There's a little plateau onto which ones "business" would presumably land. It unsettles me.


Not all toilets have that here in Germany. The ones in our house don't, for example.

I hate those with a shelf myself. And those that have a water box that is emptied for flushing. I prefer those that use the water pressure to flush.

At least this Thread™ is managing to resist toilet humour at the moment.

Thanks to the Loony Empress for her clarification, now if she would just kindly use her influence to make those toilets, which we both hate, vanish from all existence, that would be peachy.

I think they should be defended as an example of eccentricity, which is a thoroughly important thing in an all-too-uniform world. Like separate hot and cold taps.

Separate hot and cold taps are a truly wonderful thing! How lazy must one be to require a single tap? Heresy it is, pure heresy!

I agree, but the weight of opposition to our viewpoint is becoming ever stronger...

Yes, Mel, you're right. There should be a single blue tap and a single red tap at every basin. Two separate taps. Wonderful .

You're distracted from the real issue here which is: why in disabled toilets do they always have those tiny basins that you need to be an able-bodied contortionist to fit your hands into, they're so small...

Maybe disabled people should just stay home?

Have you ever tried running a shower attachment off separate hot and cold taps? You pull the rubber things over the individual taps and you know one side or the other (or on rare ocasions both) will spring off just when you turn the water on.

With a mixer tap you can plumb that in direct thus avoiding paiin and confusion for those of us that have just got up early to get ready for our daily commute. (When I shower that is. Not now.I've been at work for hours now)

No, I can't say that I've ever used a "shower attachment", I prefer my fixtures to be plumbed in.

So you not only want a separate hot and cold tap but a separate shower in addition to those. Is there no end to your demands?

Have you ever thought of all the extra plumbing and electrics required for a separate shower? With a mixer tap you can plumb it directly into the tap(s) saving an enormous amount of excess material and it does the job just as well too.

My bath at home has two taps and a shower unit. It works perfectly well. It makes me happy!

Well, if we're showing off, my house has a bath with two taps and a shower with a wee lever to switch between them, plus I also have 2 OTHER showers...
