Dual-purpose plumbing



This sensible bit of plumbing was found by Tania. Rather than going through all the bother of installing a waste pipe, you can just use the drain for your bath, shower, and toilet! So practical! And a time-saver, too: you can perform all your morning ablutions simultaneously.

Ooh! Am I the first poster? This bathroom is great for the guys with poor aim. No muss, no fuss!

I couldn't get through your email, so I thought I'd volunteer the following ad, from WV. I'm not sure what to say about the bed in the attic. It seems that something should be said.

I wonder how many people are going to wonder what "ablutions" are. Keep up the good vocabulary!

Hi Jorg- That's not an attic, that's the loft indicated in the listing. i grew up going to a cabin like that in northern Michigan, and the kids fought over who got the loft; we could perch and spy over everybody, it was our fort and secret hideaway. I'd be all over your foun dlisting but for the tiny snag of a 3/4 million dollar price tag.

I was just thinking this morning as I was running late again, dang, I wish the toilet was in the shower, I could take care of business! Just hand me my toothbrush, please, and I'm all set!

This is the ugly consequence of the american fear of bidets!

And with the sink, who needs a urinal?

This is the perfect space saving solution - now put a bed in there and let it out as a holiday apartment

While the Toilet Tub was designed as a time-saver by allowing one to take a refreshing shower while relieving oneself, its popularity eventually went the way of the meal-oriented time saver, the Toilet Tray.

Think about how easy it would be to clean the toilet though!

Ha ha, that is hilarious! I am all about multi-tasking!!

Brings new meaning to peeing in the shower, doesn't it?

Brandy said...

June Cleaver maniacally scrubbed the toilet. So hard to clean... then clean the soap off of... Her eyes lit up at the idea, as she searched Ward's toolbox for a wrench....

Is this one of those weird Massachusetts building-code things like locating the bathroom light switch outside the bathroom?

Monster Librarian said...

Ha ha ha...that reminded me of the Seinfeld where Kramer put a garbage disposal in the bathtub! HA!

This made me think of an episode of "Fairly Odd Parents" (why yes, I watch that show, and I enjoy it!)

Timmy's dad was celebrating what he thought was a holiday and built "The Recloilet" which was a recliner with a toilet built in. Maybe he had something to do with this?

And 0 square feet!

Yes, Jorg, and it's a good thing the bed posts aren't any taller!

Is it wrong that i think this might be a good idea. I'm genuinely debating pros and cons here.

Well, with a steam-proof mirror, this is an illustration of "shit, shower & shave".

I know some guys that would buy that, actually. . .
