Treating Urinal Odors and Slow Running Drains

Restroom urinal odors are a serious problem for schools, restaurants, housekeeping and maintenance managers. A urinal that smells bad can give the perception to visitors that a facility or business is dirty and uncared for, which is very bad for business. Often, urinal drains that have uric acid buildup are the source of these odors. Uric Acid buildup which can eventually slow down or block your drains. Using Crete avoids potentially costly repairs and removes the foul odors and is very easy to use. 

In schools, hotels, restaurants, theatres, factories, etc. where there is intensive usage, scale from uric acid buildup can affect drainage flow as well as be the source of strong urine odors.

Crete has been formulated for industrial and commercial applications, specifically for the treatment of urinals.  Crete treats the source of the problem and provides a solution for on-going maintenance to avoid the chance of recurring odors. With regular applications, you can avoid expensive plumbing repairs to your drains. 

Urinal Cakes or Urinal Blocks are ok to use but only mask the odor but do not solve the problem. With the correct Crete maintenance program in effect, snaking or removing a urinal from the wall should be a rare occurrence. 

How does a Urinal Descaler work? 

When bodily wastes like urine leave the body, it immediately reacts with oxygen and breaks down. Sitting urine interacts with the uric acid naturally contained in it, changing the chemical structure into ammonia. This ammonia is highly alkaline eventually forming into crystals that are hard to remove with most conventional cleaners. This scale adheres to toilet bowls and the urinal drainpipe, especially in the "p-trap".

A urinal descaler such as Crete sits in the urinal "p-trap" and slowly dissolves all forms of scale, the cause of slow running and foul-smelling urinals. This gets rid of the uric acid/salt build-up not just disguising it like many other so-called urinal cleaners. It also helps prevent future uric salt build-up. Crete even works with waterless urinals.

Alongside all the accolades that I post about my restaurant on my website, I will now include that I have the cleanest, clearest most flushable urinal in the United States. Great product! Thanx for all your help and I’ll spread the word to all my restaurant friends.

I have been using this for a while. I take care of plumbing systems in hospitals. I can tell you this makes my job a lot easier to keep things up and running. I just pour and leave it overnight after putting up a sign on the urinal. As much as I miss bringing out the snake this is much better.

Questions & Answers (6) Questions

Q: How often should this be used in a very busy Urinal in a restaurant restroom?

A: For preventative maintenance:
Minimum 1 bottle per week.

To break down bad calcium build up:
Use 1 bottle per urinal and leave in overnight. Apply once per day until urinal is running smoothly.


Q: Why do urinals get blocked?

A: One of the reasons is because of the uric acid/calcium build-up in the urinal drain pipes.

Then, the urinal gets slow draining due to the limited pipe diameters. On top of it, there will be stubborn objects stuck in the drain causing a blockage.


Q: What is Uratic salt?

A: In our business, we interchangeably say uratic salt, uric salt, uric acid scale, uric calcium, which are the build-up in urinal p-traps.

When bodily wastes like urine leave the body, it immediately reacts with oxygen and breaks down. Sitting urine interacts with the uric acid naturally contained in it, changing the chemical structure into ammonia. This ammonia is highly alkaline eventually forming into crystals that are hard to remove with most conventional cleaners.

This scale adheres to toilet bowls and the urinal drainpipe, especially in the "p-trap".


Q: How do I unclog a (slow draining) urinal without a plunger?

A: A urinal descaler such as Crete works to dissolve uric acid/calcium buildup, restoring drains to their original working diameter and eliminating the source of odors and smells.

Step 1
Pour 16 oz of Crete into the urinal. Crete will sit in the urinal “p-trap” slowly dissolving all forms of scale. Scale is the typical cause of slow running and foul-smelling urinals.

Step 2
Allow Crete to work overnight in the urinal. You may want to cover the urinal to avoid use during this time.

Step 3
When morning comes, flush the urinal a couple times. The urinal drain should now be in working order with its original diameter restored. Most, if not all, of the odor-causing scale should now be gone!

In some stubborn cases, you may need to repeat the process until the issue is resolved.


Q: How do you clear a blocked urinal?

A: First, use Broshot to liquifying everything, in case of having obstructions from organic matters like toilet paper, cigarette butts, tampons, and hair. Let it sit 10 to 15 mins at most, and wash down with sufficient water. It should clear any obstruction within that time frame.

Then, use Crete, the heavy-duty urinal descaler, to restoring the urinal drain pipe to its original working diameter by slowly dissolving all forms of uric scale.


Q: How do you keep a urinal from clogging?

A: To keep a urinal from clogging, you should eliminate the uric acid/calcium build-up in the urinal drain. With regular applications of Crete, it will keep the drains flowing properly avoiding future build-ups.
