Pee in Style and Save Water

Urinals in the home bathroom make so much sense. No more battles over the toilet seat, no more gallons of water down the pipe every time. Now urinals can be completely waterless, saving even more. Designers are streaming into the market, Clark Sorensen has an entire line of artful units like this "Jack in the Pulpit", Duravit makes a home waterless unit and we are particularly fond of the Toto Lloyd. According to the New York Times: Eric Cadora, a 42-year-old actor and consultant on green building, installed a Duravit McDry model, which uses no water to flush regularly, in the 2,800-square-foot home he shares with his wife in Malibu, Calif. He estimates the urinal will save thousands of gallons of water a year. Maintenance, he added, has been minimal; every two months, he flushes the fixture with a gallon of water and then refreshes the sealant. "It never smells," Mr. Cadora said. ::New York Times
