Introducing the first true water management solution. The 3 in 1 water management solution save water through eliminating dripping, controls the flow of water without compromising pressure and significantly reduces maintenance.
WES Water TechnologiesIntroducing a New Water Management Solution
WES Water TechnologiesOur Objectives are to introduce water managementsolutions that: Save Water Save Money Save the Environment Empower the population to be WaterWise
The Issues – Global Water Levels Worlds water supply is under extreme stress. Globally we are past sustainable renewable water levels
The Issues – Domestic Waste Dripping tap wastes up to 30 Litres (8 Gallons) of Water per week. Outdoor taps - biggest source of water wastage in the USA estimated to be approximately 75 litres or 19.8 gallons per day where the average USA waterflow is 492 litres or 130 gallons per hour.
The Solution – Water Cartridge The Main feature of our product is that it Controls the flow of water, not Restricts it with negligible loss of pressure. We did a trial for a Chairperson of a Water Board and a Shire Councillor in Australia, they picked the Tap for the trial.Outcome of TEST The Tap was flowing at over 1200 litres (317 Gallons) per hour. We replaced the insides of the tap with our cartridge, and reduced the flow to 400 litres (106 Gallons) per hour.
The Solution – 3 FormsSolution comes in 3 forms Tap / Fawcett Cartridge Inline Cartridge for Mixer / Sensor Taps Commercial Inline CartridgeFirst 2 products will leverage American standards which are in use in a numberof SE Asian countries.A number of Universities have offered WES their facilities to refine the designsand obtain our US standards. The Universities are interested in the long termpicture helping us refine the Pipe Valve.
The Solution – Benefits Manages water flow Eliminates dripping taps Eliminates water hammering. Managing Water flow can save upto 55% of hotwater costs The flow of water is not restricted, but controlled through our cartridge Currently complies with Australia and China standards Compliance with standards for US or EU, are being undertaken. Prototypes are being developed.
The Solution – Key AttributesKey attributes of the cartridge are: Fixed Water flow valve Demonstrable water flow control with negligible loss of pressure Single component with O ring compared to 4 parts within traditional taps Unknown life span (current devices have been used 300,000+ times with no sign of wear) Low cost to manufacture equating to User friendly retail pricing whilst enabling distributors to experience healthy margins of 25 – 40%. Grade of brass approximately 5 times higher than the regular commercial products which adds to the durability of the product.
The Solution – BenefitsFor Example Texas A&M has reduced its annual energy consumption (including water) by 20 % over the past five years, saving the university approximately $50 million in energy costs and reducing carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere by 338 million pounds or 153,427 metric tons (ratio of pounds per metric tons (2203/1).
Initial Target TerritoriesInitially the product will be introduced into the followingcountries and states:• Canada• USA – Florida – California – Texas – New York• China• .
Summary The Planet doesn’t have an endless source of our precious resource! People need to be introduced to water management solutions to help curb their consumption as well as education. USA water consumption leads the world by upto 4 times the consumption of Australia and Germany. Globally we are past sustainable renewable water levels “Water is the oil of the 21st century.” –Andrew Liveris, CEO Dow Chemical, cited in “Running Dry,” The Economist, 21 Aug 08
Summary cont. WES’s water management solution is the only one of it’s kind on the planet. We can put the tools into Peoples’ hands to conserve and collectively manage the sustainability of our precious resource. Our solution is robust and real and economical with patent pending status coming before end of financial year. A limited opportunity exists for investors to obtain a stake (lots of $50,000 AUD) in WES Australia, the licensee and holder of patents.“Water is fundamental for life and health.
