HUD TEST VERIFIED VALUE OF WATER-CONSERVATION DEVICE
HUD TEST VERIFIED VALUE OF WATER-CONSERVATION DEVICE CARLSBAD, Calif., Nov. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Con-Tech Systems Inc.
(NASDAQ: 3CTKS) manufacturers of Future Flush (R), a unique water- conservation device for toilet systems, recently scored impressive results in Department of Housing and Urban Development test on low- income properties.
Seven "Section 8" housing developments were retrofitted with Future Flush (R) in late June and at the end of the third quarter the properties had used, on average, 21 percent less water than they had been using prior to the three-month test. "At an average of 21 percent savings, the Future Flush (R) retrofit kits will pay for themselves within 15 months and then begin accruing savings directly to taxpayers," said Brian Brittsan, executive vice president of Con-Tech. "Multiply that by the number of HUD low-income housing properties nationwide and you have the potential for conserving a lot of water as well as taxpayers dollars." Future Flush (R) saves water by separating the functions of removing liquid wastes and paper from the removal of solid waste. This is accomplished by a dual-handle flush for liquids and paper, while the longer handle initiates a full flush for solids. Earlier this year, the State of Colorado selected Future Flush (R) for use in federally-sponsored housing projects nationwide. HUD plans to use such devices as part of its water-conservation strategy. HUD also is testing low-flush devices in manufactured houses. The State of Delaware recently mandated that all newly constructed houses must be equipped with water-conserving toilets. The Manufactured Housing Institute has appealed to HUD to preempt the Delaware law until HUD completes its testing program at the end of 1991. The Future Flush (R) device for toilets available from Con- Tech Systems Inc. provides a much more cost effective solution to the toilets wasteful nature than the new ultra low volume toilets that are now available. -0- 11/21/91 /CONTACT: Jay Martin or Brian Brittsan, executive VP of Con-Tech Industries, 800-446-5765/ (3CTKS) CO: Con-Tech Industries ST: California IN: SU: PDT AL -- SD001 -- 5750 11/21/91 09:30 EST
