Why are urinals made so weak?

Having a urinal isn’t always a luxury. Urinals are very necessary in commercial building but in residential homes their just not needed. The units alone don’t flush a ton of water and you can purchase low flushing toilets that produce the same results. Urinals tend up to clog more often then toilets cause of all the bizarre items we find in them. Today you can purchase a toilet that rarely gets clogged but costs a little more.


Commercial buildings are required to have one of two urinals in the men’s room. Though they are weak flushing and are headaches they are required.
When our company goes into residential homes to unclog or install a urinal, most the time were not sure why homeowner insist on having them. Being that our company works on urinals we know that they are extremely dirty and are not always pleasant to work on. But here at Ken’s Sewer Service we go the extra mile if we can.

The weak flushing urinal is because urine is the only substance suppose to go down the drain. Anything more will easily clog the drain inside the unit or further down the line. Working on urinals should be left to the professionals. They aren’t straight forward to when unclogging.
Ken’s Sewer Service installs and unclogs urinals weekly and is very familiar with working on them. Always hire a well trained, expierenced plumber when working on a urinal or any plumbing problem you may encounter.
