Re: Urinals blocked

Removed all urinals years ago, the boys didn't know what they were [Shock.png] (mum/dad probably takes them in cubicles). also helped with covid, as both could use any of them.
My task at the moment is replacing 9 toilet seats, close fitted, so complete removal cleaned up then new anti vandal seats fitted. Not a pleasant job, but they will outlast me [Big grin.png]

Re: Urinals blocked

Similar problem. Used contractor in the end with access to very high per centage sulphuric acid. Left that in for a while, then snaked with drill wire.
Finally cleared and now pour high concentrate cleaner down urinals over a weekend every 6 months.

I remember a plumber pouring a powerful descaler down our urinals to clear a blockage, it took all the chrome off the waste strainers.
