Waterless Urinal

During a recent trip to the mall, I needed to make a stop at the men's room.

I stepped up to the urinal ... and saw a sign that caught my attention.

It said that it was a waterless urinal.

Apparently that's the latest thing. It seems that Al Gore and Co. are interested in how I pee.

Anyway, it seems that there's now a market for waterless urinals. Folks are spending lots of bucks to install these things, I suppose.


You know, I had never used a waterless urinal before.

Unless you count the last time I walked into a porta-potty at the fair. Or at a construction site.

Of course, the first time I used a waterless toilet was a while back. It was the outhouse at my great-grandparents' place in Gum Branch, GA.

Wow. My great-grandparents were a hundred years ahead of their time.


  1. LOL

    Well, when I get there after 3 cups of coffee, it won't stay waterless for long

    (Rick Lee the blogging photographer said he keeps reminding himself he's only one generation removed from the outhouse>)

  2. These urinals are all the rage at Auburn and have been installed in all of the newer buildings... The funny thing is, when they gave us a tour and included that information, they made a big deal about how the cleaning supplies for them are incredibly expensive and because of this, the negatives outnumber the positives.

  3. I haven't experienced any of the waterless ones in Texas yet. However, most of the urinals here do have a sign above them that says: "PLEASE DON'T EAT THE BIG MINT!"

    And a Happy Sunday to all! This one is for Father’s Day, for all those dads (like mine) who picture themselves as race car drivers. Little tamer then normal, but that’s OK, so is dad . Original artist is Bill Medcalf, with a bit of an addi...
