AQVA MORE, a startup based in the Taguspark Incubator, has developed an intuitive technological system that is easy to install in any home, and which offers considerable water savings. As an example, in a house with four people, the Aqva More system can prevent the loss of around 20,000 litres of water per year. The system is saleable and advance orders are being taken. With this technology, AQVA MORE won the Start Up Portugal Smart Cities Summit 2019 award.
With the new AQVA MORE system, when you turn on the tap for a shower or to get hot water, the water will only come out when it is hot. The system retains the cold water, which would otherwise be wasted, in the pipes until it reaches the desired temperature. This is how the AQVA MORE system works, allowing you to save thousands of litres per year in homes or service facilities.
To start saving, simply install two modules, one in the boiler or water heater and the other in the tap. The system is easy to assemble and does not require any DIY work.
It is simple to use. The control module (installed in the boiler or water heater) records the water savings (digital control) and manages the peripheral modules. The peripheral modules are installed in the tap or taps where the customer wishes to make water savings. The system allows various modules to be installed around the house. It is easy to pair the various devices and communication is via a wireless connection.
The advantages are numerous: it conserves natural resources, lowers the cost of our water bill, reduces
our environmental footprint and can be installed in houses, flats, or local accommodation, and also in offices, companies, or workshops, as well as in sports buildings, gyms, and all kinds of changing rooms.
“Aqva More was recently awarded the 1st ADENE AQUA+ Prize for Water Efficiency of Buildings. This award raises the profile of our brand, of a project developed at Taguspark, where all production and initial sales will be based. This innovation in Water Efficiency brings a new paradigm to the market in the use of drinking water, the responsible and thoughtful use of which is of growing important. Sales are expected to start at the end of the first quarter of 2021. With Aqva More, wasting water is a thing of the past!”, says CEO João Guerreiro.
