Sloan Plumbing Products Help School Save Water

Benjamin Frankin High SchoolSloan has helped a New Orleans high school make its restrooms more water and energy efficient by donating plumbing products.

Renovating the restrooms at Benjamin Franklin High School in New Orleans consisted of structural changes as well as cosmetic improvements. Because the building is a completely cement structure, it didn’t easily lend itself to construction changes. As such, there were challenges involved including reworking dropping electric lines and reorganizing some of the plumbing.

The commercial plumbing company donated Sloan SOLIS flushometers and other products to make two bathrooms water-conserving and energy-efficient. By switching from 3.5 gpf to a 1.6 gpf toilet flushometers, the school achieved a 54 percent water reduction and an 83 percent reduction from 1.5 gpf to 0.25 gpf urinal flushometers.

In other efforts to make bathrooms more water efficient, the Anschutz Entertainment Group, which runs the Staples Center in Los Angeles, last year replaced all 178 of its urinals with waterless urinals, saving more than 7 million gallons a year and $28,200 annually.

One thought on “Sloan Plumbing Products Help School Save Water

  1. The so-called waterless urinals three sound great saving will not water but I wonder what native environmental aspects these devices have. I mean, saving water isn’t the be all and end all of making a given facility sustainable.
