💧 In Housebuilder and Developer’s latest research paper ‘Approaches to Water Efficiency in New Homes’, Harvey Water Softeners delves further into research conducted with the CIPHE (Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering).
In 2021, we carried out a survey with the CIPHE to gather views from the industry on the impact of hard water on the home. The survey found that 9 in 10 plumbers and heating engineers see hard water as a threat to homeowners’ heating and plumbing systems. ⚙️
The pressure was already on to increase water efficiency, and reduce water use, as much as possible in new homes. However, this has increased during the last few years, driven by the rise in people working from home post-Covid, as well as increased water shortages across the country.
The general push is to make homes and their appliances as water efficient as possible, against overall sustainability targets driven by climate change, and the leaks which water companies continue to wrestle with.
Housebuilder and Developer asked us what we thought of the current regime, and what more could be done. Find out how our water softening solutions can increase water efficiency and reduce water use.
