A “Waterless” Urinal Without the Odor

Sloan’s Hybrid urinal is water efficient and uses a pre-programmed, bi-weekly rinse that minimizes odor and maintenance problems.

It’s no secret that waterless urinals have a dubious reputation for causing odor and maintenance problems, but because of their significant water savings they have been installed in many green buildings—and then replaced at considerable expense in some, including the O’Hare International Airport, California’s EPA headquarters, and BuildingGreen’s own office.

The industry keeps adapting, though, and now Sloan contends that its Hybrid urinal (using technology developed by Falcon) has the advantages of a standard waterless unit with few of the drawbacks.
