Houston, Texas (PRWEB) June 21, 2012
One Stop Green now carries and installs waterless urinals that are perfect for businesses, governmental entities, and other commercial properties. A Waterless urinal saves on average a whopping 20,000 to 45,000 gallons of water a year and also offers many other significant green advantages, including biodegradable traps.
The conservation of water has become a requirement for many facilities, cities, states and the federal government. This need is driven by the availability of water or lack thereof, current sewer capacities and rising costs or budget cuts. Today, toilets and urinals are still flushed with potable water and it is estimated that up to 20% of the available drinking water in the world is wastefully flushed down the drain.
Waterless urinals achieve zero water consumption and are a simple way to see quick results and savings. From the start, they reduce the water consumption of a building where there are urinals present and are also relatively maintenance free. These patented Waterless No-Flush™ urinals also eliminate and/or minimize common problems such as urinal odor, leaking flush valves, leakage and over flow, and even defend against rising water prices. In addition to this, Waterless Urinals significantly improve Indoor Air Quality and eliminate winterization costs.
It can be estimated that there are approximately 8 million urinals installed in the US alone with approximately 100 million people using these fixtures. Assuming an average 2-gallon flush, the potable water use of urinals alone, in the US per year, is approximately 160 billion gallons! 160 billion gallons of water is equivalent to the water usage of 490,000 homes or 1.9 million people per year. This vast amount of outflow to the sewer and septic systems can be eliminated and will not run into our natural waterways and oceans. On the local level, a typical office building rest room with three urinals and 120 men equals a yearly water use of 237,600 gallons of potable water flushed down the drain. This assumes three uses per person per day and only 220 working days.
“We feel these waterless urinals fit perfectly within One Stop Green’s already diverse line of water efficiency products,” says Greg Boyce, COO of One Stop Green, “and the amount of water and money our customers will save makes this a must for any new construction.”
