We have one goal: Saving the world’s water resources, with every flush. We manufacture the world's lowest water flush toilet, specifically for commercial / out-of-home use. Propelair uses only 1.5 litres of water per flush, much less than the UK average of 6-9 litres. Combining 1.5 litres of water and displaced air technology creates a powerful, high-performance flush which easily removes all waste with one flush. Washrooms generally account for around 90% of all water used in a commercial building. Because less water is needed, the Propelair system reduces the carbon footprint of the average toilet by up to 76% (by saving energy typically used at water treatment plants to process and pump water). Propelair reduces water and sewage bills by up to 60%, thereby paying for itself in just 1-3 years. In addition to reducing water, energy and bills, Propelair also eliminates aerosolised germs (including Covid-19) by up to 95% thanks to a closed-lid flush, creating a more hygienic and healthier washroom environment for users. The powerful air-flush removes 95% of bacteria inside the bowl and antimicrobial additives in the handle further help reduce germs. Propelair quickly refills in 30 seconds compared to conventional systems which take 2-3 minutes, reducing queues, especially during periods of high usage. Propelair's robust design makes it well suited for high traffic washrooms in both corporate and high-traffic spaces and as such maintenance costs are reduced. It can be retrofitted into existing drains, requiring little to no refurbishment prior to installation. Propelair’s rimless pan and side hinges make previously hard-to-clean areas easily accessible, ensuring a thorough cleaning process can be carried out. In every respect Propelair is superior - making it the commercial toilet of choice.
