Nearly 70% of the earth's surface is covered by water. That's almost one billion cubic miles of water. However, the mast majority of that water is salt water, which is virtually unusable for human consumption. Only 3% of the earth's surface contains fresh water, and only 25% of that fresh water is available, since the rest is locked away in ice caps and glaciers. In fact, only abut 1% of the world's fresh water is easily accessible and usable for drinking or washing. As you can tell, there's not a lot of water to go around. The reality is that usable water is a limited resource. As the world's population grows, and even as some cultures gain access to fresh water for the first time, there will be even less to go around. Before you start worrying, this trend doesn't mean that there's not enough water for the world's population. It does mean that the more we can develop water-conserving products and processes, the better. At T&S, we've always taken water conservation seriously. In 1947, we introduced the first pre-rinse unit to the foodservice industry, and within 4 decades, we had innovated it into the first low-flow unit designed to save water and energy. Today, our B-0107-C and B-01078-C pre-rinse units are both endorsed by the Green Restaurant Association. The savings don't stop with just pre-rinse units, either. T&S offers thousands of products engineered to save water for both the plumbing and foodservice industries. Here are a few of our favorites. Consider our electronic faucets. Their water runs only when the faucet sensors a user's hands under the spout, and since the flow is set at a predetermined rate, it's impossible not to save water. Compared to a standard faucet, an electronic faucet from T&S can save as much as a gallon of water per handwash. Our B-107-C spray valve, the first low-flow unit of its kind, operates at a low 0.65 gallons per minute. That means even EPACT compliant spray valves use almost 250% as much water as the B-0107-C. In this dramatic demonstration, you can see how much water is saved in just a few seconds by our new low-flow spray valves. Our 0.65 gallon model is on the left. A standard 1.42 gallons per minute model is on the right. You can see our new low-flow spray valves, in just 15 seconds, use far less than 1/2 the water of the current federal standard. In many settings, metering faucets can provide just the right level of performance, while also conserving water and energy. Since they operate with the push of a button, metering faucets don't even require the minimal energy that electronic faucets do. Yet, they continue to regulate both the duration of flow and the amount of water for the user, turning on when the user desires, and stopping the flow at a predetermined time. For many faucet applications, electronic and metering simply aren't an option. For those applications, T&S offers a range of low-flow aerators. Keeping the water flow to a minimum while ensuring performance, our aerators can save you water and energy in even high-use settings. Again, watch this brief comparison between a standard faucet on the right and a T&S low-flow aerator on the left. In just 15 seconds time, you can easily see the dramatic difference in the amount of water consumed. For those who are interested in LEED certification, many T&S products can help contribute to 2 of the 6 performance categories for energy-efficient buildings: water efficiency and materials and resources. No matter your need, no matter your application, T&S has the perfect options to help you conserve water and energy. With water becoming a scarcer commodity, you can't afford not to consider T&S efficiency.
