Toilet flushing accounts for up to 30 % of a facilites water consumption.
Addressing the flush volume of a cistern can achieve significant savings. A standard flush of 10-14 litres can be reduced to 4-6 litres, depending on the functionality of the facility and the effectiveness of the wastewater system.
The are two WC retrofit options:
- Displacement device - traditionally a brick was used to replace 1-2 litres of water. Hippo bags and Save-a-Flush are purposely designed and will not interfere with flushing mechanism.
- Variable flush mechanism retrofit - significant and sustained saving can be made. The user can vary the volume of water used by depressing the handle to achieve desired flush volume.
For new installations or new builds, toilet manufacturers have a range of water efficient toilets that we can advise upon.

“After discovering a mains water leak in my back garden I contacted Lowflo and arranged a site visit from one of their engineers. I found them on the internet and the reviews seemed quite positive.
The engineer arrived on time, located and repaired the leak within two hours. I also received a leak detection report with photographs a week later as requested for insurance purposes.
The service provided was quick, professional and I was especially impressed with their Engineer who was extremely professional and courteous.
I would recommend them highly"
Andy from Glasnevin.
Where previous contractors had failed significantly in locating any leaks, Lowflo pin-pointed 4 and brought leakage down by over 70%.
