 The Urinals - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Urinals were a three-piece punk rock band formed in 1978 in Los Angeles, consisting of John Talley-Jones on vocals and bass, Kevin Barrett on drums and vocals, and Kjehl Johansen on guitar and vocals.
The Urinals had a severely pared-down, frenetic sound, sometimes opting for no more than two chords in a song (for example, "Hologram" and "Ack Ack Ack Ack").
Barker left the group in 2006 and was replaced by Rob Roberge, whereupon the band changed its name again to The Chairs of Perception, a reference to The Doors of Perception, the concept that Aldous Huxley appropriated from William Blake.

They were introduced into this country from Europe in the early 30s (along with the bidet, which is still being made), and were intended as a convenience for women who did not want their delicate flesh coming into contact with yukky public toilet seats.
They came in both floor- and wall-mounted models, in the latter manifestation looking very much like men's urinals, and could be used either with stalls or lined up like their male counterparts.
Basically the urinals featured a protruding narrow bowl that the user was expected to straddle while facing the wall, having first lowered her panties and hiked up her skirt, whereupon she could do her thing.

 Hold the Water
A conventional flush urinal has a “trap” in the drain filled with a small amount of water that — as long as it does not evaporate — prevents odors and sewer gases from escaping.
The urinal's trap insert requires attention, and on some models the liquid sealant can be replenished to prolong the trap's life span and effectiveness.
For no-water urinals to be most effective, it is important to select systems that use recyclable inserts and safer, biodegradable chemicals and sealants in the trap.
