South Africa loses R7.2 billion every year due to water leaks. In addition, according to the Department of Water & Sanitation, and the World Health Organization (WHO), South Africa’s water consumption might exceed availability of supply by 2025.
The toilet is the single largest water consumer in the house consuming approximately 30% of the entire usage. Due to the nature of toilet leaks, many users may not be aware of the leak. In conventional toilets with a leak, the cistern is continually filled to replace the leaking water, causing a substantial amount of water loss. Fixing leaks can save homeowners more than 10% on their water bills, subject to their water tariff. The WHC Leak-Less Valve™, prevents 70% of the water loss in the case of a toilet leak.
“My grandmother in Ga-Rankuwa, a township north west of Tshwane, used to have such a leaking toilet. Instead of complaining about it, I decided to find a solution which lead to the invention of the WHC Leak-Less Valve™”.
