Going waterless could cut facilities management sector urinal running costs by more than half at the same time as slashing CO2

Facilities managers and businesses could slash CO2 footprints and save over £1,200 on every three urinals on their books, if they switched to waterless technology. The findings were released by Smarti Environmental, the UK’s leading waterless urinal business, to coincide with Water Saving Week 2022 (23-27 May).

The savings are possible with the installation of Smarti Environmental’s newly launched eco-friendly Vortex triple seal valve (TSV), which has been designed to cut urinal water bills by over half, at the same time as dramatically lowering carbon footprints, eliminating bad urinal smells, blockages and eradicating the spread of infections caused by flushing urinals.

The smart-tech, eco-friendly, retro-fit Vortex valve ends the need for water in urinals, saving on average 100,000 litres of clean water and 105kg CO2 per urinal, per year. It also prevents airborne infections caused by spray during flushing, which has been shown to spread 500,000 germs per inch, per flush, landing on skin, surfaces and clothing, spreading viruses including Covid-19, influenza and norovirus.

The Vortex TSV, which fits 98% of all urinals, enables businesses to retain their existing urinal bowls while cutting annual running costs by over 50%, compared to conventional water-flush alternatives.

Confirmed as the fastest flowing waterless urinal solution on the market, the fully recyclable, British-manufactured, hygienic one-way multi valve system, traps all odours so that the foul drain smells become a thing of the past. No other waterless urinal technology is as effective.

The Vortex valve accelerates the flow of urine down into the drainpipe, and includes an eco-friendly bio-block enzyme ring and integrated bio-tablet that breaks down uric acid and bio film proteins, and makes urine PH neutral – a world first!. This prevents costly and damaging back-fill flooding and blocked pipes.
