Nanaimo: iDUS Controls Ltd. is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the Green Nanaimo Award in the category of Green Design (Product) with Distinction for innovation and design in the development of water conservation products. The Green Nanaimo Awards are bestowed by City Council to recognize local activities that effectively enhance, preserve or protect the local environment and that encourage environmental stewardship in the community.
iDUS received the award in recognition of its suite of environmentally friendly and economical products that promote water conservation in and around the home.
The iDUS Home Conservepump™ recycles water by reusing bath and shower grey water or rainwater to flush the toilet. The unit mounts on the wall of a utility space and is easily integrated into existing plumbing, shower and toilet fixtures.
With the huge increase in interest around home water conservation, the City has chosen to be proactive in making it easy for Nanaimo residents to get properly-inspected grey water systems in their homes. City staff have been working with iDUS Controls Ltd. to implement low-cost yet convenient and, most importantly, safe grey water toilet flushing systems for local residents. A fast-tracked, low-fee approvals process has been put in place by the City for the installation of this economical, reliable system that saves up to 30 percent of a home’s water use plus a similar reduction in sewage flows
“Reducing water consumption is a key objective of sustainable building and the response to our residential grey water system has been fantastic,” commented Ron Hartman, CEO of iDUS Controls. “The award from the City of Nanaimo reflects the great partnership we have had with the City in developing our products.”
iDUS also produces the Garden Conservepump™ - a completely automated rainwater irrigation pump and controller. The Garden Conservepump™ has a sensor-based control system that waters only when needed, ensuring the most efficient reuse of rainwater compared to conventional irrigation systems.
“Conventional irrigation controllers assume there’s an endless water supply, so they can’t be used for rainwater irrigation or water reuse systems,” notes Mr. Hartman. “Because the Garden Conservepump™ only waters when needed, it squeezes the most out of the available water supply.”
