Waterless Urinal

Waterless Urinal
A waterless urinal can save over 10,000 gallons of water per year compared with a 1.0-gallon-per-flush model. While most waterless urinals use an oil-filled cartridge as a sort of “P trap” to keep out odors, Neo-Metro uses a “duck bill” diaphragm for less maintenance, but you’ll need to check with local codes to see if it is compliant. These urinals come in stainless steel as well as black, white, or fuchsia powder coat.

Stealth Toilet

Stealth Toilet
The Stealth Ultra High Efficiency Toilet uses only 0.8 gallons per flush (gpf) compared with 1.6 gpf for most low-flush toilets. Stealth uses a patented vacuum-assist technology to pull waste down the trapway from below. Much quieter than pressure-assist toilets, the Stealth is available with either an ADA-compliant elongated bowl or a round-front bowl. This residential-use toilet has a 10-year warranty on parts and a lifetime warranty on the china.

Water-Efficient Faucet Aerators

Water-Efficient Faucet Aerators
Low-flow faucet aerators can significantly reduce the amount of water used in buildings and the amount of energy required to heat that water. Neoperl, the only U.S. manufacturer of faucet aerators, offers a wide selection of faucet aerators, some with flow rates of 1 gallon per minute or less. Neoperl aerators not only save water but can also be used to even out water pressure between faucets in multistory hotels and dormitories.

WeatherTRAK Irrigation Control

WeatherTRAK Irrigation Control
WeatherTRAK irrigation control systems automatically create watering schedules based on plant and soil types, sun exposure, slope, and other factors. Watering is adjusted automatically each day depending on analyzed NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) weather data received from HydroPoint’s ET Everywhere satellite communications service, eliminating the need for a standalone weather station. These systems can be accessed via the Internet and are compatible with sensors that override watering instructions in case of rain.

Low-Flow Pre-Rinse Spray Valve

Low-Flow Pre-Rinse Spray Valve
Some commercial kitchen spray valves consume 5 gallons per minute (gpm) of water to remove food from dishes, wasting water and the energy used to heat it. T&S Brass B-0107-C low-flow pre-rinse spray valve uses only 1.24 gpm to clean dishes and requires only 1 pound of force at the handle, helping reduce hand fatigue. It is also available as a retrofit for the company’s B-0126 spray valve.
