Water Leak Detection
According to Professor Vanessa Speight at the University of Sheffield water scarcity is a growing issue in the UK. Across England and Wales, just under 3 billion litres (660 million gallons) of water is lost to leaks every day – that is equivalent to 1,180 Olympic swimming pools at an alarming rate of 450,000 gallons per minute.
Valves & PIR Controls
Watersavers supplies a range of PIR occupancy switches that switch on water, lighting, heating, ventilation or air-conditioning loads when the PIR sensor detects a person or people in an area and switches off these supplies when the area is vacated or unoccupied. The range includes recessed ceiling PIR switch PIR-PR, ceiling mounted PIR switch PIR-CM and wall mounted PIR switch PIR-WM
Depending on how old they are or when they were installed most urinals use between 3.7 to 11.3 litres water for each flush. The 1999 Water Regulations stipulate that there should be a maximum water usage of 7.5 litres per urinal bowl per hour and that a device should be fitted to prevent urinals from flushing when the facility is unoccupied.
Legionella is a genus of pathogenic Gram-negative bacteria that causes legionellosis including Legionnaires’ disease and Pontiac fever. The bacteria can develop in stagnant water at temperatures between 20 and 50 degrees* Celsius.
