Conventional Urinal


Conventional urinals are those that pre-date Energy Policy Act of  1992 (EPAct 1992) and use 1.5 or more gallons of water per flush.


O+M Tips

  • Use cleaning chemicals and solutions that are Green Seal certified
  • A two-step process should generally be used if cleaning with antimicrobial products. Clean first and then apply the disinfectant. Wait the recommended time before rinsing (usually at least 10 minutes); perform other tasks while waiting for the antimicrobial to take effect. Most disinfectants are not cleaners, and are usually only effective on a clean surface.

End of Life Tips

  • If in good condition, water closets can be donated to organizations like Habitat for Humanity that will reuse them.
  • To recycle old urinals visit Earth911.com to determine the capacity of local facilities.
