DVS - No-Touch WC Flushvalve - Battery Power
The DVS No-Touch Battery powered WC Flushing System is an electronically operated drop valve which delivers a measured volume of water from the cistern to the WC bowl. The Flushvalve is activated when the user’s hand comes within 50mm of the sensor and a 35 second delay mechanism prevents abuse between flushes by the user. An electromagnetic solenoid coil is central to the operation of the Flushvalve.
The timer can be adjusted to between 1 and 6 seconds (1 second = 1 litre water approx.) Typical battery life allowing up to 10,000 WC flush operations. Most WC cisterns will require the standard 1.5" base but newer water saving 'ECO' cisterns (providing 4L and 2.5L flushes) and some very old cisterns may require the 2" base. Please check before ordering. The 2" base option can be selected from the option lists below. Not suitable for use in close- coupled or low level exposed toilet cisterns.
- control box battery powered - includes 6 x C battery cells
- wave-on sensor with 38mm bezel

Why councils are fitting DVS Flushvalves
WC Flushvalves are being extensively fitted in public toilets to save water and reduce vandal problems. Broken handles are a major headache in public toilets and the WC Flushvalve eliminates this problem.
Wiltshire County Council conducted extensive tests and justifies the fitting of WC Flushvalves on water savings.
West Devon District Council were having major problems in public toilets with broken handles. These problems have been totally eliminated since fitting the WC Flushvalves.
Hunstanton District Council put a trial of 6 valves in a toilet block with 18 WC's. The toilet block was opposite the fair ground and considered to be the most problematic of their public toilets. The 6 units where the Flushvalves have been fitted have been free of blockages and in full working order. The toilets where the Flushvalves have been fitted are also noticeably tidier and more popular. The council are now going to fit the WC Flushvalves in all their public toilets.
The hygienic aspects of the no-touch WC flushing system should be an important consideration for all industries, including food factories, hospitals and anywhere where cross contamination should be avoided.
Charges for water are generally based on the water plus sewage charges, which vary in the UK between approximately £1.20 and £3.50 combined rate. The shortest payback periods are therefore in busy toilets with large cisterns and areas with high water charges.
One major airport estimated saving 200,000 M3 per annum after fitting DVS WC Flushvalves. They also significantly reduced maintenance and blockages, as well as upgrading the facilities.
A council estimated payback on water savings would be around 12 months, but then found savings on maintenance were equally significant and achieved 6 months payback.
Approximately 25% of water use in most buildings is WC flushing and therefore efficient flushing often offers the second most cost effective method to save water after urinal controls.
