    Yes , I will be installing my dream .
    A true hands free urinal in my very own bathroom .
    Not some girly thing that you can play music on , just a plain , simple , no lid , hands free urinal .
    I may even stock some of them scented cakes for it just for that realistic touch . :cool::grin:

    You must feel like I did when I installed a pressure-assist toilet. I couldn't face the prospect of a 1-1/2 gallon toilet that requires 3 flushings (to save water).

    If you're going for the full monte... add some wads of chewing gum and cigarette butts as well.

    The first time I used one of these, I stood in front and waited, nothing happened. I still had to use my own hands

    Is it auto-flush, or no-flush?

    The secret is in the fairly expensive chemical cartridge, which has to be replaced periodically. My employer uses them in most of his stores (gas stations).

    We have some of those where I work (3000 + employees at this location) and they do get VERY stinky.

    I completely avoid these restrooms. Perhaps the maintenance guys are unaware of how to clean and maintain, but honestly sometimes the smell is enough to make you gag. I always thought that someone in leadership thought it was a great idea to get people back to work.

    "a 1-1/2 gallon toilet that requires 3 flushings (to save water)."

    I replace the flush valve with one that has a taller overflow pipe. I think they were parts for a "stylish" French Country commode that has a taller, narrower tank. Adjust the fill valve. The water is now 1 1/2" below the top of the tank, instead or 5/7" below the top. Flushes every time! Simple job.

    Edited to add that it's probably illegal to do this potty mod!

    No way , it will be mine .
    Just the idea of being the first man to grace it with my pee ......
    Ladies will be encouraged to try it , of course . ;)
    Oh yeah , the hands free thing is in reference to being motion/proximity sensor controlled .
    Spray it with a wee bit of Clorox every so often and simply walk away . I love it .

    I would rather go behind the gas station than use some of these restrooms.

    On the other hand, the grafitti can be very entertaining.

    Fascinating

    What an eye opener. I remember seeing a hint of some of what's covered in "Slumdog Millionaire". A serious issue.
