Paul Marshall, principal at Emmaus Christian School first came across the Uridan water-free urinals when his architect, Small Quinton Coleman recommended them to him.
As the principal of the school, one of his roles is to educate the next generation about the environment and build a sense of responsibility in the students of his school.
The philosophy at the school is one of social conscience and caring for the environment. They have installed recycled plastic benches, and have separate bins for the recycling of the students’ food scraps. The replacement of cisterns with Uridan water-free urinals has reduced water consumption at the school by a conservatively estimated 40,000 litres per year.
Currently the school has four 1.2m Uridan water-free urinal troughs in the boys’ washroom which have been very successful. The water-free urinals have been easy to maintain and keep clean, they look great on the wall and the new water-free urinals have helped to build water awareness amongst the student groups. The staff, parents and children of the school are pleased to know that they are contributing to the water saving in the community.
In the future Paul Marshall would like to install more Uridan water-free urinals and be in a position whereby he can measure the schools water consumption more accurately.
Uridan water-free urinals are supplied by Watersave Australia .
