Doesn’t it smell without flushing?

No! uridan® urinals do not smell!
The centrepiece of the uridan® urinals is the patented uridan® odour trap: This odour trap works with the aid of urilock®, a special blocking fluid. It consists of plant based substances and is biodegradable. Due to the fact that it is lighter than urine, the heavier urine automatically flows directly down the drain. The lighter urilock® stays on the surface and works like a liquid lid that blocks out all drain and sewage odours.

How to clean the uridan® urinal?
The cleaning process is quit simple done in 2 steps, because of the smooth and plane surface no edges or rims where deposits could adhere. There are no visible fixing parts. For daily cleaning we highly recommend our special developed fluid uriclean®.
Isn‘t the uridan® urinal less hygienic than water flushed ones?
Exactly the opposite is fact! Urine itself is a sterile liquid in the human body. Starting to react just in contact with water where bacteria are able to grow. Several independent tests from recognized laboratories have shown that the number of bacterial contamination of water flushed urinals is tremendous against waterless urinals. Request a proof or test!
What to do if someone vomits into the urinal?
Remove the cover (using the uridan® hook) and simply rinse the residues into the sewage system. Replace the cover and add a small amount of urilock®.
How to change the blocking fluid?

Changing the blocking fluid urilock® needs 4 steps only. During this procedure you never get in contact with urine.
1. open, 2. clean, 3. refill, 4. close: pull out the cover with the uridan® hook and the underlying riser tube using long nose pliers. Now all liquids flush into the sewage system. Clean the trap inside, replace the riser tube and fill in water, close the cover – refill urilock® – finished.

How frequently the exchange of the blocking fluid urilock® have to be done?

Depending on the Type of the uridan® urinal after approx. 5.000 to 7.000 or 15.000 to 20.000 usages a change is necessary due to muddy residues on bottom of the water trap. This is visible when urine runs slower or the colored sealing liquid appears on the cover. This is the time to replace urilock®.

Never use other liquids as urilock® – only then the function is guaranteed.

What happens if water poured into the uridan® urinal? Is the blocking fluid still there?
Nothing – there are small holes at the rim of the cover just that size that nothing unexpected will happen. Water runs slowly through the blocking fluid urilock® and out into the sewage. urilock® will not flush away. That’s why trouble free functions and, a 100% odorless operation is guaranteed.
Is it difficult to replace water flushed urinals to uridan®-urinals?
No, it is very easy! The replacement work takes normally less than one hour per urinal. In case of water flushed urinals it is essential to remove urinary deposits and carbonate crusts from the drain before mounting the uridan®-urinals. Cleansing with water is not enough. After installation of uridan®-urinals urinary deposits and carbonate crusts will not occur anymore because of absence of calcareous
How about vandalism?
uridan®-urinals are fixed onto the wall with a special cross mounting system which cannot be handled from outside. That’s why vandalism is almost avoided. Beside ceramic models we are offering also glass fibre reinforced materials (GFP) which are almost unbreakable. This material impresses with long lifetime and provides high security against vandalism.
What about the economy of uridan®-urinals?

Simply by saving precious drinking water the amortisation rate (ROI) takes no longer than 12 to 24 month. Now think about usual service costs for different defects of flushing fittings, sensor defects, drain cleaning or other unexpected circumstances for water flushed urinals! The cost efficiency of uridan®-urinals starts with the simple installation. In a new development there is no longer a need for complex flushing mechanisms or electrical installations. This reduces installation, maintenance and service costs substantially.
