Conventional Suction Systems
Dental vacuum systems can use as much as 360 gallons of water per day.
Suction systems, also known as dental vacuum systems, are a critical piece of machinery for any dental office.
Unfortunately, they use a tremendous amount of water. It’s estimated that a typical dental office uses as much as 57,000 gallons of water per year, with the average vacuum system using 360 gallons of water a day.
That amounts to 9 billion gallons of water a year
from US dental practices alone.
With the world facing a serious water crisis, we shouldn't be pouring this precious resource down the drain.
High-tech, dry vacuum systems accomplish the same results yet use no water at all.
