Saving water has become a necessity. How better to help with water conservation in the future, than by teaching the children of today the importance of doing so.

Currently included in the curriculum are an increasing number of topics around environmental sustainability. It is a natural progression to expand this to include REAL things that the children can do to help conserve our resources. Environmentally friendly technologies are an integral part of this teaching by providing technologies that the children can see, touch and use themselves.

Enviro-Tech products help reduce water use by up to 70%. Not only is this is good for the environment but it also helps cut costs in the supply and treatment of water and the management of waste water. This translates to real savings to the environment and equates to real cost savings for the school.

Water Saving Products

Sensor Taps

Our sensor taps are ideal for use in the school environment. They shut off automatically, thus saving water and associated power costs and improve hygiene with no touch operation. All Enviro-Tech sensor taps are simply on/off i.e. when hands are in the activation zone, water will flow and as soon as you remove them they will stop. In addition, the automatic cut off feature (after 60 seconds of run time) means that it is impossible to leave the taps running, thereby eliminating any possibility of flooded bathrooms.

The cost is sometimes seen as the prohibitive factor in installing sensor taps in schools; Enviro-Tech offers a wide range of styles at affordable prices, we can offer quotes on quantity and a real option for the latest in green water saving technology at an affordable price. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Our Recommendations

Two models that have consistently proven themselves in the harsh education sector are the ET2-10DC and ET2-32 both durable, cost effective models, great for improving the hygiene in your school.

Things to Consider

Enviro-Tech sensor taps can be battery only (4 x AA) or mains power with battery backup. When run on battery only and when using good quality long life batteries, they will last up to 110,000 cycles. We find that in a school environment, this is approx. 12months but up to 3 years depending on use.

We do recommend that if vandalism could be an issue, control boxes are concealed in vanities or in wall cavities. Enviro-Tech can supply well priced stainless steel access panels if required.

Infrared sensors are susceptible to reflective light and can be set off by sunlight, high visibility clothing or more rarely, stainless steel sinks troughs. This can usually be mitigated by correct product selection, please contact us for advice on your best options under these circumstances

Sensor Urinals

Enviro-Tech offers the most water efficient urinal option on the market with only 0.8L of water per flush for an individual urinal.

We understand that budgets for school projects are tight. We have 5 and 6 Star WELS rated flush valves available and are certain that one of them will allow you to update water efficiency on existing urinals and still save money.

The three options are:

  • ET3-12 - Infrared sensor urinal flush valve with stainless steel faceplate and 09.L of water per flush (5 Star WELS)
  • ET3-M - Urine sensing 'SMART Demand' urinal flush valve, only 0.8L of water per flush and 6 Star WELS rated. All part concealed, nothing visible in the bathroom
  • ET3-R - Ceiling mounted urinal flush valve, can flush multiple or slab urinals. 0.8L per flush for a single urinal

Sensor Toilets

The ET4-7 is an exceptionally cost effective unit. The hygienic no touch sensor toilet flush valve is plumbed directly into the mains water supply, eliminating the cost involved in purchasing and installing cisterns.

Only the stainless steel faceplate is visible in the bathroom, simply remove the magnetic faceplate to access all parts for ease of maintenance. Can be battery operated only or mains power with battery back-up

Benefiting from a 4 Star WELS rating and features a high-tech sensor that detects how long a user is in the activation zone to determine whether to activate ½ flush or full flush on exit. It also features a manual override button and is ideal for accessible bathrooms.

Things to consider

This unit is plumbed directly to mains pressure water supply via a 25mm pipe. This product will only be suitable if the building hydraulics are right, you MUST have a minimum dynamic water pressure of 350kPa for correct product function. We recommend that you discuss these requirements with a Hydraulics Consultant prior to specification.
