During its first month on a Sydney construction site, one Washbox has saved 10,000 litres of water. Without Washbox all trades wash their tools under running water taken from the mains supply. The water flow is generally uncontrolled and unmetered.
Washbox uses its own water supply and allows all wet trades, ( trades who would normally wash their tools under running water) to use the Washbox at the same time! After the Washbox automatically removes the waste from the washwater, the water is recycled so it can be used for further washing.
The construction company in Sydney Australia instructs all its wet trades to wash their hand tools in the Washbox, which can be located where the work is happening on site. The Washbox does not need to be connected to the mains water supply so it is totally portable and can be moved around onsite as required with a pallet trolley or forklift.
Washbox records and report water use and savings to give the constructor visibility over these important environmental metrics that have not been previously available.
By controlling water flow and recycling 100% of the washwater used, one Washbox has just reported water savings of 10,000 litres during a 4 week period on one construction site.
