Did you know that just 2.5% of the water on earth is drinkable? Water is a resource that life depends on, and that can’t be taken for granted.

But how can we do our bit to cut water waste in our day-to-day routine? The EU drafted a blueprint for long-term, integrated water management, which includes the use of water-saving devices, alongside improved education on the subject and awareness campaigns.

The EU believes that efficient use of our resources could be improved by nearly 40% through technological improvements alone, with devices able to reduce wastage by up to 50%.

To make things easier, we compiled a list of our top-selling faucets of 2020, equipped with water-saving features — from touchless sensors to flow-control systems.

 

1. Oras Electra washbasin faucet for bathroom

For the modern bathroom, this touchless faucet is equipped with an autofocus infrared sensor (PSD) that can seamlessly detect moving hands and will only run water when it’s needed — cutting consumption by up to 50%. It also comes with a temperature control handle for adjustable temperature, and its replaceable batteries can comfortably last over 3 years.

And when you want to check your water consumption or if you want to keep track of your battery life, built-in Bluetooth will refer all useful information to the Oras App and allow you to customise the faucet’s functions according to your needs. You can even set the faucet’s after flow time to a duration that minimises your water use.

 

2. Oras Vega bathroom washbasin faucet with Bidetta hand shower

The Oras Vega washbasin faucet comes with a handy bidet shower and is complete with our smart eco-button, which limits temperature and flow rate, keeping water and energy waste at a minimum. It also doubles as a safety button, making it a top choice for families with children.

The elegant and hybrid Oras Optima kitchen faucet comes with both easy-grip levers for hot and cold water and touchless functions, which prevent unnecessary water waste by activating only when hands are within the recognition range. What’s more, the faucet’s temperature display will help you keep an eye on your energy bill and prevent piping hot water from burning your hands. The fixture is available in two models: one with a high flexible spout and the other with a lower, chrome-plated spout.
