I dunno man. I think I'd use up a lot MOAR water if I took a shower EVERY time I had to pee...
 
2019-04-15 06:35:31 PM  
Not?
 
2019-04-15 06:37:22 PM  
Every single time you pee, you have to flush the toilet.

Have they never heard the phrase "If it's yellow let it mellow" ?
 
2019-04-15 06:37:47 PM  
No it isn't. I already do. Why not? I'm already showering, the water is washing it all away... it basically just goes into the same drain pipe. I never understood why some people thought it taboo or gross in the first place.

You could just piss in the sink. Take a few cups to make it go away then.

Except if every time you pee you hear the sound of running water, then each time you hear running water...

Everywhere.

The article says nothing about taking a shower.  It just says you should pee in the shower so you can do this without using water at all.

A guy I knew talked about pissing in the back yard on his dog's morning outing. I asked about doing it in the shower, both he and his wife thought that was gross, but on the lawn was fine. ?

My mom always got mad at me for peeing in the shower.  I suppose if I'd done it while I was washing, she'd have never known.

Here we go again with this concept of "wasted" water.

Pooping in the shower is also Earth friendly.

That's why I take laxatives, keeps you from heeling it down the drain.

I am from the country. My GF gets upset when I Pee outside.    Apparently, when you live in the city that is not looked soon favorably.

Mind you I am not peeing out on the sidewalk. Like in the back yard w/privacy fence.

Now I can tell her I am saving the planet.

Maybe if people lived where there was water we wouldn't be having these issues
 
2019-04-15 06:50:13 PM  
You're not saving water, you're saving energy. The water is ultimately recycled as it goes from toilet to sewage pipes to whatever tanks to wherever it goes (ocean?) and then evaporated and comes back down as rain into the mountains.

Energy that is needed to pump that water to your fifth floor apartment is used, when one flushes the toilet.

/Also, who pees 7 times a day??

I've heard that if your drain is set up wrong and maybe you pee toward the end of your shower the water won't flush it all away and your shower could reek of piss for awhile.  Y'know. From a friend.

It'll reek like piss if the drain is set up correctly too

Pee in the shower so it's a twofer with the water you use.

Lol, a friend of mine years ago was taking a shower with her son. He was old enough to be potty trained but not so old that seeing his mom naked was some kind of traumatic event. She said he got all agitated and she asked what was wrong. He told her he had to pee, and she said "Just go in the shower"  That totally confused him and freaked him out, so he kneeled down, got as close to the drain as he possibly could, and proceeded to pee ONLY into the drain...

If you pee when the shower starts it shouldn't be an issue. You'll get however many gallons of shower water washing it down and clearing it from the drain trap. I'm not even sure how I'd hold it to the end of my shower. Once the shower starts and that warm water is on me I just gotta go.

I pee 7 times before the end of the work day.  Coffee in the morning, water throughout the day, 50+ years of age.  A combo that keeps the bladder busy.

My local pub has installed a more modern urinal. It's quite pleasant to use, but I find that it leaks onto the floor a bit.

Get an eco-friendly turlet with separate flush options for #1 and #2. Or live somewhere with an abundance of cheap fresh water.

Waterless urinals, anyone?
 
2019-04-15 07:15:06 PM  
The article assumes that people are peeing in the shower when the water's not running.  But that's now what's happening.

The water is running, so you are using water when you pee in the shower.  Unless you are peeing while simultaneously washing your hair, which I doubt.

I have to add, I also brush my teeth in the shower. Why do people leave the shower, all clean and smooth, to go gobber toothpaste all over their faces, the counter and mirror? Do it while still in the shower and it all rinses away.

Slightly off-topic: why is it illegal for a man to (discretely) relieve himself along the side of the road?  This is a common practice accepted all throughout Europe and no one seems to have a hissy fit over it but here at home you could be arrested and placed on the sex offender's list for public exhibitionism.  Provided he is not swinging his treasured organ around and exposing himself, I don't see any problem.

I never understood having a urinal and a toilet in a one man bathroom.

Toilet handles both so why the urinal?

I just enjoy peeing outside plus I don't have to climb the stairs

If it's brown, fish it out and puree it, jar it for your next shower.
