Numbers don't lie: Canadians use too much water. According to Frédéric Laserre, a geography professor at Laval University and director of the Observatoire des recherches internationales sur l'eau, we consume almost 600 litres (132 gpm) of water per day, per person. The average European consumes only 300 litres (66 gpm)!

At Riobel, we know that every drop counts. That's why we've taken measures at every level to ensure that our products mesh with our environmental values. While quality is always our foremost concern, we refuse to seek it at the expense of the planet.

With this philosophy in mind, we've equipped the bulk of our lavatory faucets with efficient aerators to reduce their flow to 5.7 litres per minute maximum (1.5 gpm) - the industry norm is 8.3 litres per minute (2 gpm). Our water conservation efforts will have a definite positive impact on the environment! It's also worth noting that our Water Sense rail shower can make showers greener with a flow of only 6 litres per minute (1.6 gpm).
