Waterblade triumphant at water ‘Oscars'

Waterblade, which has pioneered the Waterblade water and energy-saving adapter for taps, triumphed at last night's Water Industry Achievement Awards when it walked away with the Outstanding Innovation 2016 and Most Innovative New Technology trophies.

Around 550 professionals from the water companies, the regulators, contractors and suppliers descended upon the Hilton Birmingham Metropole to applaud the achievements of the awards’ winners and finalists.
