- The Hippo the Water Saver is the simple, proven and low cost water saving device to help conserve water in toilet cisterns.A Hippo is simply a Polyethylene unit that opens to look like a box, which sits neatly in the cistern of your toilet and saves you water and money every time you flush the toilet. It will also help to reduce your carbon footprint. It happily sits in the water underneath the large cistern float. When the toilet is flushed, the water confined within the Hippo is the volume saved. It also has a small hole which acts as a relief valve allowing slow circulation of water to prevent stagnation and evaporation.
Suitable for home & office use.
The Hippo is available in two sizes:
Which Hippo is best for you?
Hippo 7 - If you have slim-line 9 litre and smaller cisterns to 6 litres
Hippo 9 - If you have a 13 or standard 9 litre cistern
Comes with full instructions on reverse of the bag
Please note the Hippo is NOT suitable for modern continental style dual flush (post 2001)
