Using the toilet involves the waste of 141 billion liters of water per day, how?


50% of the water we consume daily is used for flushing the toilet. An average person uses the toilet from 5 to 9 times a day, with a consumption of about 8 liters of water per use. If we take into account the world population that has access to a toilet, an estimated 141 billion liters of water wasted daily.



Water is part of a cycle, so is it possible to say that it is not wasted?


Water is part of a continuous cycle, but rain is not constant and the continuous flow of water is guaranteed by the aquifers. It is known that for years we have been taking more water from the groundwater than it is recharged with the water cycle and with the rain. The problem exists and must be addressed by reducing consumption: agricultural, industrial and human. We have a simple solution that does not ask people for sacrifices and changes in habits.


How does Dropflush work?


The Dropflush valve replaces the hydraulic cap by eliminating the siphon and stagnant water. This ensures savings of about 90% of the water currently used for the utilization of normal toilets, with a consequent saving in the bill of 30%. The absence of water in the toilet makes it more hygienic and easier to clean. Furthermore, thanks to the combination of specific jets and technologically advanced materials, the toilet that adopts Dropflush technology can become almost self-cleaning. This new technology also guarantees protection against insects and pests and increases protection against the ascent of mephitic gases.




How is Dropflush inspired by the human body?


The human body has a very complex but perfectly functional water system inside, even if it does not have a hydraulic cap. Inspired by the functioning of valves found in nature, we have designed, patented and developed valves, which differ according to the required application, united by the fact that they are made of materials with high elastic capacity (mainly LSR silicone). These valves are equipped with an activation mechanism that allows them to remain hermetically closed in the absence of a pressure delta and to open in the presence of a pressure in the desired direction (to allow the passage of liquids and solids waste), then returning to the initial condition thanks to the elastic capacity alone.




Why is Dropflush more hygienic than ordinary toilets?


The toilet becomes much more hygienic by the lack of stagnant water, which constitutes a transmission vehicle for germs and bacteria and which makes it difficult to clean the submerged areas. In addition, Dropflush will stop the use of the unsanitary toilet brush that can be replaced by a high-pressure sprayer, which is much more hygienic and able to further reduce the amount of water needed for discharging.



How does Dropflush affect water purification?


Dropflush positively affects the water purification process in two ways:

- it helps the natural purification process: the Dropflush technology allows to take less water from rivers, increasing their flow and general health. The greater is the flow of a watercourse, the greater is its ability to self-purify.

- it simplifies the purification process of the appropriate plants: the use of a small quantity of water for discharging waste causes less diluted sewage to reach the sewage treatment plants, which makes the work of the plants more effective and less expensive. By adopting Dropflush we will save on purification costs and the water returned to nature will be of superior quality, for the benefit of all.




How much does Dropflush consume?


The dropflush system for optimal operation requires: 300 ml of water for the discharge of liquid waste, mostly used to rinse the inside of the toilet and at least two liters (or the minimum quantity required by the regulations of the respective state) for the solid waste discharge.

Dropflush increases efficiency and allows further water savings if combined with a high pressure hydrobrush, an instrument already present on the market.



How much does it cost to switch to the Dropflush system?


The only cost for commissioning Dropflush is the cost of replacing the toilet and possibly the toilet cistern. Given that the water savings made possible by Dropflush result in saving in the bill equal to 30%, the cost of replacing the old toilet will be quickly amortized.




To adopt Dropflush, do you need to renovate the bathroom?


No, Dropflush is absolutely compatible with plumbing systems used in homes. It will only be necessary to replace the toilet.




Does Dropflush need maintenance?


The Dropflush valve is made of LSR silicone, a material that makes it resistant to mechanical wear and also to the chemical agents contained in the products that are normally poured into the toilet. As for limescale, we have solved the problem thanks to the geometry of the lower part of the valve, which will ensure that any possible incrustations will form only in areas where they do not cause damage or hinder the proper functioning of the system. However, the valve is replaceable.


Where can you buy the toilet with Dropflush technology?


The toilet with Dropflush technology is not yet available on the market. We intend to sell our valves to the major toilet manufacturers, which will be responsible for manufacturing the toilets according to the technology specifications. Your support is important to show these companies that our mission is shared, so that it will be possible to make our technology affordable in the shortest possible time.
