Provider of commercial washroom water management solutions, Cistermiser, won the award for Water Efficiency at the recent Bathroom Manufacturers Association’s Sustainability Awards 2022 for its EasyflushEVO product.
EasyflushEVO ‘brings together the previously unattainable benefits of non-touch and leak-free flushing’. The judges praised its ‘new and novel approach’ to tackling water loss and eradicating the ‘leaky loo’ issue. Richard Braid, Cistermiser’s MD, said: “Cistermiser has spent over a decade innovating and providing products that help Facilities managers, local authorities, NHS Trusts, and building owners, and it is so rewarding to have the team’s hard work on EasyflushEVO recognised by a panel of independent judges.
“We all know how much water is wasted through leaking toilets. According to Waterwise, a leaking toilet wastes between 215 and 400 litres of clean drinking water on average every day, and 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 range, and its revolutionary flushing valve solves the problem of leaking toilet cisterns, and saves 78,475 litres of water per unit per year. This was a huge inspiration for the development of the EasyflushEVO, and although it might not single-handedly solve the ‘leaky loos’ problem we have in this country, it goes a long way to raising standards and awareness. 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.”
Tom Reynolds, CEO of the BMA, praised the work Cistermiser is doing: “Cistermiser has been committed to reducing water wastage and it is so exciting to see how far the company is willing to push itself through innovation to take product performance sustainability to the next level.”
