Oman: Monday, August 23 - 2010 @ 12:36

The water saving devices installed under the supervision of Al Majal Environmental and Technical Services, is expected to save money and water resources on a daily basis. Water saving devices or retrofits are eco-friendly devices designed to save huge amounts of water in any location where there are taps, wash basins, sprayers, toilets and other water outlets. These devices when fitted to standard water outlets provide water saving of up to 60%. A variety of water saving devices provides several options for establishment to choose the most appropriate water flow for their water outlet.

Waljat College’s Administration Manager Mr. Hamoud Ali Al Jabry said, “One of our priorities at the Waljat College is to adopt green practices not only in its facilities but in the school curriculum as well. We believe and support the principles of education for sustainable development and the role young people play in the country’s sustainability. We would like Waljat College to lead in every aspect of this field.”

Mr. Ahmed Al Sabahi, CEO of Al Majal, said:

“We congratulate Waljat College for this initiative which clearly shows their drive towards sustainability. This initiative will not only save resources for the college, it will also contribute to environmental protection. We urge other schools and companies to pursue water saving as part of their corporate social responsibility at the same time contribute to the country’s growth and development.”

Study shows that as much as 40% could be saved from showerheads, 50% from taps and 30% from WC flushes when retrofitted with these devices. The investment in these devices is greatly outweighed by the monetary and environmental benefits. The water saving devices were developed to achieve balanced relationship between conserving water and ensuring maximum user convenience. These aerators are designed to have a pressure sensitive membrane that decreases incoming water pressure while drawing in much more air than conventional aerators leading to a gentler and evenly distributed flow.

Al Majal, based in Seeb, is currently conducting free water audits in major establishments including the trial installation of water saving devices and waterless urinals. These initiatives are part of a newly launched water saving campaign of Al Majal. Waljat College is one of the first establishments to support its water saving initiative.
