Waterwise efficiency award for GRAF UK

Posted by Callum Vallance-Poole, on July 26, 2019.

We’re proud to announce that GRAF UK has been named a winner in the first ever Waterwise UK Water Efficiency Product Awards, with our market-leading Platin rainwater harvesting package.

As the leading authority on water efficiency in the UK and Europe, Waterwise has launched the dedicated product awards in 2017 to complement its biannual, industry-renowned UK Water Efficiency Awards. At the inaugural ceremony, the GRAF UK team picked up a gong in the water storage category for our enhanced Platin rainwater harvesting system, which features the in-built Minimax Pro self-cleaning filter.

Benefits economy, society and environment

The Water Efficiency Product Awards recognise products or technologies that contribute to water efficiency and benefit the economy, society and environment. They span eight categories, which include plumbing, garden and water storage, and will alternate with the Water Efficiency awards year on year.

Managing director Matthew Rolph says: “We’re very proud that we can now call our Platin and Minimax Pro rainwater harvesting system award-winning – especially when the award in question is from such a well-respected organisation as Waterwise. At GRAF, we are passionate about improving water efficiency in the UK. We believe that this enhanced package is testament to this commitment. Not only does it provide a long-lasting water-saving solution, but it is deliberately easy to fit and look after – making it more accessible to homes across the country and encouraging people to make a positive change to their water use. On behalf of the whole company, I’d like to thank Waterwise for this sought-after recognition: it is a true accolade, and we feel honoured to have won.”

The award-winning package

The Platin / Minimax Pro system is a complete rainwater harvesting and filter package that provides a sustainable and reliable non-potable water supply for domestic uses, such as flushing toilets, washing clothes and watering gardens. As well as allowing consumers to use up to 50% less mains water in the home*, it also helps protect against flooding by diverting water away from the property’s drains.
