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, that 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.
The cleaning process is quite simple and 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®. Spray uriCLEAN® on the inner and outer surface of the urinal and polish it with the uriCLOTH® micro fibre cloth.
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.
First remove the remains from the vomit on the surface. Remove the cover of the urinal using the uridan® suction device and rinse the vomit with plenty of water into the sewer. In case of heavy soiling, we recommend using our specially developed uriSTRONG® deep cleaner (Please read the cleaning instructions for details). Fill the waste trap with plenty of water and insert the cover. Now pour 0,3 l uriLOCK® over the cover and your urinal is ready for use again.
Refilling the blocking fluid uriLOCK® is very easy. Simply pour one bottle 0,3 L uriLOCK® over the cover and the urinal is again ready for use. The refilling is fast, odorless and contact-free.
The refilling of the uriLOCK® blocking fluid should be made after 3 months or approx. 15.000 usages. A change is necessary due to muddy residues on bottom of the water trap. This is visible when urine runs slower. Open the cover and see if there is still enough uriLOCK® in the urinal. If there is not enough blocking fluid, pour 0,3 l uriLOCK® over the cover.
When using a urinal with a HighTech cover. The refilling of the blocking fluid uriLOCK is being indicated with the integrated LED-light. To monitor the fluid level, simply swipe the cover with a magnetic pen and the LED-light will indicate if there is enough uriLOCK in the urinal. Green indicated that the uriLOCK level is fine. Red indicates that a uriLOCK refill is required.
Never use other liquids as uriLOCK – only then the function is guaranteed.
