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.
