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.
"Lowflo carried out extensive works on our public toilets. I found them to be extremely professional in all the works they carried out and I would have no hesitation in recommending them."
Manager of the City Square Shopping Centre Waterford.
“I called Lowflo due to a large leak in our garden. Having rung a few leak detection companies they were by far the most professional with the least amount of jargon. Lowflo’s engineer was here on time as promised the next day. He explained all he was going to do and then got straight onto detecting the leak. He was fast, professional, polite and efficient and in a matter of minutes of his arrival he took away something that was quite a worry for us. The leak was located, dug up and fixed within a short period of time and Lowflo’s engineer made it very hassle free for us. If you want a professional, friendly, efficient service I would thoroughly recommend Lowflo”. Tina McDonald – Skerries Road.
