How to Do Waterless Urinals Work?

To many consumers, waterless urinals don't make sense. How can a waterless urinal be sanitary or odorless? Despite the many benefits of waterless urinals, people still do not understand how they work or are hesitant to try them out. However, understanding how a waterless urinal works can help to dispel some of the confusion and make people more willing to incorporate them into their businesses. Toilet Installation in Youngstown

How do they Work?

So, how do they work? Simply put, they curtail the path of urine and instead, through a one-way valve, lead it to a trap. This trap employs density and uses a chemical that is less dense than urine to displace it. The chemical floats to the top while also pushing the urine down. This chemical helps seals odor, and through density, keeps urine from flowing back into the urinal.


As with any appliance, waterless urinals must be maintained. As you might expect, the chemical or liquid eventually must be replaced. If not, the overall functionality of the chemical in preventing urine from seeping back into the urinal and preventing odor will dissipate. It is important to keep regular maintenance for the waterless urinal, something that Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Youngstown can easily help with.

Benefits of a Waterless Urinal

Still, you might be asking yourself: why get a waterless urinal? There are numerous benefits to having a waterless urinal. Water, often an agent of bacteria, disappears meaning that there is overall less bacteria present within the urinal. Since waterless urinals are more simple and do not require different cisterns, flushing mechanisms, or supply pipes, they require less maintenance. This saves money farther down the line and also proves to be much less of a hassle than normal urinals. On top of all this, there is virtually no chance of flooding or pipe blockage. Business owners can reap the many benefits of having a waterless urinal. Overall, they lead to lower maintenance costs, they are extremely sanitary, they are much easier to install, and most importantly they help conserve water and are an eco-friendly alternative to normal urinals.
