Waterless Urinal Approved In L.A.
The City of Los Angeles has approved the H2Zero™ waterless urinal by Caroma for use in all buildings. H2Zero uses cartridge technology and zero water for optimum performance and water conservation.
The vitreous china urinal’s cartridge contains a Bio Fresh deodorizing block that is activated during use. The Bio Seal™ allows urine to pass through the seal freely, eliminating unnecessary waste build-up within the cartridge. It lasts up to 10,000 uses, and also acts as a one-way airtight valve to seal the cartridge from the drainage system.
To service the urinal, the H2Zero’s cartridge tool is used to remove the grate and access the internal components. The Bio Fresh deodorizer and Bio Seal can then be removed and replaced as required. This touch-free tool ensures no direct contact with the replacement components, and no special disposal method is required.
“The H2Zero can save the City of Los Angeles millions of gallons of water per year through replacing older, water-consuming 1-gallon urinals,” states John Karas, Caroma’s North America product manager. “In addition, the unique technology in the H2Zero minimizes service required and manages odors and waste build-up, unlike other waterless urinals currently on the market.”
