    URIMAT waterless urinals are simple to install and typically save users around 100,000 litres of water per urinal per year, so both the financial and water savings can be very substantial indeed meaning that clients realise quick return on investment. Here are some examples of projects that we have worked on and savings that customers have achieved.

    A global software company HQ in Surrey saved £10,000 per year and achieved pay back in 18 months

That means the company was flushing away over 5.5 million litres of water per year.
