In collaboration with AW AG, Werner Egli

This is a Swiss plumbing fitting that sets new standards for sustainable and economical water consumption. Swiss Eco Tap® the acqua saver is an environmentally friendly solution which reduces water consumption by an unbelievable 90 percent. With a standard valve, it takes just 5 seconds to consume 1 litre. With Swiss Eco Tap® the acqua saver, by contrast, it takes all of 100 seconds. This means 90 percent water savings as compared with a standard valve. The jet gives a real sensation of cleanliness when you wash your hands, as well as feeling pleasant on the skin.
This is the most economical plumbing fitting worldwide, and lends itself to many different applications - in private households, in public transport (train, bus, ship, aircraft), in caravans or for wudu ablutions. The straightforward design of the fitting makes for convenient and user-friendly ease of operation.
