Below are the most common questions asked about the Flush & Save Water device.
How does this valve save me money?

What size does the flush and save valve come in?
The flush and save valve comes in 4 inches or 110mm and will fit all toilet pan connectors.
What is the life span of the flush and save valve?

How does the flush and save valve work?
Under normal conditions when you reduce the number of litres used to flush a toilet the waste will not travel very far and has the tendency to backflow into the toilet. By fitting the flush and save valve the backflow problem is eliminated leaving you with a clean fresh toilet after every flush.
I see the flush and save has a metal pin and spring - can this rust?
The pin and spring are made from marine stainless steel – the same steel used in the salty sea. It is guaranteed never to rust.
