Sloan Launches Flushometer Parts and Retrofit Initiatives
Sloan, the world’s leading manufacturer of commercial plumbing systems, has announced a flushometer parts and retrofit initiative, designed to educate facility managers on recommended service timetables for Sloan flushometers.
“We estimate there are approximately 25-30 million Sloan manual flushometers in the United States alone,” said Sloan product line manager Mike Gipson. “Although they last for decades, it’s important to recognize they aren’t maintenance-free. We’ve published a series of helpful resources that provide guidance on maintenance schedules, along with the appropriate replacement parts needed to extend the lifetime of flushometers. The end result is increased water savings and a reduction of both repair and replacement costs.”
With these tools—including Sloan’s new flushometer Tune Up Kits containing all the necessary parts needed for a repair—precautionary maintenance is now easier to track and schedule. Through proper installation, preventative maintenance and the use of genuine Sloan replacement parts, Sloan users and facility managers can enjoy the full capabilities of Sloan’s state-of-the-art flushometers. These guidelines are based on 110 years of manufacturing experience, providing a genuinely preventative maintenance program for Sloan customers.
“In addition to replacement parts for existing flushometers, we also offer the widest variety of easy-to install retrofit products designed to convert manual flush valves to sensor-activated flushometers,” Gipson said. “With the benefits of hands-free activation, improved hygiene and additional water savings, Sloan retrofit flushometers are available in both top- and side-mounted styles.
