Waterwise Efficiency Award for Graf UK’s rainwater package

Published:  15 March, 2017

Graf UK has been named a winner in the Waterwise UK Water Efficiency Product Awards, with its 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 UK Water Efficiency Awards.

At the inaugural ceremony, Graf UK picked up a gong in the water storage category for its enhanced Platin rainwater harvesting system, which features the in-built Minimax Pro self-cleaning filter.

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.

Matthew Rolph, managing director at Graf UK, said: “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. We knew Waterwise was looking for products that could really demonstrate positive water, energy and money savings for UK homes. That’s exactly what we developed the Platin package to do: it cuts bills, lessens the burden on the mains water supply, and lowers homes’ environmental impact.”

Mr Rolph continued: “As experts in water management, 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.”
