The current method of using water aspirators to provide low vacuum in university laboratories is wasteful and inefficient. The project substituted stand-alone diaphragm pumps in three laboratories to gauge their utility as a water-saving alternative, and assessed possibilities for institutionalization across other facilities.

The pumps were installed in three separate research labs in order to replace existing equipment that uses water aspirators. A log was set up at each location in order to track usage of the pumps. There was a wide variation of usage; ranging from 3-9 hours/day which corresponds to a water savings of roughly 540 gal/day to 1,620 gal/day for a monthly savings averaging approximately 32,400 gal.

Future plans include installation of diaphragm pumps in all other laboratories.
