We all care about the environment, and even more so about our own hip pocket so why are we potentially wasting so much water and money using Top Load Washing Machines?
Top Load Washing machines have been the “go-to” for both the domestic and commercial industry for so long, but they are now heavily outdated with high water consumption and provide a great clean quality.
With an average Top Load Washer using 120+ litres of water per cycle, compared to Maytag’s Commercial MHN33PN Front Load Washer using only 40litres per cycle, the difference in water wastage is huge!
We created a quick time lapse video comparing the water usage between Maytag’s Commercial Top Load and Front Load washing machine, which you can see below.
Each washer had a comparable cycle selected, with the drain hose hooked up to our tubs with colour dye in them which you can watch fill up with water as the machine drains.
This clearly highlighting’s the water usage difference – even we were shocked when seeing how much more water these top load washers use!
While a water saving of approx 80 liters per cycle might not seem huge, if your laundry room has 5 washing machines in it, doing an industry average of 4 cycles a day, for a full year the savings as seen in the below table will quickly pay off any new equipment investment.
|Top Load Washer||MHN33PN Front Load Washer|
|Water used per cycle:||120 litres||40 litres|
|Water consumed daily on 4 cycles per day:||480 Litres||160 liters|
|Total Daily Water Usage with 5 washers:||2400 Litres||800 Litres|
|Total Yearly Water Usage:||876,000.00 Litres||292,000.00 Litres|
|Front Load Water Yearly Savings:||584,000.00 LITRES PER YEAR,
ON GOING SAVING.
