Propelair has developed and patented what we believe is the world’s lowest water-flush toilet system helping commercial customers reduce costs, their impact on the environment and improve hygiene.
Toilets waste vast amounts of clean water. This is not only costly but with 1 in 9 people worldwide lacking access to safe water and an increasing number of regions being chronically affected by drought, this is an urgent social problem.
Propelair’s innovative solution saves water through using air to propel just 1.5 litres of water per flush, into existing drains, compared to 6-9 litres per flush for conventional toilets. As well as enabling a superior flush and massive water savings, it saves money, reduces water processing (thereby saving carbon), is quick to refill and is more hygienic than a conventional toilet, reducing aerosolised germs, including COVID-19, by 95%.
The system is designed for commercial use, so maintenance is also significantly reduced.
Propelair's core business is the innovation and design of low water flush toilets.
We use a range of trusted suppliers in Thailand, China and the UK and have a global network of fully committed distribution partners who install and maintain the toilets on our behalf. This allows us to scale rapidly with little growth in overheads.
We support our partners using our sales and marketing teams, whilst our in-house technical team ensure our partners are up to date with the latest innovations and best practices.
Currently our primary revenue source is the sale and installation of toilets, supplemented by maintenance and spares income.
However, our plan is to launch a smart connected toilet in the next 12 months allowing us to roll-out a "Savings-as-a-Service" model where customers pay a monthly fee, instead of the usual up front cost of the toilet, and receive year round maintenance, support and real time analytics. This will allow us to capture longer term, contracted revenues.
