SSI celebrates World Plumbing Day....with Cupcakes!
March 11, 2014 at 1:31 PM
Silly cupcake, but serious message! There is nothing more important than clean drinking water and good basic sanitation to keep the world and the people in it healthy. As a thank you to our local plumbers for their role in preserving and protecting our water supply - SSI partnered with BA Robinson early March 11th to give our water themed cupcakes and bottles of water. The cupcake to say 'thanks' and the water bottle to give a visual of home much water using Caroma dual flush toilets actually saves! One family using Caroma Smart flush toilets instead of a standard 6 litre toilet saves the equivalent of approx. 75,000 water bottles a year. Imagine if everyone did this!

Do you know why Caroma Toilets simply don't clog?
January 21, 2014 at 12:25 PM
Caroma toilets are engineered from the ground up with 'Matched Performance' technology, meaning that all elements of the flush are designed to work well with not only all components of the Caroma toilet, but as importantly with the design of your plumbing system. One of the most important elements is the size of the Caroma trapway. This is a Caroma trapway as compared to a typical North American toilet. Read more by clicking below:

The key to saving water can sometimes be...attitude!
November 15, 2013 at 1:38 PM
Have a look at this great "Treehugger" article! "Singapore's water is not for sale! But you can Rent it!" Of course, we are all pretty much 'renting' water as we generally use it and then dispose of it. But thinking of water as not 'ours' to own is an interesting mindset to perhaps make us better stewards of this precious resource! When we remember that water isn't 'new' every time it runs through our faucets, it perhaps motivates us to keep it as clean as possible for the next time we need a 'rental'!
