FRANKLIN PARK, Ill. — Sloan has added a new Hybrid Retrofit Urinal to its collection of high-efficiency products that cut water use dramatically and make it easy to replace existing urinals—both traditional flushing and water-free styles.
The new model, HYB-1000-RET, offers all the features of the revolutionary Sloan Hybrid Urinal, including maximum LEED credits, minimal water and sewage costs and automatic drain rinsing. Plumbers will find the Hybrid Retrofit Urinal quick and easy to install using the existing control stop as its water source.
The Hybrid Retrofit Urinal comes with a kit consisting of only five parts that utilizes the water supply of an existing flushing urinal to feed the Jetrinse Solution Technology drain-purging feature. The innovative gooseneck tailpiece adapter seamlessly mounts to the existing control stop of a flushometer. Using their extensive experience and knowledge of flushometers, Sloan engineers created the adapter so that replacing a conventional flushing urinal is a familiar process for plumbers.
Like the original Sloan Hybrid Urinal, the Hybrid Retrofit Urinal uses Jetrinse Solution Technology, designed by Falcon Waterfree Technologies. Jetrinse uses a carefully directed water “purge” that rinses the drain line every 72 hours to prevent clogs and odor-causing buildup and minimize maintenance requirements. This feature eliminates bucket dump and bottle-brush cleaning associated with water-free and traditional urinals.
Property managers, building maintenance/plumbing directors and sustainability managers will love its high efficiency. Each Hybrid Retrofit Urinal uses only about 100 gallons of water per year, regardless of the number of users.
