Falcon is the leading waterless urinal system provider in the world.
On average, each Falcon Waterfree urinal saves up to 40,000 gallons
(151,000 liters) or more of fresh water per year. Since the system is
waterless, no energy is used to source, transport or treat this water.
Falcon Waterfree urinals do not produce carbon dioxide emissions as a
byproduct of its treatment. Finally, by reducing total load on treatment
plants, the waterless urinal system can reduce the need for costly
water treatment capacity and reduce the incidence of overflow events
at treatment facilities. Falcon Waterfree urinals are also economically
advantageous. Each Falcon Waterfree urinal saves 100 percent of
the water flowing through traditional flush urinals, and therefore, 100
percent of the water and related sewer charges. There is very little
maintenance cost on a waterless urinal, as there are no moving parts
and no flushometer.
