As a resident in South Africa one always hopes for a good bout of showers during the regional rain seasons. However, often our dams and reservoirs do not fill up for the dryer months and water restrictions are put in place to save water. But as we move into an era of climate uncertainty, it is vital that we practice water saving tips and techniques no matter what the level of our dams are for the year. As consumers it is also important that we create a demand for water saving products from service providers and retailers in South Africa, so that saving water in South Africa becomes not an exception but a norm.
Companies are increasingly providing consumers with more methods of saving water, however few South Africans are aware of exactly how much can be done to save water and electricity beyond solar power panels, bore holes and LED lights. Serbco distributors, a leading supplier of innovative yet economic water saving plumbing pipes and fittings, is the sole supplier of effective water and electricity saving products in South Africa. There are currently nine Serbco distributors countrywide, supplying the many plumbing contractors Cape Town offers, as well as Johannesburg and Durban.
Stefani Water Heater:
Many of us are guilty of running the hot water tap few a few seconds while we wait for the cool water to get warm. That amounts to thousands of litres of good quality drinking water being wasted each year. Furthermore, because the source of heating is relatively far from the outlet, heat energy dissipates through the piping. Fortunately there are ways to save this water. The Stafani Instant Water Heater from Serbco is a brilliant way of saving water and electricity at home. Water is instantly heated as it flows through the unit, using only 65% of the energy of a regular geyser. There are no long pipes where heat can be lost and water is only heated instantaneously when needed. Thus for every 10 meters of piping an outlet has, up to 3.2 litres of water can be saved every time. Ask the plumbing contractors Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town have as to whether they stock Stefani Water Heathers and other Serbco distributed products and save water at home.
