Falcon Waterfree Technologies launches the Retrofit Hybrid Urinal, through partner Sloan Valve Company, which will help California businesses saves thousands of gallons of water annually and mitigate current drought conditions in the region.
Los Angeles, March 23, 2016 As a company committed to changing the world by developing revolutionary, technology-driven restroom products that conserve our Earth’s precious fresh water supply and to using the power of our business and products to help solve local social and environmental problems, Falcon Waterfree Technologies is proud to announce the launch of the new Hybrid Retrofit Urinal with US partner Sloan, the world’s leading manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems.
The new model, HYB-1000-RET, offers all the features of the revolutionary original new construction Hybrid Urinal, launched in 2015, including: maximum LEED credits, minimal water and sewage costs and automatic drain line rinsing.
“We are proud to launch such a revolutionary water conserving product, especially at a time where water conservation is so crucial in the many drought stricken parts of the country. Installation of this high-performance water conservation technology, along with our waterfree urinal technology, will help realize immediate and substantial water savings,” stated Simon A. Davis, President & CEO of Falcon.
Like the original Hybrid Urinal, the Hybrid Retrofit Urinal uses Falcon’s proprietary and market leading Velocity cartridge technology and flushing system, called Jetrinse Solution Technology, which uses a carefully directed high volume flow of water to rinse the drain line every 72 hours to prevent clogs, odor-causing build up and minimize maintenance requirements. With this timed flush, all Hybrid Urinals use only about 100 gallons of water per year, regardless of the number of users.
“Sloan Hybrid Retrofit Urinals consume zero water for flushing and ensure proper maintenance with minimal water usage,” says Patrick Boyle, director of corporate sustainability at Sloan. “This green-building, retrofit version offers reduced natural resource consumption, enhanced user hygiene and cost savings on water, sewage and maintenance—improving the bottom line and return on investment.”
Sloan is the world’s leading manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems and has been in operation since 1906. Headquartered in Franklin Park, Illinois, USA, the company is at the forefront of the green building movement and provides smart sustainable restroom solutions by manufacturing water-efficient products such as flush valves, electronic faucets, sink systems, soap dispensing systems, and vitreous china fixtures for commercial, industrial and institutional markets worldwide.
