About The Urinal Shop Team
Our Team Knows Urinals
The Urinal Shop website was launched by a team of plumbers and urinal cleaners who have developed an excellent understanding of what does and doesn’t work in the world of urinals.
After many years of fixing problem urinals (mostly installed after poor decisions were made during construction and compounded through average preventative maintenance programs), it was decided to put together The Urinal Shop to help buyers make better choices when purchasing urinals.
In many cases Architects specified a certain type of urinal based purely on aesthetics, only to discover after a year of use they had numerous problems with smells, water wastage or drain pipe damage. All of these problems could have been avoided with the correct information and expert advice.
Our team of plumbers and service technicians have worked with almost every urinal available. We draw on their feedback and recommendations to supply you with what we consider to be the best urinal products currently on the market.
Since budget is a major consideration for most companies we have gone to great lengths to provide a full range of urinal products and options to facilitate everybody’s needs. From $50 retrofits of existing urinals to $3,500 latest technology waterless troughs, we have your needs (and urinal budget) covered.
Ongoing Cost Considerations
When purchasing a new urinal it’s important that ongoing costs are considered. Many people have been caught out buying a top-of-the-range waterless urinal (to save them 120,000 litres of water a year) only to find they end up paying 4x the water costs in consumables required to run the urinal. Of course, for some customers, water savings are their paramount goal, but it is something to consider.
If you require any information or would like one of our staff to visit your site for a free inspection please contact us any time.
