New super loos for Paignton Zoo
South West Water has joined forces with Paignton Zoo Environmental Park to introduce leading-edge water conservation technology at the Park.
In a move designed to promote and encourage a more environmentally friendly approach to water usage, state of the art infra-red operated taps and other sensor operated equipment has recently been installed in the main toilets at the entrance to the Park.
The infra-red taps turn on when hands are placed beneath them and will automatically turn off when hands are removed. This minimises the amount of water used and prevents taps from being left running. The loos themselves are flushed by the flash of a hand in front of an infra-red sensor, which activates a hygienic and efficient flush of only six litres of water.
Water conservation graphics in the main entrance to the Park help spell out the water conservation story and show visitors how to save water and money at home and South West Water will also be marking World Environment Day on Sunday 5th June with the Park, promoting and selling water conservation products at reduced prices.
Jon Wood, South West Water's water conservation expert, said today, "We are only too pleased to have helped the Park with their initiative and hope many visitors will take home with them some of the water and money saving ideas they have seen.
