Cistermiser‘s EasyflushEVO washroom flushing control valve solution has been named Water Saving Commercial Product of the Year at the Energy Savings Awards 2022, adding to a sustainability award it recently received from the Bathroom Manufacturers’ Association (BMA).
Managing director, Richard Braid, comments: “Being recognised once again as a ‘best in class’ product with this Energy Savings Award win, is testament to the hard work and intelligent product design that our teams have been laser focused on in recent months. For us, it’s all about sustainability and energy savings, and we are so proud of the way in which EasyflushEVO is playing a significant role in tackling water loss and eradicating the #leakyloo challenge.
“We all know as an industry how much water is wasted through leaking toilets. According to experts Waterwise, a leaking toilet wastes between 215 and 400 litres of clean drinking water on average every day. Between 5 and 8 per cent of toilets are estimated to be leaking, adding up to around 400 million litres of water leaking from UK toilets every day. Against a backdrop of the climate crisis and the Road to Net Zero, losses like these are clearly unsustainable.
“The EasyflushEVO is our latest addition to the Cistermiser product portfolio, and its revolutionary flushing valve solves the problem of leaking toilet cisterns and saves up to 78,475 litres of water per unit per year. It achieves this by bringing together the previously unattainable benefits of non-touch and leak-free flushing. The patented flush design means there is no flushing seal below the waterline, so unlike traditional flush valves, it will not leak due to debris, scale, or seal degradation.
“We’re excited to see how far we can push ourselves through innovation to take our sustainability solutions to the next level, providing water and energy savings to commercial washrooms across the UK. Being recognised and winning industry awards like these spur us on in this mission.”
