Floor urinals, are they no longer code legal?
Many years ago, back when “you could trust your car to the man who wears the star,” mens rooms in filling stations and sometimes other public buildings would have a wall urinal that was approximately 5’ tall, with the drain in the floor. Long before excessive water usage was even a thought, those things began to fade away in lieu of the wall hung model. They were extremely sturdy, and impossible to rip off the wall by vandals – the drain and lower receptacle being constructed into part of the actual tile flooring.
Since men urinating is an operation that is naturally prone to splashing and dripping, I have always wondered why those things began to be discontinued, long before saving water was an issue? It sure looked like a great idea at that time, and still does. Obviously, something about the design of the unit was faulty, else they wouldn’t have been phased out.
What was wrong with those?
