Royal® Reclaimed Flushometer
A flushometer designed to withstand the harsh conditions of reclaimed water.
Reclaimed Water In A Commercial Setting
As drought-stricken regions around the country continue to face water shortages, municipalities are increasing the use of reclaimed water to help preserve potable resources.
Long used for agricultural and ornamental landscape irrigation, reclaimed water is ideally suited for flushing toilets and urinals in a wide array of commercial facilities. Using reclaimed water in these applications can save thousands of gallons each year. However, using reclaimed water is not without its challenges. The higher chemical concentrations than potable water, reclaimed water can damage plumbing components that use yellow brass (high zinc content) and organic rubber, potentially leading to increased maintenance requirements and premature failure.
Includes the required wall plate and a purple wall flange to let users know reclaimed water is in use.
All organic rubber has been replaced with synthetic compounds.
The Color of Reclaimed
Interior components are purple to let maintenance personnel know the flushometer is designed for reclaimed water.
Critical components, including cover, valve body, control stop and sweat solder kit, are made of semi-red brass.
Optional purple handle provides additional indication of reclaimed water use.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that commercial buildings use only 14% of all potable water.
Reclaimed water is more aggressive than potable water in systems due to the chemical content of the water. Sloan® flushometers use a high copper, semi-red brass to withstand these harsh conditions, as opposed to a yellow brass that is higher in zinc, used by most other flushometer manufacturers.
