How to use:
To use this water-conserving urinal block and holder, the urinal is cleaned, a urinal block and holder is placed within the bottom of the urinal, and water is shut off. Part of the formulation is a blended mixture of a non-paradichlorobenzene block. The urinal should be cleaned once a day. Each urinal block and holder will last up to about one month before needing replacement.
A major advantage of this urinal pad is the savings in water that can be achieved without having to replace the current water-based urinal with a water-less urinal. The formulation of the urinal block assembly is completely water soluble and will not clog drains. The formulation lasts up to thirty days with no water supply. Most urinals flush 1.5 to 1.6 gallons per flush. Based on an average urinal usage per day of 25 flushes, approximately 37.5-40 gallons of water per urinal per day are used. For an average 30-day month that amounts to 1,125 - 1,200 gallons of water used by one conventional urinal. Using Ernie’s Water Saving Urinal Pad, and turning off the water, which effectively converts the conventional urinal into “water-less” or at least a water-conserving urinal, can mean an annual savings of 13,500 to 14,400 gallons of water per year per urinal. In addition to the savings in water usage, additional savings are obtained by the reduced fees charged by the local water treatment plant as sewage fees, which are typically based on water usage. Since for each urinal using the apparatus the method of this urinal pad will reduce the amount of water used for the urinals, the lower the charge for sewage fees.
Water provides a breeding ground for bacteria: water free urinals actually prevent the harboring and growth of bacteria. No water means no bacteria and, therefore, a more hygienic operation.
