The conservation of water has become a requirement for many facilities, cities, counties and the government. This need is driven by three main reasons:
- the availability of water,
- current sewer capacity and
- rising costs or budget cuts.
Toilets and urinals are still flushed with potable water and it is estimated that up to 20% of the available drinking water in the world is flushed down the drain, wastefully. In addition, leakage of water delivery lines may add an additional 8% to the above. Waterless NoFlush™ urinals achieve zero water consumption. A Waterless NoFlush™ urinal saves up to 140.000 litres of drinkable water per year.
It can be estimated that there are approximately 1.8 million urinals installed in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Considering that a conventional urinal can use up to 140.000 litres of potable water per year, the use of water ads up to approximately 252 billion litres! 252 billion litres of drinkable water is equivalent to the water usage of 690.000 households or 2.7 million people per year. This vast amount of outflow to the sewer and septic systems can be eliminated and will not run into our natural waterways and oceans.
