    There are two recurring themes that pop up over and over on the forum:\

    1) Low flush...and now even lower flush.....toilets. Govermnent really pushing this one.

    2) More and more multiples in shower heads, 3/4" shower valves for more flow...what's next? 1"?


    Am I missing something here? Is it a good thing to be very clean but ultimately we will be pooping out in the bushes???


    Merry Christmas!

    showers

    Maybe integrated toilet/shower stalls so that excessive water performs a useful function. Squat toilets are popular in the Eastern nations, maybe some one will come up with a version here.

    hj's on to something. How about integrated prison ware fixtures. Sanitary and explosion resistant to boot.

    That first picture, a friend of mine in NZ, collects it that way from his roof. I don't know if he is just cheap OR if that is common there because of the price of water in Nz. It is very expensive I was told. I will have to ask him to see.

    The second one, I got one of those at my camp,
    NO WAY mister...:D

    You are put back to the drawing board.

    OH, I didnt see the third one lol.
