Sealant-LiquidThe installation of waterless urinals in your public restroom facilities is a great plan for saving one of the world’s most precious natural resources: water. However, by having waterless urinals installed, your company also stands to gain by drastically decreasing the amount of water used, thereby lowering the water bill. Waterless urinals also require very little maintenance, as the system is actually much simpler than a traditional urinal’s system. So how do waterless urinals work?

Waterless urinals are installed in a restroom facility much like any other type of urinal, except they do not require a water hook-up. They simply need to be mounted and attached to a drainage line to allow an exit flow.

The chief development of the waterless urinal is the cartridge that is inserted into the drain of the urinal. Though the specifics of the design will vary depending on which company supplies the urinal, all cartridges encompass a filtering technology that allows fluid to pass through and into the drain.

The cartridge needs to be changed very rarely, and changing that cartridge and regular, simple cleaning are the only maintenance tasks that your waterless urinal system will ever need. This means that the system will save money by eliminating the need for replacing broken flow valves and flush handles, as well as the need for a water supply. The absence of water also helps to control any odors caused by the splashing of urine into water and vise-versa. Waterless urinals also have no need to be flushed, a huge plus for those using the restroom who want to touch as little as possible.

Waterless urinal systems are quickly becoming the norm in modern restroom facilities across the world, as they conserve in every way. Begin saving money and water today by having your facilities fitted with waterless urinals!
