Comparative Analysis - Waterless Urinal Systems vs Flushed Wall Urinal



Water consumption - Going waterless vs flushed male urinals


Across all Australian states, any water consumption during a year which is over 1kL (or 1,000 litres) a day is charged between $1 - $1.50 per kL , charge from state to state varies. As water usage increases, so does the charge per kilolitre.


If one male urinal is averaging 100 flushes a day, the consumption of that ONE urinal per day is about 380 litres, or 138,700 litres a year and water cost would average around $185 per year. More flushes per urinal means higher water consumption and water cost.


Aside from the water consumption, water companies also charge establishments sewer usage costs. The more wastewater a commercial establishment disposes, the higher the bill. The price per 1kL of wastewater discharged normally exceeds $1. Sydney Water calculates the sewer usage charge at $1.296 per Kilolitre of water usage.

* Calculation based on approximate of 100 uses per day per urinal
Important Note:
- The figure specified above is based on a conservative estimate of   around 100 uses per day on a water-efficient wall-hung type urinal. Stainless steel floor type urinals consume more water (up to 10 litres per flush) therefore water usage is higher.

- In other commercial establishments (ie, pubs, hotels, schools etc) , the average use of each urinal per day easily exceeds 500 uses per day, therefore in more heavy-traffic establishments, bigger savings can be achieved in both water bills and water consumption by switching to Cleanviro.


Economic and environment benefits
- The efficacy of one cleanviro tablet on average use would last between 3-6 weeks, depending on how heavy the usage is
- Equivalent to around 7,500 flushes or 50,000 litres of fresh water saved by just one cleanviro tablet.
- On average use of 100 flushes a day, savings of more than $1,000 a year per urinal and more than 450,000 litres of precious water is saved each year PER URINAL
