Do you like your Water Free Urinal?

Posted by Barry Greenberg on Thu, Jul 19, 2012 @ 11:07 AM

Are you happy with your choice of installing a water free (Waterless) urinal? Most engineers agree with the concept of "going green" and water savings. However, the current cartridges found in water free urinals are causing massive concerns for maintenance personnel. The drains are constantly clogging due to the super saturation of urinal salts (uratic salts) released from these cartridges. Additionally, the fluid (odor blanket) is effortlessly discarded by someone spilling soda, coffe or other liquid into the urinal. -That causes the odor problems.

Whats more- the removal of these cartridges is a disgusting, messy, smelly, chore.

  • User and servicing entity have high probability of being exposed to sewer gases, bacteria and viruses
  • High probability of "dry drain" from bacteria and water scale build up creating lumps of uric acid large enough to block the plumbing.

A major airport in Southern California has already removed their water free urinals.

Traditionally, most urinals are changed out every 2-3 months at a cost of approximately $40.00 per cartridge. That's very costly and also represents a huge impact environmentally, especially the waste created in our landfills.

There's a much more sensible and practical alternative.

The "Green Cartridge" is a patented, chemical free cartridge made of white ABS plastic and is a retrofit, made to fill ALL water free urinals. You can read more about the "Green Cartridge here".
