Waterless Urinals

Many office buildings are looking to save energy and water ... one easy way to do this is with waterless urinals.  In addition to saving the cost of the additional plumbing (no water line needed - sewer line is needed) there is the recurring water savings.

" ... Waterless Co. ... the most simple and most cost effective system on the world market. ... No-Flush™ urinals work completely without water or flush valves. .... easy to install, improves restroom sanitation and eliminates odors."

" ... estimated that up to 20% of the available drinking water in the world is flushed down the drain, wastefully. ... leakage of water delivery lines may add an additional 8% ... "

" ... Waterless urinal saves on average 20,000 to 45,000 gallons of water a year. ... estimated that there are approximately 8 million urinals installed in the US alone with approximately 100 million people using these fixtures. Assuming an average 2 gallon flush, the potable water use of urinals alone, in this country per year, is approximately 160 billion gallons!..."

On your local level this could mean: A typical office building rest room with three urinals and 120 men equals a yearly water use of 237,600 gallons of potable water flushed down the drain. This assumes three uses per person per day and only 220 working days.
