SHERIDAN, Wyo., January 11, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Summit 360 Research LLC, the creators of the Flow Across America water conservation education initiative, announces licensing availability of the WATERouter® home water recycling patent US9758955. It is estimated that a trillion gallons of freshwater are literally flushed down the toilet every year across the country. WATERouter® takes lightly used greywater from a nearby fixture, such as a sink, and reapplies it for flushing toilets. This device is unique in that it can be retrofitted to most toilets by homeowners without remodeling and without relying on electricity to operate, giving WATERouter® a potential market reach of over 300 million toilets across the U.S. alone.
Toilets are the single largest consumer of freshwater in a typical household accounting for 25%-30% of the water usage. With freshwater reserves at record lows in significant parts of the country, WATERouter® can help significantly reduce a household's freshwater footprint. Saving water also reduces our carbon footprint by reducing the associated energy used for desalination, filtering, transport and then treatment of the wastewater afterward. The WATERouter® prototype provides a proof-of-concept implementation of this patent. Visit www.summit360research.com to see a demonstration of its operation as well as a typical home installation.
