TWYFORD BATHROOMS - Top Marques For Water Efficiency


Alcona from Twyford Bathrooms becomes the second twyford bathroom range to win waterwise marque.

The Alcona suite by Twyford Bathrooms has become the second Twyford Bathrooms product to become a recipient of the coveted Waterwise Marque for water efficiency today (Thursday 16th April) at the annual Waterwise conference.

Announcing Twyford Bathrooms as a second time winner, The Director of Waterwise, Jacob Tompkins commented; ‘Waterwise is pleased to award The Alcona WC Suite with the prestigious Waterwise Marque. The Alcona WC Suite is a well designed, affordable toilet which saves huge volumes of water in comparison to normal 9 litre flush toilets. Twyford is setting the standard when it comes to manufacturing quality water efficient toilets.’

The Waterwise Marque – the first scheme in the UK to highlight water efficient products – is awarded annually to products that reduce water wastage or raise the awareness of water efficiency. Only a handful pf Marques were awarded this year. This is the second time Twyford Bathrooms has received the Waterwise Marque, the first was for the Galerie Flushwise WC in 2007.

The Alcona Suite with its Flushwise (patent pending) technology provides a low price bathroom suite with a dual flush 4/2.6 to help consumers do their bit for water conservation.

Toilets are one of the top ‘consumers’ of water in the home, with 45 million domestic WC’s in the UK using an estimated 2 billion litres of water per day. Because consumers do not replace their bathrooms often, approximately 40 million toilets in our homes flush on excessive amounts of water, between 13 and 7.5 litres per flush.

Only 5 million domestic toilets flush with 6 litres in accordance with the current water regulations, which is unacceptable in today’s climate. In fact, Government figures show that the average flush in the UK uses 7.5 litres of water; switching to the new Alcona WC, with its nominal 3 litre flush, will save a massive 4.5 litres per flush, an immense 60% saving.

Mike Conlon, managing director of Twyford Bathrooms explains, ‘With climate change and global warming, the fact is that the UK now receives much less rain that it once did. With increases in population and urbanisation, this puts extreme pressure on our finite water supply – the UK uses 25% more water than it does did in 1980! We are very proud of the Alcona collection, and are delighted to have been awarded the Waterwise Marque for a second time.”

Mike adds: “We are excited that organisations are recognising the necessity to provide consumers with water efficient products, but still believe that consumers must be educated and encouraged to update their WC’s”

All Twyford Flushwise products, including Alcona are manufactured to achieve the required UK flushing standard EN 997 Class 2; only product that conforms to this standard is guaranteed to clear the WC properly on every flush.

The Flushwise technology used in the Alcona collection is unique to Twyford Bathrooms. It flushes at 4 or 2.6 litres and unlike most low flushing WCs, the Flushwise retains the power behind the flush, reducing the water required by up to 60%. Alcona can be bought with confidence as in the event of any flushing problems, water volumes can be increased after installation with no re-plumbing required.

Alcona is complemented by the new water saving Aquations Low Flow brassware for both bathroom and kitchen. Its unique dual action delivers water at 2.5 litres a minute with one click back and 5 litres a minute with two clicks. The householder can choose the rate of flow, but either way it saves water every time. The Aquations Low Flow single level kitchen monobloc provides a reduced water flow of 5L per minute.

The Alcona suite also offers style and choice, from the traditional full pedestal sink and close coupled WC to wall hung for a more contemporary look and a range of accompanying bathroom furniture to maximise space without compromising on style. The WC also comes with the option of a soft close seat, a first for a suite at this price point.

Alcona has already been embraced by developers, both in the public and private sector, as a way to help achieve the Code for Sustainable Homes, an environmental assessment mechanism for new homes, containing mandatory performance levels in 7 key areas including water efficiency. The Marque is a further endorsement of the Alcona’s water saving credentials.
