Falcon Waterfree Technologies was formed with a vision: to promote conservation of the Earth's precious supply of fresh water and support sustainable resource management by becoming the leading urinal system provider in the world. Since then, acceptance and interest in waterfree urinal systems has grown as the world's leadership has adopted a greater sense of urgency about finding solutions for a future where fresh water may be less available and certainly more costly.
A Proven Solution to the Growing Water Crisis
Our system can be a major contributor to the world's environmental health. As much as 5% of fresh water consumed is currently used to carry away urine. Each Falcon Waterfree urinal typically saves an average of 40,000 gallons (151,000 liters) of fresh water per year. This amount of water does not need to be transported to the urinal or away from it to the water treatment facility, saving energy. No energy need be used to treat this water, nor does it produce carbon dioxide emissions as a byproduct of its treatment. Finally, by reducing total load on treatment plants, the Falcon Waterfree system can reduce the need for costly water treatment capacity and reduce the incidence of overflow events at treatment facilities.
At the same time it contributes to our environmental well-being, the Falcon system is economically advantageous. It saves 100% of the water going through urinals, and therefore, 100% of the water and sewer charges. There is very little maintenance cost on a Falcon urinal as there are no moving parts and no flushometer. Drain lines remain free of calcification as no hard water is running through them. The only maintenance is an easy change of the cartridge, performed approximately three to four times per year.
