THE WATER WORKS
We have a respect for nature and the outdoors. We are responsible for minimizing the environmental impact of our products, while keeping the highest standards in form and function.
ACCESS TO WATER IS NOT LIMITLESS.
Some estimates say that 38 states will have a severe shortage of clean water within the next few years. Even though 70% of the world’s surface is covered by water, less than 1% of it is available for us to use.
Did you know that a modern dishwasher is more energy and water efficient than hand washing is?
(If you hand wash your dishes, don’t let the water run. Fill one basin to wash in and another to rinse in.)
On average, each American home uses
100 GALLONS OF WATER/DAY
By installing water efficient fixtures and appliances, you can cut your use of water by 30%. Apart from being mindful of how we use water you also save quite a bit of money.
Water Usage Stats:
Steam baths are friendly to the environment because they consume small amounts of electricity and water. During the course of 20 minutes, an Amerec steam bath generator uses approximately 1 gallon of water. A normal shower will use 20 to 40 gallons of water in that time. A full bathtub requires up to 70 gallons of water and jetted tubs typically require 60 to 120 gallons of water to fill.
AMEREC STEAM:APPROXIMATELY 1 GALLON
SHOWER: 20-30 GALLONS
BASED ON A 20 minute shower time
