Tips for saving water in the bathroom
There are many measures for saving water in the bathroom, and it is important that we start taking them into consideration in our day-to-day life. Some useful tips that can help us reduce water consumption include:
- Swapping your bath for a shower: this simple change can save us up to 50% of water. It is also important to opt for an efficient shower that has a stop function to regulate the water flow.
- Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth: leaving the tap running while brushing your teeth can use up to 10 litres of water per minute. When you turn the tap off while brushing your teeth, we can save a significant amount of water every month.
- Use a glass to rinse your mouth: instead of using the tap to rinse out your mouth after brushing your teeth, you can use a glass of water. This avoids wasting water.
- Fix water leaks: water leaks are one of the main causes of water waste in the home. It is important to regularly check taps, pipes and toilets to ensure that there are no leaks. And, of course, to prevent these problems, it is essential to choose quality products.

If you're wondering how to save water in the bathroom with our solutions featuring the latest technologies, you're in the right place. Here we go:
How to save water with Noken Eco-Stop and Eco-Air
Pure Line thermostatic column with Eco-Stop ➕ Joy shower handle with Eco-Air
The Pure Line thermostatic column with Noken Eco-Stop alongside the Joy shower handle with Eco-Air will help you to considerably reduce the amount of water you use.
The Noken Eco-Stop technology saves up to 50% of water consumption. Thanks to this mechanism, when the flow lever reaches the halfway point, it stops until the ECO button is pressed again, which activates the maximum flow available from the thermostatic tap.
Meanwhile, Noken Eco-Air draws air in to the shower head, which mixes with the water at a ratio of 3:1. And it also increases the pressure. The system improves user comfort, making it feel as though the water is flowing at a higher volume compared with traditional showers. By using this system, you save 10% of water, use less energy and emit less CO2 since less water needs to be heated.
How to save water with Noken Eco-Flow and Eco-Start
Acro Compact taps with Eco-Flow and Eco-Start technology
With the Acro Compact taps, you will achieve an even more sustainable lifestyle, as Noken Eco-Flow technology limits the flow of water and allows for savings of up to 89% of water thanks to the use of an eco aerator, with zero inconvenience to you.
This aerator limits the flow to a fixed rate, regardless of pressure. These aerators maintain a steady flow rate regardless of pressure changes, limiting the flow with no impact on user comfort.
Other technologies, like Noken Eco-Start, mean the tap always runs cold when you turn it on, so you only use hot water when you really need to. With this technology, in addition to saving water, you will also use less energy and emit less CO2.
