Making a difference through our products,
and how we operate
Our Product Story
Americans flush an estimated 5.7 billion gallons (21.58 billion liters) of clean drinking water down the drain every day while countries all over the world face terrible water shortages. Issues like this drive Falcon Waterfree to commit to sustainability in our products and practices in an attempt to reduce our carbon footprint and conserve the planet’s water.
Since we started 15 years ago, we have put hundreds of thousands of urinals in operation and led the way for restroom sustainability. Along the way our products have saved an estimated 20 billion gallons or more of water, with each additional installed Falcon Waterfree urinal saving up to another 40,000 gallons of water or more every year. Our users also save daily operational energy while cutting harmful greenhouse gas emissions associated with water transport and waste treatment.
We continue to work tirelessly to develop new technologies that reduces our footprint and save water. By supporting these products you are also supporting an innovative future and a better tomorrow. We invite you to join our fight.

We Want To Help You Become LEED Certified
By converting your facility to Falcon Waterfree urinals, you earn valuable points towards becoming LEED certified. Waterless urinals can help you earn up to 13% of the points required for basic LEED – Existing Building Operation and Management Certification under 2009 LEED certification standards.
LEED-certified buildings retain higher property value, may cost less to operate, and may qualify for a host of incentives like tax rebates and zoning allowances.
As the world becomes more aware of its carbon footprint, companies who build “green” will be valued as industry leaders who redefine success in business.

Local Rebate Programs
To help you save money, we have partnered with local water agencies to get your urinal installation paid for through rebate programs. Our current partnerships with the Metropolitan Water District (MWD) and Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) provide $500 water rebates to almost all of Southern California. These rebates often enable commercial property owners to retrofit their restrooms for free. Contact us to learn more about rebates available in your region.
