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.

We are looking to recruit a Sales Manager for Leinster. If you know of anyone that might be interested in joining a rapidly growing...
Lowflo installed a waterless urinal system one year ago. Since the installation we have reduced our water consumption and water charges considerably. Blockages, leaks and odours are a thing of the past. Since installation I have had no complaints from tenants which is good as it shows that people are very happy with the system. Service from Lowflo in my experience has been excellent. I would recommend this installation to anybody that is trying to reduce their water consumption and water charges.

"Lowflo rapidly responded to our call to deliver a professional, efficient & accurate survey, pinpointing the leak which in turn lead to negligible disruption to the plant or site operations...Lowflo would be our preferred choice for leak detection in the future"
