A running toilet can waste up to 1100 litres of water per day

A running toilet can waste up to 1,100 liters of water in 24 hours. That is the equivalent of 10 standard sized bathtubs. And most running toilets go undetected for weeks.

Running toilets can often be easily fixed, but most residents do not realise their toilet is running until they see their water bill.

If a cistern has been leaking for weeks or even months, the water consumption can be more than doubled, and for some residents, this might mean they are unable to pay their water bill and will have to leave their apartment.

How the running toilet service works

Brunata’s running toilet service monitors the water supply to the cistern. If constant flow is detected in the hose, you can receive a notification by e-mail, if you have opted for automatic notifications in Brunata Online.

Reduce unintentional water consumption
By locating and fixing running toilets, you and your residents can avoid water waste and soaring water bills.

Quickly locate running toilets
A running cistern is not always visible to the naked eye. With the intelligent toilet sensors, you can be sure that running toilets are detected quickly, and you receive a notification by e-mail.

Automatically notify the right people
You can add up to 8 e-mail addresses to the notification list, which is convenient if e.g. the facility management team need to be notified of the water waste as well.
