Making flushing easier? This is really a problem for some people?

Low water pressure or something? Crappy toilet? Maybe basement toilets where your drain line doesn't just drop down?

Only those with "green" low-flow toilets.

We have a basement toilet at my office that has trouble with flushing liquids.

The first green toilet I saw was twenty years or so ago in Denmark.

I do my business, turn to flush and see two buttons on top. One was grey, the other half grey, half white.

I knew for sure one of them was "flush", but wasn't too sure which, and what the other one did exactly. I picked the fully grey button and stuck with it the whole vacation.

I like being green and all, but I HATE these low-flush toilets. If I could, I'd use an environment-ravaging turbo flushing machine if I could guarantee success on first flush.

/but yeah, we sound fat

At a job I used to work at they have low flush toilets and it required about 6 flushes to get everything to actually flush.. Your shiat and TP would spin and ball up with the water hitting it and never go down because there was never good suction created to get it all down with one flush.

Our office tried the low flushers, didn't work. We now have the "holy shait I think a bowling ball would go down that."

My dad still has one of the old-style toilets in his basement. If I ever own a house, I'm stealing it from him. That thing is worth its weight in porcelain.

Au Contraire, mon frere!

Observez-vous:

Caroma low flow flushes a 4'' russet potato using only .8 gallons of water

And why I am speaking French while talking about an Australian product I have no idea.

Seriously, I have two Caroma Caravelles. Been in use for eight years. Not one single clog, ever. I've multi-flushed maybe ten times in all those years.

You need new toilets, my man.

Wait till you see the new "green" vehicles that don't even use electricity, just a tank of compressed air pressurized to 30 MPa or more.

Failure mode of gas-powered car: fuel tank ruptures in crash, gas catches fire, occupants of vehicle DIAF.

Failure mode of compressed air car: fuel tank ruptures in crash, explosion kills everyone in a 50m radius, as well as leaving a 5m crater in the road.

You know now, right? Were you too embarrassed to ask someone how to use such a vital piece of equipment?

Full circle = Full flush (for solids), half circle = half flush (for liquids).

Seriously, in this day and age, how can anyone not know this?

I loved the way the potatoes just plopped down below. It really evoked the look of a high-protein diet.

This would make a good episode for CSI or one of the other overly-abundant forensic shows.

"The dispersal pattern of the fecal material indicates it was free-flowing and not diluted by the water present.
Next time, stick to the cinnamon twists."

When I was in high school, i did a report about an ad I read for a toilet that had it's beta testers able to flush 49 golf balls in one flush. Right about the time my parents had low-flow toilets installed and had to buy a plunger for the first time.

//yes, the ad mentioned toilet beta testers. no, I don't know how such a job came into existence, nor the job creator's fark handle.

I'd like to see the compressor that's pushing 300 bar. I work on Gardner-Denvers capable of 45-50 bar and they're huge. I know there's compressors capable of it but you're not going to squeeze one in your garage to power up your car.

I had two of these things in my house, both of them cracked the porcelain on the actual commode. Never even heard of such nonsense before. Way too much pressure on them buggers. However, if you were wanting to get rid of the bathroom curtains, these things could get it done, even if the curtains were three feet from the toilet.

/// Just sayin' ////

Slashie.

You don't fill them in your garage, you fill them at special filling stations that will replace gas stations.

Heh, yeah I kinda forgot about the 1100CFM that our compressors move, thus their enormous size. I had to sit through an OSHA course today so my brain was mush.

We actually have a Flushmate unit in one of our toilets, but I checked the serial number, and it's outside the recall range.
 
2012-06-27 09:27:55 PM  
Well, looks like ours is on the list. Never had any problems with it. Like Happyhshoe said, the things can flush darn near anything.
/what will I do with no throne?!
//my other toilet's a piece of shiat
