I Have A Idea That Will Help Women Save The Planet

Wed Aug 15, 2007 10:12 pm

In most of the world we are very lucky to have toilet facilities - with flush systems and running water. But stop - think how much water is wasted everytime we flush a toilet.

The male of the species is blessed by being able to use Urinals which use far less water. However everytime a woman goes to the toilet is gets a "Full Service Flush".

Could you/me/us invent a female Urinal ? Look at the amount of water it would save. Less water usage could be great in the future world of climate change. Less water usage uses less chemicals to clean.

Women would also benefit as they don't have to queue up as long to the toilet. In future they could be in and out of the toilet as quick as men.

Actually the wonderful low flow toilets in my house have what i call a pee flush and a poo flush.

the pee flush you just hit the handle and it changes out the water in the bowl.

the poo flush you hold the handle down until the tank drains. Sometimes you might have to do this 3-4 times if it was a big poo.. We are really saving water then

I have no idea if they were intentionally designed that way. I just know I had to plunge a lot of poo before i learned about the poo flush. I guess I never thought a toilet needed an instruction manual.

So in short I think someone beat you to it.

using water is hardly endangering the planet, 75% (?) of the earths surface is covered in the stuff!

Its not like flushing the toilet causes global warming...

but some of the side products generated while making a deposit at the toilet do cause global warming.

Female urinals actually already exist but havent proved popular with the female of the species.

If it's yellow let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down.

Actually the 2-stage toilets could save a lot of water in many households and commercial facilities. A modern urnial in the USA uses about 1 Gallon (3.9 L) of water, a full flush in a modern toilet, about 2.5 gallons (9.5 L). I also will let 2 pees 'mellow' at home until I choose to flush to save water, even though I don't pay for it. Saving water can help in a small, but measurable way to 'save the planet', especially in areas where droughts are common or water is scarse.

I thought this was a female urinal?



I used one of those myself once, and was very surprised of their shape. Until a few months ago when a nut job found them sexist and raised havoc for them to be removed.

Slightly off-topic, but my wife told me that this is the type of toilet that she prefers:

Better yet, think of how much water is wasted because of the low flush toilets mandated by building codes these days that require us to flush multiple times when taking a deuce. I think you'll find more water wasted there than the ladies flushing the head.  Wink

They already exist. They just haven't been implemented widely nor will they be I suspect.
