Try the Waterless Urinal at Lengthwise Brewing Company

On a road trip to Las Vegas, I encountered a waterless urinal in a restroom at a bus stop, in Barstow, California. I immediately thought of the water savings and conveniences this unit would offer my business. I decided to adopt the same thinking and in place of the old water-wasting urinal is now a waterless replacement. Basic math indicates this new green restroom unit will save approximately 15,000 gallons of water per year over a traditional gallon per flush unit.

We are excited about the water savings as well as the prospect of not having to use a plunger.  There is nothing worse than plunging a urinal.  I don’t know if there is a special plunger for a urinal vs. a toilet, but the standard plunger always explodes the contents of the plugged urinal all over you and the walls.  Why does anyone feel the need to flush a toothpick, gum wrapper, bumper sticker, paper towel, blister pack, sharpie cap, or business card down the urinal, anyway?  Similar to the plunger vs. urinal fiasco, the overflowing urinal on a busy Friday night will not be missed.  We had our traditional “flushing” urinal in place for 6 years and as mentioned above, it was continually a battle.

How does a waterless urinal work?  The secret, according to the manufacturer’s website: ( http://www.sloanvalve.com/182_aboutmain_ENU_HTML.htm ) is the cartridge. Sloan makes a cartridge that is good for 7,000 uses and aids in creating an odor liberated environment. There is a specific sealant that is added to the cartridge that floats above bladder recycled ale providing a barricade against the ordinary odors of a public lavatory. Urine passes around the sealant and travels down the drain.  Check out more info here: http://www.sloanvalve.com

Did I mention the $300.00 rebate for installing this unit?
