The Fountains Hotel in the Cape Town CBD has recently installed waterless urinals in an effort to save water. The hotel is part of the Leisure Hotels Group which has strict green policies in all of its hotels.
Before you turn your nose up from reading about waterless urinals you may want to consider the following:
“These valves require absolutely no water and feature an airtight seal and deodorising dome to keep toilets completely odourless without wasting water.”
“The average urinal ﬂush uses around 2 ℓ of water each time it is used. Retroﬁtting existing buildings or ﬁtting new buildings with a water-free system has the potential to save South Africa billions of litres of water each year,” states Sanitree, the company responsible for this product on their website.
The urinals were installed at the Fountains Hotel last week. Their use will save up to 200 000 litres of water per urinal every year. They have the ability to save an office one million litres of water per year.
The product is also Proudly South African; designed and manufactured in Cape Town. AT a cost of only R260 per urinal, businesses and homes around Cape Town can save themselves enormous water costs, and save the earth some of its most important resource.

Having just recovered from the incredible 2010 FIFA World Cup, Cape Town is now waiting with baited breath to find out if the go ahead will be given for Cape Town to start hosting a Grand Prix race in future Formula 1 Grand Prix seasons. With the cancellation of the Bahrain Grand Prix at the start of this year’s season, organisers were left with no choice but to look for alternative locations. A Grand Prix generates a wealth of income for all parties involved and if political problems persist in Bahrain, the race will be permanently moved. And Cape Town is the firm favourite for the post!
Bernie Ecclestone, the “Godfather of Formula 1″ has stated that Cape Town could expect a Grand Prix “within two years” and that they are “weeks away from signing” the contract that will secure a race in Cape Town.
There are three plans in the mix in terms of potential circuits. The first, and most popular is the Green Point idea: a Monaco style race which will run through the streets of the suburb and through Cape Town stadium with a similarly difficult chicane in the centre of the stadium.
There is also an idea to create an entitely new track near the airport, and the third is to create a new track on the West Coast.
Whichever they choose, we’ll certainly be there!
