We recently travelled to Bunratty Castle in County Clare, where our products have been introduced to all toilet facilities within the castle. Eco-tourism is a growing market in the travel industry, with many visitors to Ireland becoming conscious of more earth-friendly choices – cultural heritage sites focused on saving water show responsibility and reap the goodwill of consumers. Twenty three urinals have been fitted with our waterless key valve system, which pays for itself by reducing water usage and improving hygiene.

Eighty taps in bathroom facilities across the park have been fitted with a variety of aerators, offering a very easy, cost effective way to bring down water use and costs. These aerators create a controlled sharp or foamy flow which is much more efficient than that of a standard tap.

Another measure introduced to bathrooms came in the form of cistern displacement bags we placed in fifty toilets around Bunratty Castle. These bags are inexpensive and reduce the amount of water a cistern uses so that no water is wasted.

All in all, this constitutes a successful change in Bunratty’s water management strategy and one which is already showing results and should continue to do so in the coming years.
