Waterless Urinals Require Custodial and Maintenance Training





Another consideration when installing waterless urinals is properly training custodial and maintenance personnel. Training primarily will affect the custodial staff because proper cleaning is the key to waterless urinal maintenance.

Staff training should occur before and after installation to alert workers to changes in cleaning and maintenance procedures, including replacing or cleaning cartridges.

Managers will have to determine if waterless urinals are right for their buildings. When considering installation of these urinals, it is important to identify the location of the products, as well as whether installation truly will be cost-effective and environmentally beneficial.

Finally, research has shown waterless urinals are just one way to become more environmentally responsible. If a facility manager is seriously considering taking positive steps toward creating a water-efficient building, engaging a qualified consulting-engineering service can help in the evaluation, design, and implementation of potential water-efficient technologies and strategies.
