    In the day of the outhouse, the question was never satisfactorily answered; Is the outhouse half full, or half empty?

    I worked as a janitor for a couple years in high school and only had to clean two real estate office buildings, bathrooms were (fortunately) never my responsibility. Every time I see one of the pressure flush toilets I think to myself "janitors must love these things" since they seem difficult to clog. Their job is bad enough, and usually thankless for that matter, so I like seeing things that spare them a nasty experience.

    For home use? Nah... I eat enough fiber.

    I have a neighbor with a two hole outhouse with windows facing a million dollar view while you are seated.

    We have never had a back up, I know they happen, but I'm not sure how, unless there's something fundamentally wrong with the plumbing or puts something in there that doesn't go in there. I just like the way these pressure assist units work, it's like a magic trick. Just seems quicker and cleaner.

    My buddy has an added basement bathroom where he didn't want to run a wasteline to tie into his waste line through the concrete floor so he installed it using a chopper box and pump system.

    He's had to work on that a couple times. I did not go over and help him...

    Sounds way over complicated. In my day we ate the kinda food that didn’t require a flush toilet.

    It’d make you go so hard it would blast its own way straight to the sewer.

    And burn the pipes clean on the way.

    My toilet is pretty interesting. If I walk into the bathroom, a sensor raises the lid automatically. The seat is electrically heated, when I sit, the toilet sprays mist into the bowl to prevent anything sticking to it.

    The controls are electronic, it has a built in bidet and rinse, the water is heated to make it more comfortable. It also has a deodorizer, massage, and dryer.

    It wasn’t cheap, costing around $3000.

    I have a Kohler toilet with a Flushmate in the guest bathroom. It will flush a cat into the septic tank if need be. It is loud and fills up in around 30 seconds. Only problem is that you have to jiggle the handle after you flush, otherwise it never re-pressurizes and won't flush. I've tried adjusting it and explaining to guests that "you need to jiggle the handle afterwards". I'm thinking of removing the Flushmate.

    If I hadn't seen one of these 'spaceships' in real life in hotel rooms during my travels in Asia, I wouldn't have believed you!

    I was too scared to use it, it case it sprayed water or air when and where it shouldn't!!

    If they are the same as some of the newer gas stations have, you almost need hearing protection when you flush. It sounds like an F-14 flying by !

    The only pressurised toilets that I'm aware of, are the ones on airliners. I cautioned my kids (pre-teens at the time) about how loud they flushed so they wouldn't get a fright (during their first international long-haul flight). They thought Dad was just pranking them and so ignored my fair warning. You should've seen the whites of their eyes in their traumatised faces as they made their way back to their seats... hilarious!
