Whirlpool highlights eco appliances for Water Saving Week

In Industry News On

Whirlpool has reaffirmed its commitment to sustaining natural resources by highlighting water efficiency ahead of Water Saving Week.

According to the Week’s host Waterwise, the UK has less available water per person than most other European countries, with the event, to be held March 21 to 25, highlighting this as well as the importance of saving water wherever possible.

Whirlpool is using the focus on water efficiency by reminding consumers of some of the advantages of its appliances, including dishwashers and washing machines.

Whirlpool reveals that handwashing the same number of dishes as a full dishwasher load, uses around 49 litres of water, compared to around 10-13 litres for the average dishwasher. It is clear that using a dishwasher is significantly less wasteful than washing up by hand, and Whirlpool adds that it offers both a freestanding and built-in dishwasher that use just six litres of water for a full load.

Should the dishwasher not be used three days, such as when you go on holiday, the water is automatically drained to prevent bacteria formation, Whirlpool says.

This is coupled with Whirlpool’s 6th Sense technology. The intelligent sensors that form the basis of the Whirlpool 6th Sense PowerClean technology automatically sense the level of soiling on the dishes and adjust the programme accordingly, meaning a Whirlpool 6th Sense dishwasher will wash as economically as possible, with the benefit of up to 50% savings on water, energy and time, the brand says.

In addition, the new Whirlpool washing machines use up to 20% less water compared to older models, using only four litres of water per cycle, and saving up to 20 litres of water per wash.

Whirlpool senior brand manager Jennifer Spragg commented: “Water Saving Week encourages us to be more aware of saving water by: turning off the tap; opting for a shower rather than a bath; or by reusing leftover water for the plants. At Whirlpool, our research and development team is constantly looking at different ways to increase water savings and reduce wastage in our appliances, while also making life easier for the user. The saving of water is a crucially important issue. Our new laundry appliances and dishwashers are about as frugal as you can get, while not compromising on our long-held commitment to leading-edge design and outstanding performance.”
