How Do Waterless Urinals Work?

Waterless Urinals work almost the same as the urinals that work with water. The urine will travel down the bowl and through the debris catching strainer. Then the urine continues to pass through the sealing liquid, which is most often a company designed soil based fluid, or in some cases just plain old vegetable oil. This will all collect in the waste pipe. Now urine is heavier than oil which means that the urine will pass through the sealing liquid and the oil will stay floating on the top while the urine lays below.

You may wonder how the waterless urinals claim to be odor free. The technology that is used is this, any air bubbles that are formed in a low oxygen area. The odor is trapped underneath the layer of oil cannot rise to offend any restroom users. There are three liquids that are present each with its own density. The ammonia has a density of 823 kg/m3, the Oil has a density of 920 kg/m3 and the water has a density of 1021 kg/m3.

The idea is that the urine will be slowed before it gets to the oil so the flow is not disputed and the oil falls to the bottom. If this happens there is no way to trap the odor. There are 2 different styles of waterless urinals the cartridges based and non-cartridge based. Waterless urinals were first brought to the mainstream in 1992 by the Waterless Company and the very first urinal was called the Eco Trap Cartridge. As the green movement continues to push forward, we will continue to see more waterless products come out and more plumbing fixture companies will start to offer their own waterless urinals.

  2. Just curious. Do you know of the Waterless brand of waterless urinals? My husband’s work has them in their building and he has mentioned they work really well. No odor problems or troubles. I would suggest adding them to this buyer’s guide. Their website is
    Thanks. -Niki

  3. For six months now I have had the Kohler Steward Urinal in my home. I can clean it in fifteen seconds and it is odor free. There is one problem however. The strainer is mis-designed to hold a minute amount of urine. It creates a yellow crust and looks terrible Beyond that, the item is perfect in every way.

  4. I am running a research program in my school in Warsaw-Poland and chose to handle the waterless urinal section of this program. We in the team want to procure ways inwhich our school can be more efficient and cost effective too by switching to waterless urinals. The thing is for a country like Poland, the figures I find here as purchase price for your products seem to be really high.Do you have any cheaper options,please?!

    kind regards,


    P.s- can I get a reply via my email add. ASAP,please? Thanks! :))

  5. The county I work for installed Zero Flush brand waterless urinals in all our buildings. The one I work in is 4 stories and the entire building smells like urine now. A friend of mine is a paramedic for the same county and he says the station he works at now smells like urine. Not sure if the urinals need to be cleaned daily(they are currently cleaned every other day) and this is a commercial/public building. I have complained and now the building maintenance folks come by once a day and spray some blue stuff in them that last about an hour…..more like a cover sent.

    So far I’m VERY un-impressed with waterless urinals.
