Default Waterless Urinals

Anyone seeing water-less urinals in their area? Up until the newest Illinois plumbing code was adopted they were not approved in our State. As long as they comply with >>> Vitreous China, ASME A112.19.19-2006 (R2011) they are approved.





Can see the uses in parks at least, from there I guess they are OK as long as they are maintained.

I've seen a few, but new water guidelines here they might as well be waterless.http://www.energy.ca.gov/2015publica...CMF-marked.pdf

Plenty of them in Atlanta. Bars, restaurants, car dealerships, etc. Stupid idea. But we charge a premium to clear the drains.

they suck, the technology isnt there to stop the smell, as most guys piss all over the back of the urinal and with no water to wash away the piss, it just dries and builds up to stink big time...and better not use copper to pipe in the drains, the raw piss will make short life of that pipe without any water to flush the corrosive salts away...thats gota suck big time to have to do any kind of drain cleaning on them...

Yep, Illinois just passed them in 2014. Surprised they did. I could see make a public parks, but for any other applications its a mess.

No one around here would even think of a copper drain, possibly cast but usually PVC.

Indiana has had them for awhile. Saw them about ten years ago at Holiday World. I can't believe Illinois allowed them.

They have to be maintained daily. In Virginia, someone thought that it would be a good idea one time to put them in the pickle parks (rest stations) in the Northern Va area at one time. They spent a boat load of money on them. Only to realize what a mistake they made because they had to be filled with the blue juice so often. So again, rip out re-do.
