Falcon partner, Acualogica, has donated all of the waterfree urinals and ultra-efficient toilets to Carara National Park in Costa Rica. Proparques, a Costa Rican NGO founded by Acualogica’s founder Steve Aronson, is opening the first universally accessible trail in a national park not only in Costa Rica but throughout the region as well. This trail is not only unique by being universally accessible for the deaf, blind and handicapped, but is also designed and built to protect the surrounding environment. All the new bathrooms will be installed with Falcon Waterfree Urinals, the concrete paths are permeable to minimize runoff which can interfere with the ecosystem underground, all wood used is sustainably sourced and all plastic used is from recycled resources. All labor and material costs have been donated by public and private entities, truly showing how important the community views giving back and providing the 430,000 handicapped people in Costa Rica the opportunity to experience a unique National park.
The Carara National Park is located in the central pacific region, of Costa Rica, and is the beginning of the transition zone into the tropical dry forests of the northwest. This transition zone means that animals of both the tropical dry forests farther north and the tropical wet forests further south inhabit the park. Carara National Park also protects the river basin of the Rio Grande on the Pacific Coast, contains primary and secondary rainforests, lakes, rivers and waterfalls and even has pre-Columbian archaeological sites scattered throughout.
Our patent protected cartridges are cylindrical and lock into our proprietary housing unit at the bottom of each urinal. Our patented bayonet locking mechanism ensures that the system is tamper-proof and air tight. Our cartridge is the key to our unique touch free system. As the urine enters the cartridge, it comes in contact with a layer of biodegradable sealant liquid with a specific gravity less than water. The urine passes through this sealant liquid and passes through the housing tailpipe which is connected to the building’s waste system. This sealant liquid acts as an airtight barrier that isolates the urine from the restroom, providing odor free operation. In addition, uric sediment collects at the bottom of the cartridge, preventing buildup and keeping pipes cleaner than with traditional flush urinals. Read More
Falcon Waterfree urinals save 100% of the water and related sewer charges which are sure to rise in the future. Waterless urinals also eliminate energy costs associated with pumping water to and from the fixture. While ultra low flush urinals may use little water, they rely on valves that are prone to leaks, wasting tremendous amounts of water and money. Read More
"The Falcon Waterfree urinals are fantastic. I never have to worry about odor or maintenance because they just work."
"The decision to convert to waterfree urinals has not only been socially responsible, but fiscally responsible as well."
