Dropflush is a valve made with elastic materials and equipped with an activation mechanism that allows it to remain hermetically closed in the rest state and to open in the desired direction in the presence of pressure, and then return to the initial condition. The hermetic closure prevents the rise of unpleasant smells and insects / pests while its elasticity allows the passage of organic waste with a reduced use of water.

Dropflush replaces the siphon and eliminates stagnant water.

The technology currently present in toilets is the siphon, a curved pipe that uses stagnant water, making it perform the function of a hydraulic plug. The standing water allows the passage of organic waste and prevents the rise of unpleasant smells (mephitic gases). However, the siphon and the presence of stagnant water have many disadvantages, including the fact that they require a large use of water for the discharge of just the urine.

Every day about 141 billion liters of drinking water are discharged into the toilet due to the technological limit of the siphon, thanks to Dropflush the water consumption will be reduced by 90%.

On average, the current toilets use 5 liters for liquids and 9 for solids, instead for the functioning of Dropflush it will be sufficient to drain 400 ml of water for liquids, mostly necessary for rinsing the toilet, and 2 liters of water (or the quantity minimum imposed by state regulation) for solid waste.

Calculating that approximately one person uses the toilet 9 times a day for liquid waste and 1 time a day for solid waste, it is concluded that currently only one person consumes 54 liters of water per day (5l x 9 = 45l + 9l = 54 ).

With Dropflush, water consumption is reduced to 5.6 liters per day (400ml x 9 + 2L = 5.6L).
