Become aware of your daily water consumption and take environmentally responsible actions.
If we were fully aware of our daily water consumption, would we act differently to change our habits?
Each person consumes an average of 150 liters of water per day, which equals 55m3 of water per year and per person.

This consumption can be divided into several categories:

  • Personal hygiene (39%)
  • Sanitary facilities (20%)
  • Laundry (12%)
  • Cooking and eating (11%)
  • Dishes and housekeeping (10%)
  • Gardening (8%)

These uses are essential in daily life, but they can be the object of particular attention within the framework of a will of saving money.

What are the eco-citizens gestures that we can adopt to reduce our consumption?

Turning off the tap while brushing your teeth or taking a shower
Many people leave the tap running unnecessarily while brushing their teeth or soaping up. Adopt the motto “I get wet, I get soapy, I rinse” and turn off the tap while you are soaping up or brushing your teeth.

When you start your washing machine or dishwasher, make sure you load the machine to its maximum capacity. This will avoid multiple wash cycles, which use a lot of water.

Don’t hesitate to equip your faucets and showerheads with devices that reduce water consumption without compromising the sensation of flow. A hand shower on a faucet can reduce your consumption by 30% to 75%.

Install a dual-flush toilet, which allows you to use the minimum amount of water for flushing.

Find all the water leaks that go unnoticed on a daily basis, but become painful when you analyze your bill. Simply turn off all water-using appliances, turn off all faucets, and keep an eye on the meter. If the meter is running, it indicates a water leak.

As a friendly reminder, a dripping faucet uses 120 gallons of water per day. Water lost in the meanders of the septic tank without being used.
As for a leaky toilet flush, that’s 600 liters of water lost to the environment without being used, roughly equivalent to the daily consumption of a family of 4.

What is the point of having a water treatment system that distributes clean water to all the faucets in the house?

If we look at the categories of water consumption, we see that 72% of the water consumed is for the well-being and health of the people in the household.

The OLEO system, unique and unavoidable, allows you to benefit from pure, chemical-free water throughout your home.
You will be able to take a shower with crystal clear water that does not attack your skin, making it softer and protecting it from sediments and heavy metals contained in untreated water.
The pure water flowing from your kitchen faucets will allow you to wash your vegetables and cook in complete safety.
Your household appliances will be protected from limescale deposits, which usually cause malfunctions and shorten their lifespan.

The OLEO system (easy to install with or without the help of our technicians) is connected to the inlet of your water system.
