The Science Behind The Waterless Technology

How Do Waterless Urinals Work

Did you know that a standard-issued urinal uses up to 7,000 gallons of water every year? As a result of ongoing green initiatives, traditional fixtures are quickly making way for new environmentally friendly designs. Waterless urinals offer businesses and individuals alike an eco-conscious alternative that is efficient, sanitary as well as cost-effective. Read on to learn more about how waterless urinals work and whether they are the right choice for you.

How Waterless Urinals Work

With old urinals consuming as much as 30,000 gallons of water to more efficient models using 3,500 gallons - we want to change the way we construct restroom facilities. Simple yet innovative, waterless urinals were designed on the principle of gravity. Once a user has finished, gravity causes the liquid to run down out of the basin through a seal into the regular plumbing system. Made out of liquid sealant released from a disposable cartridge, the seal acts as a barrier that keeps bad odors and sewer gasses from coming back up.

Small amounts of water are needed during installation as well as for maintenance when switching the cartridge or washing the urinal’s trap. This amount usually comes to 5 to 6 gallons, a considerable difference when compared to the alternative.

Advantages of a Waterless Approach
There are multiple advantages to be gained from installing waterless urinals in high-traffic public spaces.

Higher Performance - Bathroom fixtures such as toilets and urinals are often responsible for ⅓ of a property’s water usage. Making the switch can save thousands of gallons of water as well as money on your utility bills.

Better Ventilation - The seal on waterless urinals helps keep the air clean and smelling fresh in restrooms. Without a flushing mechanism, any unpleasant odors get trapped and bacteria are prevented from settling on surfaces and entering the air we breathe.

Easy Maintenance - Without the possibility of clogs and water overflow, waterless urinals offer a simple maintenance schedule with no surprises.
