  • Urine for a surprise - waterless urinals smell.

    Are they doing something wrong at the Denver City and County Building?
    The men's rooms have a urine smell fom their waterless urinals.

    Thank you.
    I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified.

      There was another thread about these. City of Chicago had installed as a test basis, and had them removed recently. They are not approved in the State of Illinois.

        At first I did not get your answer!!
        Thanks.

        Do waterless urinals require a daily cleaning of some kind?

              We have a lot of them. Calsteam [owned by fergy] has one also. I have no problem with them, slight odor. Well worth the water wasted!

                amazing how we share some things in common. so you guys have these do-gooders who think they are doing the right thing for the world by saving water. Well sorry but we professionals know they are wrong. IMHO i reckon all urinals should have time flow flushes sensor activated. urinal is acid and acid needs water to dilute and neutralise. gee, common sense. So you have tree-hugging greenies over there too.

                      They're all over the place here. Yes, they do smell, and yes they are disgusting. Even an 8 ounce flush would be better than no flush at all. And to top it all off, it wouldn't surprise me if the concentrated urine started eating away at the drain piping.

                        There is nothing like the smell of urine in the morning.

                          Sounds good, more work for somebody thanks to the tree huggers.

                              Not just clogged they where eaten away. Maybe the plumber that did the job will post the photo's here.
