Waterless Urinals


Cleanpro Waterless Urinal Servicing, When properly maintained, waterless urinals are completely odor free and absolutely hygienic.

The concept of a waterless urinal is a relatively new one. The very first versions only became available in the early ’90s, and they’re only just beginning to really gain widespread notoriety and acceptance. But in a time where water is becoming increasingly scarce – ditching the flush is an excellent way to conserve water both residentially and commercially. Also, waterless urinals aren’t some ill-advised attempts at eco-friendliness; they really do mark a significant improvement in urinal design, not just for the planet, but for the user experience.

The growing demand for ‘green’ offices and commercial buildings has led to a rapid up-take in the installations of waterless urinals.

We know the huge benefits that are gained for business and the planet through the use of waterless urinals, so we’re committed to providing this service which helps people make and keep this important change.

5 Step – A Guide to Waterless Urinals

The differences between waterless urinals and traditional ones run much deeper than simply cutting off the water supply – the same result cannot be achieved by simply not flushing an existing urinal. Traditional urinals, like toilets, use gravity-driven water to rinse out the basin and wash waste down the drain and through the pipes. But it’s actually the chemical interaction of water and urine that creates that funky pee-smell in a bathroom. Because there’s no water involved in a flush less urinal, one won’t wind up with any gross odours, and the surface of the urinal will typically stay dry (rather than perpetually moist like traditional urinals), which helps combat the growth of stinky and harmful bacteria.

Like traditional urinals, Instead of using a litre or more of water to ensure that the waste makes its way down the drain, waterless urinals employ special traps that force urine down the drain and keep sewage odours from coming up through the pipes. Most models come with replaceable cartridges that look a little like an average urinal filter once they’re installed. They’re filled with a blue liquid sealant made of a fatty alcohol that’s lighter weight than urine, so it always floats to the top, creating an odour-proof barrier.

As the urinal drains, the urine filters through the filter and then the sealant, which removes uric acid to prevent crystallisation in the plumbing, and then prevents the urine (or any air from inside the pipes) from finding their way back up the drain. As urine enters the main chamber, the sealant floats to the top, forcing the urine downward through the S-shaped interior and into the plumbing. The shape is designed not only to force urine to drain, but to prevent the sealing liquid from being disturbed, ensuring that, once drained, neither urine nor sewage odours will find their way back out. After approximately 7,000 uses (or four times a year), the liquid will begin to degrade, and the old cartridge can be easily removed, the urinal cleaned, and a new cartridge put into place.

Maintenance is really the key issue with waterless urinals because upkeep differs from those of traditional urinals. Changing the type of urinal without changing the cleaning methods can have a lot of negative ramifications, from odours to clogged drains to damage to the plumbing system as a whole. In a commercial setting, the maintenance staff should be thoroughly educated on the care and cleaning of the new urinals to prevent problems down the road. As with all urinals, waterless ones should be periodically sprayed with a mild cleaner and wiped down, especially if it is being used in a commercial setting. But more complex bi-weekly maintenance is required to keep things running smoothly and odour free.

While ostensibly waterless urinals are designed not to use any water, the rest of the plumbing probably isn’t. Because urine is mildly acidic, if it’s left undiluted in the pipes for long periods of time it can corrode all the way through certain types of plumbing. To prevent this, the system should be flushed thoroughly with hot water once every two weeks. This washes away any lingering urine or crystallized uric acid, as well as any degraded sealing liquid before it can build up or do any damage to the plumbing.

When properly maintained, waterless urinals are completely odour free and absolutely hygienic. They work equally well in commercial and domestic applications. Waterless urinals are an excellent way to cut down on water consumption, and reduce that awful bathroom smell.
