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.

BAM Construction - Jonathan Whelan
Our client, was having difficulty with the local authority as a leak in their building had run up a large bill. The building, being over 200 years old, was a warren of pipes and a leak had not manifested itself within the confines of the building. However, Lowflo, were able to locate the position of the leak within 3 hours and as a result, we have been able to advise our client on how to proceed with repair works. What I found very helpful, was the professionalism, knowledge and all round friendly nature of the Lowflo operative. As a result of this experience, we would be happy to engage Lowflo in future work or to refer other clients onto them.
