Common Issues with Urinal Systems and How Going Waterless Could HelpMaintaining urinal systems may seem like an overwhelming task at times. You aren’t a plumber, but you run a business – so what do you do when there are issues? Plumbers can be costly, depending on the size of your building, so your best bet is to do what you can to avoid problems from the get-go. One way to do this is to switch to waterless urinal systems.

Here are some common issues with traditional water-using urinals and ways that going waterless could help avoid those issues:

  • Blockages and floods: A blockage in a urinal can very quickly spiral out of control. Often times, patrons don’t recognize a stoppage and will continue to repeatedly flush, which can lead to an unpleasant mess. Waterless urinals can avoid these floods by simply not using the water that causes them. Rather than hoping the water will work as it is supposed to, waterless urinals rely on gravity to get rid of waste.
  • Flush pressure: If a urinal isn’t flushing as strongly as it is supposed to, it can cause issues with the water flow within the pipes. The same can be said if water comes out with too much pressure. Flush pressure is never an issue with waterless urinal systems, as they don’t use the traditional flusher system. Rather than fighting with those annoying flushers, rely on waterless systems to get the job done for you.
  • Water supply pipe issues: Similarly to the last point, issues with the supply in a urinal system can result in no flush or a flush that doesn’t do its job. Water supply pipes can be costly and complicated to repair, so it may be more worthwhile to avoid the supply pipes in the first place and count on waterless urinals to help maintain your restroom.
