In a first by any brand in the sanitaryware category, HSIL Limited has introduced a range of star rated Water Efficient closets. The star rating will help consumers to make a conscious choice as each water closet will be marked identifying the water consumption of the fixtures. The certification was conducted by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO).
Water Efficient Products – India (WEP-I), is a set of recommendations for design, engineering, manufacturing, selection, installation and maintenance of water-efficient plumbing products for domestic and commercial applications in India. The use of WEP-I is intended to encourage use of water-efficient products, to incorporate and implement the latest technology and systems and provide uniformity in the performance of products.
The star rating will help consumers in making a decision while building a home or replacing one, will ensure planners and plumbers develop the required competency to conform the codes are applied and will ensure plumbing assemblies, materials and technologies are safe. The rating will also ensure effectiveness of the installations for long term benefits.
