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"

My son recently lost his water supply to his house. The Corporation established that there was a leak and that leak was within his property boundary. I have had some experience over the years in water supply networks and so my son asked me for assistence. I established from past experience where the leak was likely to be and Lowflo were brought in to trace the leak. The Lowflo operative traced the leak to a point approx. 30 metres away from where I thought the leak was most likely to be.
He lifted a paving slab and dug down and somewhat to my surprise that was exactly where the leak was. He repaired the pipe, pressure tested the system to ensure that there was not a second leak and checked that the water tanks were filling and that all toilets etc were working. All in all Lowflo did an excellent job and saved a hugh amount of digging.
I would have no hestitation in recommending Lowflo for the tracing of water leaks.
