Is installing a pissoir in one's bathroom a good or bad idea?
To me it seems like a great idea, since I'm forever alone and would optimize my bathroom visits.
Are there any downsides you should be aware of?
Plumbings gotta be a certain height (I think) for it to work. You get waterless/unisex/all sorts (apparently) - not my specialist subject either, but, the principles prob. sound enough.
>Extra fixture to (not) clean
>Serves no purpose over a toilet
>Takes up extra space
>Requires you to run a new line in the wall
>Requires you to possibly re-work the wall so it has something to properly anchor
Lets you pee in something slightly higher
>optimize my bathroom visits
>still have to unzip/zip
>still have to flush
>still have to travel to bathroom
>still have to clean it weekly
how is this optimized? Just piss in your empty mountain dew bottles like erryother neckbeard.
Not OP, but this would use less water, and many of them come with hands free flush now. This really works better by your diy workshop more than in your real bathroom though.
I say go for it op. It won't really save you much, but it will make a statement about you being a confirmed bachelor.
If you've got room for it extras like that are usually considered a luxury item in bathroom. Like having room for both a standing shower and a tub. Realtors eat that shit up.
The only downside is if your bathroom is poorly designed and looks more like a public restroom stall that a high-end.
Not that it matters. It's your fucking place, so be cozy. You can always just cap it and fix the hole in the wall later.
I too toyed with the idea of a pisoir in my house but I scrapped it. It boiled down to just one single thing: why have two things that do the same job? Clean one more thing every week etc.
I dunno it just didnt make sense to me in the end. And im not talking about cheapest ugly smelly bar grade pisoirs, nice ones with lid and all.
I just throw them in the trash when they are full. let the landfill deal with it. no need to waste any water. recycling at its finest
replace your toilet with a dual flush. one flush is just a small amount for piss... the other is full slush for your turds... saves water. no need to plumb for a urinal and more expense.
its like you people dont even think
Urinals are easier to not splash and spray piss all over the floor and walls. No one cares about water efficiency. Also, ladies are the biggest proponents as most men are lazy and piss all over the toilet seat.
Not the OP but I'm thinking about this too while planning the design of my future house.
For the people who say it's one more thing to clean, if you live alone you would only ever use the toilet for shitting so wouldnt you have to clean it far less often? And I figure urinals are much easier and faster to clean than a toilet.
About the wasted space, if you put one in a wall corner like pic related it doesn't really take up much space, right?
Upside: Several times more water efficient.
Downsides: Takes work/money to install, might decrease property value (will it be 1.25 baths or what?)
I'd say a good idea if you live somewhere that water costs you significant money.
in Germany we have automates like vending machines where you throw the bottle in a press crushes them and you get a 25 Cents Coupon
>tfw curious about what that machine does with >a full bottle
Why do you think they invented showers.
It does everything a urinal can AND it lets you shit in it AND it works like a bidet.
AND you can wash your hair AND you can prepare dinner in it.
>I figure urinals are much easier and faster to clean than a toilet.
As a former custodian, they take the exact same time to clean. It's not like you actively clean the bank tank.
As far as accuracy is concered, I never have an issue with splashing piss everywhere. Not sure how retarded you have to be to spray piss everywhere. I can get it all in the bowl in the middle of the night with no lights on. The only time accuracy is ever off is after sex and that dried cum makes it shoot out 6 different ways.
Duel flush like >>937091 said is the way to go. Same water usage as a urinal on piss flush.
Aside from ruining the resale value of your house, you mean? You're more or less guaranteeing that any female you ever managed to lure into your house would leave without a single word and never speak to you again.You going to install a hot-air hand dryer in there, too, put a lock on the door that requires a key that's attached to a random inconveniently large used auto part, too?
>wants the bathroom in his house to look like the restroom in a gas station
i put a bottle of soda with some soda still in it into one of those machines. the machine crushed it and liquid seeped out of the bottom and made a huge puddle. the worker there had this dead-but-angry look on his face.
i left and never cashed in my receipts.
>as a woman
>is clear and odorless
>as the dew fade off a mountain stream in the dawn sunrise
- you'll stay single anyway, 'tude on you, luv. Its god-honest piss we be discussing here, & nout to be getting your knickers in a twist about.
depending on how much your male is touchy about pissing while sitting urinal might be a good thing.
I got nothing against sitting to take a piss at home, especially in the morning when i'm half asleep risking making a huge mess or after rooting when i got shotgun stream.
But for an insecure guy who deeply believes pissing while standing is unmanly?
And then continues to spray all round the toilet?
I've 3 young boys in the house. I'd like to install a urinal next to the toilet (there is room) in the kids bathroom. Keep them out of Mommys bathroom, and there would be less waiting for them.Is this sound thinking?
>If you live alone just leave the seat up.
I remember reading an article years back about some university which did a study of toilets and bathrooms and they found that water droplets (and that means shit and piss droplets) can be launched up to _10' from the toilet bowl_ when the toilet is flushed.
Now take a look at where your toothbrush is and where your toilet is....
