Despite the vital role it plays in effective sanitation, the toilet has not fundamentally changed since the late 1800s. With South African toilets averaging 12 litres per flush and accounting for up to 70 – 85% of commercial water use in buildings it’s easy to see why traditional toilet systems have become inefficient for modern use.

Previous efforts to reduce the amount of water used for toilet flushing have had performance and convenience implications and in the main, received poor reviews from users. Recognising the need for an alternative solution which uses less water and performs better inspired the development of PropelAir.

Propelair® has a two-section cistern; one for air and one for water. Before Flushing, the lid is closed to form a seal

When the flush sensor is activated water enters the pan to wash it, followed by air from the unique patented pump. The air cannot escape due to the sealed lid. This pushes out the entire contents of the pan to give a powerful, reliable flush. The remaining water fills the water trap. The flush is completed in 3 seconds with the toilet ready to be re-flushed in 20-30 seconds.
