimum water droplet size and pressure, with over 300,000 droplets per second. The result is an immersive, full- body shower sensation that transforms your regular shower into an experience like no other,” says Andy Grigor, Head of Design and Innovation at Methven.
