The benefit of water free urinals is their lack of water use. Water savings based on replacing a 1.0 gallon per flush urinal with an average 37.5 flushes per day, saves 13,688 gallons per year.
Water piping is not connected to the unit, which keeps down installation and maintenance costs, as well as water and sewer bills. Because no water is required, flush controls, sensors to adjust flow, battery replacement and other maintenance, such as repairing leaks, also go away.
Because water free urinals are flushless and touchless, they tend to be more sanitary than traditional units. Germs tend to multiply in damp or wet conditions but die in dry conditions. Also, flushing turbulence created by water-using units creates an invisible mist of germs that can become airborne.
