Water & Energy Saving Technology

Inspired by nature, designed by intelligence. Alder is committed to saving energy and water to protect the planet with their SAVEMODE innovation. With SAVEMODE when you turn on your mixer tap from the neutral position, you use only 100% cold water. Whereas conventional mixers use 50% hot and 50% cold, thus igniting the hot water system and using unwanted energy. Alders innovative SAVEMODE reduces your use of energy by not igniting the hot water system when it is not required.



Delivering Lead Free Tapware

Alder is delivering important public health benefits to our builders, their customers and the community in 2024, with the introduction of lead free tapware at the builder specification and value for money end of the market. With a focus on wellness and living better for a more sustainable life, Alder have focused on delivering lead free products first across their volume products. All of Alder’s current tapware range has used on average less than half the allowable lead under the current Australian Standards. The company has always worked hard to minimise the use of lead.
