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.
