3 reasons to choose vacuum plumbing for your next project

A good plumbing system keeps on evolving with your building. Vacuum technology has been around for over 40 years now, empowering designers to make bolder and more cost-effective architectural design choices and also simplifying construction challenges.

Harnessing the power of vacuum technology to solve common problems concerning water usage, hygiene, and overall comfort can give your building a winning advantage. Here are our key points for future-proofed building designs by Evac, the original supplier for vacuum drainage.  


With Evac´s vacuum toilets, it is possible to gain up to 90 % savings on flushing water compared to a standard toilet. Our toilets are designed to use only 1.2 liters and our vacuum urinals only 0.6 liters per flush. In comparison, a conventional dual-flush toilet uses 3–9 liters per flush. Vacuum systems collect wastewater in a future-proof way with minimal energy and water consumption. Choosing a vacuum system can help your building achieve LEED, BREEAM, AQUA, DGNB, and other green building certifications. 


Vacuum technology allows wastewater to be transported around obstacles, overhead or horizontally without a continuous slope. This means you have a lot more plumbing design options than you would with traditional drainage systems. Vacuum drainage also makes single-fixture additions simpler and more viable, allowing for more convenient, cost-effective, and frequent remodels and expansions. Vacuum drainage systems also have a smaller pipe diameter than traditional systems, making installation simpler and more flexible. 


Evac vacuum toilets offer a more sanitary environment than traditional gravity toilets. They allow the suction of 60 liters of air during a flush, suppressing the risk of contaminated mist, odors, and bacteria. Minimal water usage also means less chance for bacteria to spread, which makes it a particularly sound choice for high-traffic buildings with public restrooms. Toilets are also available with antimicrobial material, which reduces the bacteria on the surface by up to 99,99%.

Vacuum plumbing technology is a complete plumbing system that follows more simple rules than a conventional gravity drainage system. When designing, constructing, and modernizing buildings, Evac vacuum drainage gives you the flexibility needed for cost-effective work.
