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 employed Lowflo to investigate an underground leak in a domestic heating system. There was no evidence of the location of the leak on the floor surfaces yet Lowflo were able to locate the leak very quickly using their gas tracer system and the leak was repaired with minimum disruption. We found them very professional to deal with and very knowledgeable in their field of expertise"
Niall from SNC Engineering
Don’t make the same mistake I did this summer, I was lured by a smaller cheaper company when Lowflo had established their reputation previously onsite. Two months later, after digging two huge holes searching for the leak, Lowflo were called to salvage the situation and found the leak within one hour.
You really do get what you pay for; I can’t recommend the company highly enough for their professionalism and service.
