Water saving challenge

Water is not endless. Clean water is a dwindling natural resource and water resources are unevenly distributed. Finnish person uses an average of 155 liters of water a day, when a global average is 22 liters/person. Drinkable water is also consumed for many things other than drinking or cooking, such as doing dishes, laundry or taking a shower.

POAS reduces water consumption by various means, such as installing water saving components in the water fixtures of our apartments. Current standard showers’ water flows with the speed of 12 liters/minute, but older models or large rain showers can flow even 20 liters in a minute. Shortening your showering time by few minutes can save tens of liters of water per day.

Tenants can get a shower coach from POAS office to measure time spent in the shower. Shower coach is a hourglass that you can attach on the wall of your shower. Sand flows for 4 minutes. 

During Autumn 2020 we will challenge our tenants to participate in the water saving campaign! Stay tuned!
