Why Choose Waterless Urinals?
Lower Water Usage
Waterless urinals are revolutionizing the plumbing industry by offering maintenance, operation and cleaning staff a viable alternative to manual and electronic urinals. With no more flushing, waterless urinals can save you up to 100,000 liters of water or more per year per fixture. This represents a massive saving of an increasingly scarce and expensive resource.
Easy Installation and Lower Maintenance
Waterless urinals are easier to install in both new construction and retrofit applications and maintenance is virtually eliminated. Our unit is quicker, easier and cheaper to install than conventional urinals, needing no cistern, flush pipes or bottle trap. And since there are no moving parts, you will no longer have to repair flush valves, or deal with encrustations, plugged drains, overflows or vandalism. Waterless systems also avoid the need for frost and vandal prone plumbing accessories and avoid flooding when bowls block due to scale or sabotage. Washrooms will no longer need to be shut down to remove salt build up in the piping and there will be no risk of flooding or water pressure drop during high peak periods.
Regardless of what type of urinals or flushing system you currently have, waterless urinals will make your washroom or restroom a healthier place to be. As well as offering significant water savings, waterless urinals eliminate many of the problems associated with flushing urinals, namely scale, odour, blockage, and subsequent flooding. The waterless urinal is healthier and more hygienic than other alternatives because it is both dry and flushless. With Waterless urinals, bacteria doesn’t have the moisture they need to thrive. The dry urinal surface of the waterless urinal is liquid repellent and hostile to bacteria. Urinals that are flushed are known to spread bacterial aerosols, which then seed nearby wet and damp spots to form new growths. All of this is eliminated with waterless urinals. They eliminate offensive urinal odors by isolating urine from the restroom atmosphere. The EcoTrap®, a special drain insert, contains a layer of BlueSeal® liquid that floats on top of the urine in the trap and forms a barrier against sewer vapor escape. This EcoTrap® barrier is more sanitary than the pool of diluted urine that seals the conventional urinal drain.
How It Works
The Waterless No Flush™ Urinal by Water Matrix looks just like a conventional urinal. It is available in vitreous china, or fiberglass, and installs to a regular 2″ waste-line in new construction, renovations, or retrofit applications. The key to the success of the product is the unique EcoTrap system. A small amount (3 oz.) of an immiscible liquid called BlueSeal floats inside the removable trap. When the urinal is used, the urine passes through this “lighter than water” liquid and down the drain line just as it does in a conventional urinal. The BlueSeal liquid effectively forms a barrier between the drain and the washroom environment, sealing out the urine odor. The dry urinal surface creates a hostile environment for bacteria resulting in an even more sanitary and odor-free fixture. The 3 oz. of BlueSeal liquid will last for about 2000 urinal uses or more before requiring replenishment, making it much more economical than the ever increasing cost of water. By eliminating the flush valve; repairs and maintenance are also eliminated providing even greater savings.
