It operates using just 1.5 litres: A two-section cistern separates the air from water.
The flush process of the Propelair toilet is similar to that of an airplane toilet – except, instead of sucking the waste, our toilet propels air into the bowl.
Hence why we are called Propelair!
Propelair reduces your carbon footprint
Because less water is needed, the Propelair low-flush toilet also saves energy:
The electrical energy is saved at the water treatment plants. By having less water to treat and then pump to customers, you reduce the carbon footprint of your toilet by up to 80%.
Propelair lowers washroom operation costs
So by using less water and less energy, Propelair lowers your water and sewage bills by up to 60%. This way, the Propelair low-flush toilet pays for itself in just 1-3 years in most cases.
Propelair eliminates germs and Covid-19 aerosols
In addition to reducing water, energy and bills, Propelair also eliminates aerosolised germs by up to 95% thanks to a closed-lid flush. This includes coronavirus aerosols. And thanks to the powerful air-flush, 99.99% of bacteria inside the bowl are removed.
Propelair saves water, energy and money – while improving washroom hygiene and user experience.
The idea for the Propelair low-flush toilet was first conceived almost three decades ago – but we really started to gain recognition since 2017, when we received our first round of funding from Investec and Earth Capital and restructured our management.
We are now a fast-growth cleantech start-up with a solid client base all over the UK and South Africa.
Today, we have an office and a manufacturing site in Basildon (Essex), a distributor in South Africa, several UK distributor companies, 23 employees and a practical, necessary product that allows your business to meet your environmental targets while significantly reducing maintenance costs and improving hygiene.
