A growing number of schools and institutions in the UK are successfully managing
to save millions of litres of fresh water a year.
These environmentally aware establishments have placed eco-cube into their
washrooms and as a result are saving precious fresh water and also saving considerable
sums of money in the process.
eco-cube is a proven system that uses microbial technology converting standard
washroom urinals or troughs into water-less urinals. The unique system uses
naturally occurring microbes and does not require any regular flushing water
to convert any washroom into a healthier and more hygienic environment. The
active eco-cube microbes are highly effective as they naturally disrupt the
processes that normally cause the familiar problems with urinals.
Scott Johnston, Director of eco-works ltd, the company that manufactures eco-cube
says " The average urinal in a washroom flushes 151,000 litres of fresh
water a year. This can be cut to zero when eco-cube is used. Schools, local
authorities and businesses do not realise just how much water wastage there
is in the washroom, particularly when they add up the number of flushing urinals
in their washrooms. With the rising cost of water and sewage rates in the UK,
establishments are realising the considerable financial savings that can be
One school that has been using eco-cube in all of their washrooms is St James
School for Senior Boys in Twickenham, Middlesex. With 300 pupils in attendance,
the washrooms at the school are busy places.
Before the eco-cubes were used, St James School was flushing fresh water every
15 minutes into the urinals to try to keep them clean, even through the night.
"We were using vast quantities of water to try to keep our boys washrooms
clean, however since we have been using eco-cube we have cut down our water
usage to zero and as a result the water and sewage savings are considerable.
We do not get the foul smells that were emitted from the drains anymore and
in fact we have nothing but positive comments from both the school staff and
the cleaners regarding the improved state of the washrooms" says John Hay,
Property Manager of St James School.
eco-cube is helping similar schools, councils, and businesses across the country,
small and large to save water. From pubs, clubs, shopping centres, offices to
institutions with hundreds of urinals.
Implementation of the eco-cube is immediate with no urinal modifications required
- other than to turn off the running water to the urinals. eco-cube works effectively
as the friendly bacteria break down lime scale, uric scale and ammonic salts
naturally ensuring there are no bad odours or scale build up that could cause
future blockages or smells.
eco-cube works without the use of any harmful or hazardous chemicals and is
100% environmentally friendly.
