Urinals for the home.

Would you ever consider installing a urinal in your home?

Male Urinals

Urinals seems sensible when you’re in a public loo so why haven’t they been welcome in your home bathrooms? They don’t take up much space or plumbing and don’t always require water.

The typical toilet consumes 9 litres of clean drinking water per flush. As more and more people are looking into reducing their water footprint by installing water hippos or bricks into their cisterns or even bending down the ball valve lever, no one I know has seriously considering installing a urinal into their home bathroom, let along a waterless one.

The male urinal sure does pass the test for practical design. However due to a my gender predisposition and my lack of experience with the female porcelain equivalent, it is my understanding that the design needs some further thought before it will gain popularity.

For those interested in keeping their fresh water use down to a minimal after taking care of other business, there is always the option of grey water sanitation that makes use of wash water (grey water) to clear the porcelain bowl.
