Waterless Urinal


Waterless urinals are touch-free fixtures that are designed to be entirely water-free. Instead of using water to clean the bowl, urine travels down specially-coated bowls and through specially-designed cartridges that ensure the fixture remains odor-free. Locate the waterless urinal down-drain from a water-using fixture.


O+M Tips

  • Replace cartridges according to manufacturer's recommendations.
  • Anti-splash urinal screens or guards are available for waterless urinals

End of Life Tips

  • If in good condition, urinals 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.

For alignment with LEED Standards

  • Water Use Reduction: Employ strategies that in aggregate use at least 20% less water than the water use baseline. Water saving urinals with a flush rate of less than 1.0 gpf can contribute to the water use reduction.
