The drought in Spain is currently affecting mainly the regions of Andalusia, Galicia and Catalonia. In Malaga, the Viñuela reservoir is at 12.7% of its capacity. Some towns such as Antequera and municipalities in Huelva have imposed night-time restrictions and in 150 municipalities in Catalonia consumption has been limited to 200 litres per person per day

The lack of rainfall is exacerbated by high temperatures caused by climate change, making July the driest month of the last two decades. In turn, high temperatures increase the rate of water evaporation.

The month of August does not come with better predictions. Since the beginning of the millennium, there has never been an August with less water collected. The national water reserve is at 40.42%, falling by 1.5% with each passing week. It is about to be declared the driest year in 60 years.

This situation could repeat itself and worsen in the coming years. Improved irrigation systems and more responsible consumption are measures we will have to take to avoid future droughts and periods of drought.

At the moment there is already a technology for homes that saves 149,022 litres of water per year and reduces C02 emissions by 1,490 kilograms, positively impacting the carbon footprint.

WAISENSE is presented as a sustainable solution for saving water that avoids the expense that we generate in homes without giving up the comfort of having water available all day long. In this way we achieve water savings of up to 25 litres per use and contribute to a reduction in drought and restrictions imposed by the lack of water.

The WAISENSE water-saving system means that the water that is normally wasted when we turn on the tap to get hot water is not wasted. Instead of dropping the cold water that is in the hot water pipe, WAISENSE creates a return point for the water through the cold water pipe, so that it is not wasted and returns to the household plumbing system.
