Analysis of measured data according to SS 820 000
In 2012 an energy labelling system was introduced in Sweden for basin and sink mixer taps.
The certification has been done during a couple of years and now a sufficient number of measured data for basins and kitchen mixer taps have become available for analysis of the test method.
The main goal with the Swedish standard and the test cycle has been to reward technologies that decrease water use while still offering complete functions. The analysis shows that the test cycle and the calculation of the total score from the series of activities needs to be improved in order to actually give credit for the above mentioned objectives. In this report a new test cycle of activities is suggested while the main procedures for the tests will be the same.
