Urinals are usually fitted in commercial premises. At Always Plumbing based in St Albans, Hertfordshire we have the experience to plan, install and supply you with the right solution. Below are the regulations for installing a urinal.
- Urinals must be fitted with a control device to ensure flushing only occurs during periods of use. There are various methods including passive infrared sensors, water usage detectors or time controls. Manually operated pressure flushing valves are now also available.
- If you have automatic flushing urinals make sure that the control mechanism is working correctly. Cisterns should not fill with more than 7.5 litres per urinal per hour. Do not just assume that the mechanism is working correctly, arrange for a plumber or competent employee to check and adjust if necessary.
- Urinals can use considerably less water than flushing WC’s, so install adequate numbers in all male toilet areas.
- Waterless urinals use a chemical barrier fluid or cartridge to prevent odours without the need to flush with water.
