What is sustainability?

What is sustainability?

SustainabilityIt’s a buzzword everybody uses, but if you go looking for an actual definition of sustainability, the explanations vary and most of them go on for pages. The simplest way to look at it is to split up the word: sustainability is the ability to sustain. To sustain is to support or keep going. When products and services support the earth’s precious natural resources and keep them going, that’s sustainability. 

ACT D’MAND is proud to be a company with a passion and respect for sustainability. With a focus on protecting and preserving water, the ACT D’MAND Kontrols pumping system is easily installed into any home or commercial building. The proprietary pump technology delivers hot water on demand, within seconds. Instead of waiting around for water to heat up, and watching it circle the drain while it does, hot water is available when the ‘hot’ faucet is turned on.

There is a strain on water supplies and sewage systems in many areas of the country. A typical household wastes between 7,000 and 10,000 gallons of water a year just waiting for water to get hot, according to studies conducted by the EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy.

The ACT D’MAND Kontrols pumping system is a simple, sustainable solution to a complex problem.

ACT D’MAND Kontrols® is a registered trade mark of Advanced Conservation Technology Distribution, Inc., a family business based in Costa Mesa, Calif. ACT D’MAND Kontrols Systems are made in America and sold through wholesale plumbing supply houses and national representative groups. For more information, visit www.gothotwater.com.
