Garage Relief System

Ok...this is something we all deal with. I've got a shop set up in my barn and it has a beer fridge that sees a lot of use. It is unheated and has no water line in it. I want to put a pisser in with a line thru the wall to a stone pit outside. My neighbor has a porcelain urinal on the wall of his but it stinks like hell. I was thinking of a large funnel with a hinged lid like the ones used to pour oils and chemicals with. Can't seem to find one at a reasonable price.

Any suggestions out there on a system to use??

I use a self-contained marine/RV porta potty. No odor, easy clean-up, and inexpensive. The same toilet also goes in my cargo trailer for camping at races and/or dualsport rides.

That RV unit is a great idea!

On the cheap? I had a rich friend who had a sweet detached garage with no water/heat. He put a funnel (6" top) in the corner (by the welding shields) with a tube going outside.

If you don't piss on the floor it shouldn't really stink!

I've been to a few gritty steel mills where the urinal of choice was an old 5 gallon sparkletts water bottle with the bottom cut out. Turn it upside down, hook up a large hose vented to outside and piss away!

Did he use a waterless urinal or did he just mount a standard one on the wall with no plumbing? If it's just a standard one, I'm guessing there's a trap in there filled with stale piss...

Edit - God, it's a slow day at the office that I'm replying to threads like this....

For a waterless urinal get some of those hockey puck deodorizers.

I once did an engine/transmission change by myself in a parking lot. It was only after I'd finished that I realized that I'd been at it for 18 hours without a break and REALLY needed to pee. Do you know how hard it is to wash grease off of your hands when you have gone without peeing that long? And I couldn't just let fly in the middle of the parking lot with apartments all around, so I had to get back to my apartment first.

As for how to handle such things in a garage, maybe set up a bucket with kitty litter in it. Just make sure you line the bucket with a trash liner, so you don't have the smell permeate the plastic.

This has the advantage of not requiring you to stop what you are doing.



There's no smell either.

I think it has the distinct disadvantage of either requiring you to insert a tube into yourself or wear a condom all day. Pass.

I'm a man, the world is my urinal.

I could use something like that on the bike, especially if I ever get around to adding a 4gal Sampson tank. That would give me more than 400 miles of range, and on the bike I usually need to pee before then.

Yeah, you got it right. Just a standard one with no water flush. Even the flies won't go near it in the summer! That's why I was thinking of something with a lid. But being retired and drinking beer there is still better than being at the office
