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.

After seeing a huge increase in water charges in the last quarter I knew we had a problem.We turned everything off at night and monitored our meter readings at close and first thing in the morning, still we had a lot of water consumption. I was at a loss...then I called Lowflo who came and conducted a water audit on our store, they found an oven(out of use) that was the still consuming water. They were extremely professional in how they approached and handled our problem to get to the root of it quite quickly. They also gave us a lot of advice on how to save even more water, saving money and the environment!
Ken, Eurospar Dalkey.
I had a leak on my water mains and called Lowflo to take care of the problem. Lowflo's engineer arrived on time and located the leak very quickly. I was very pleased with his work. He was very neat, with minimal disruption to the floor in the wet room. I found him to be very courteous. All in all I was very happy with his work. Thank you very much. Evelyn from Donaghmede."
