dkimball: To save water, you would have to pee before starting the water..because if you just stand there for 15 seconds peeing, that's the same amount of water.


Multitask.  Shampoo your hair while you're pissing.  It's not like you have to use a hand to aim while in the shower.

Langdon Alger: my girlfriend in college could pee in the sink in my dorm room so she didn't have to go down the hall to the community style bathrooms and risk being caught by an RA for visiting after hours. She was good at it too because she had a small bladder and always had to pee after sex.


Girls don't pee after sex because they have a small bladder

Elegy: Pee in my shower, I'll break your farking legs. That's disgusting.


It's the only thing that cured me of my athlete's foot. When I first heard of doing it, I was like, "no way", but then every OTC remedy I'd tried had failed, so I gave it a shot, so to speak.

Worked so well, and so fast that after a few days, I started "saving up" for my evening shower.

And me and Mrs. Nuisance always shower together and we both pee there.

We do have the courtesy of holding it when one is "upstream" of the other....

Peeing in the shower is for amateurs. I cook in my shower. I tried to install a garbarge disposer, but I think there's a misprint in the manual.

MrSteve007: The long winded - Caroma Profile Smart 305 Round Front Plus toilet. That's its actual name.
/not cheap


As my post above would indicate, we're pretty meticulous water savers. We have two Caromas, but not the ones with the sinks built in (they didn't exist when we installed ours almost ten years ago).

But I've always wondered, where the heck do you stand to wash your hands, in the bowl? It just looks a tad awkward to use.

I concur that the best is a big yard with trees and fences. Just don't use the same spot repeatedly. Aside from the eventual stink, it messes with the soil pH. I went to a party one summer where the host's house was low to the water table (just outside Annapolis). He directed the male guests to use a particular tree. This was a big party, lasted til dawn and there was pretty much a line at the tree the whole time.

Tree was dead by winter.

ha-ha-guy: I want to install one of those waterless urinals in my bathroom. My wife won't let me though.

/I think you have to spray them down at least once a day to avoid the odor, which is the big sticking point
//on one hand you save water, on the other hand you spray some chemical down the drain everyday to clean them


No you don't. As a a plumber I can tell you that is the worst idea ever. The seals constantly leak, the maintenance is horrible and not crushing the urine down with water causes the uric acid to build up on the walls of your pipes and chrystalize. I had clients insist that I put them in and they all wanted the pulled out with a couple if years. I won't even install then anymore.
