About Us

I have been a plumber most of my life; I started right after I got out of the service in 1965. My father-in-law Ernie Farthing taught me the trade. I have carried a journyman license in Florida and Wisconsin and still carry a master license in New Hampshire. 

The name of my patent is in honor of my father-in-law who not only taught me, but several family members including our oldest son David.

Ernie was like a second father to me, so I found it only fitting to name this product after him. 

Ernie’s water saving urinal pad is the answer to saving water. I have researched and tested it for the past eleven years and it REALLY WORKS! Try it and you will save water and money. This will save the cost of a waterless urinal installation. 



I have been working on this waterless urinal pad since 1998. I really got serious about this invention in the year 2000, after I went to the Boston Trade show and saw the waterless urinals. I have been a plumber for 45 years and I just could not see how the principal of a grease trap would work on the waterless urinal. I have never seen a grease trap that was not greasy or smelly.
