In response to Re: Taming The Autoflush
You are paranoid, or have too much time on your hands. I, like the manufacturers you spoke to, have never seen or heard of one making a "phantom flush". The more common problem is the "vacationing flush" which is never around when you need it. This is usually caused by a misaligned sensor, possibly by a high "handicapped" valve location that does not sense a normal presence at the facility. If the phantom flush is a real concern then you might consider carrying a cloth or leather sack that can be placed over the cap mounted senssor and slid onto the handle types. Ideally it should be an expensive item that you have a fondness for, therefore you would not likely to leave it in place while exiting the present day outhouse. (remember, you could use them without touching the flush mechanism also).
: In the distant brown future, I foresee bathroom technology that will make our lauded act so convenient, sanitary and problem-free that this web site will have no reason to exist. Innovations like anti-gravity toilet seats are sure to usher in a transcendent era of untold cleanliness and ease-of-use. Today, although our cheeks still have to touch sometimes-rancid toilet seats, we do enjoy the precursor of the glorious technology to come: the autoflush sensor.
