Zurn Elkay Water Solutions Launches New Zurn EZ Flush® Sensor Retrofit Kit

MILWAUKEE, Wis., May 31, 2023 -- Zurn Elkay Water Solutions recently launched the next generation of the EZ Flush® Sensor Retrofit Kit.

The EZ Flush Sensor Retrofit Kit enhances Zurn Elkay’s best-selling retrofit kit with a sleek, new look and features. The durable, chrome-plated metal finish is impact-resistant, improving the look of most flush valves while deterring vandalism. The unit is battery powered, sensor operated and features a true mechanical override button to deliver on-demand flushing.

The unit’s reliable, gear-driven operation outperforms temperamental solenoids, minimizing replacement costs. It also has a toggle feature that allows for optional 24-hour line flushing.

“Updated styling, the addition of a mechanical override button and optional 24-hour line flush feature, combined with the reliability of gear operation make it the perfect choice for your restroom upgrade,” says Bob Carter, Product Manager – Finish Plumbing for Zurn Elkay.

Zurn EZ Flush Sensor Retrofit Kits are reliable and easily installed for commercial applications where converting manual flush valves to hands-free operation is desired. The infrared sensor flush activation supports a hygienic restroom experience by eliminating touchpoints and is angled for optimum user detection. The internal sensor and motor components never encounter water, helping to ensure reliable operation for the lifetime of your commercial restroom.

According to Dan Danowski, Product Manager – Finish Plumbing at Zurn Elkay, “Zurn’s new ZERK-SM is the fastest and most economical way to upgrade your commercial flush valves to hands-free operation.”

With its side-mounted design, the new EZ Flush Sensor Retrofit Kit allows for installation on either the right or left side of the flush valve. Installation is completed by simply removing the existing handle and installing the side-mounted sensor retrofit kit. The unit’s universal retrofit accommodates conversion of most existing urinals and water closets. It is designed for quick installation, allowing for the upgrade to be complete in less than three minutes.
