The silliest design I have seen.
Can someone please explain the practicality of the Italian designed bowl ?Do you mean a bidet? They're for washing your family jewels and ringpiece, not for laying cable. Unless you're particularly sexually active, they're a waste of space and money.
The silliest design I have seen.
The type where #2 doesn't land In any water and Instead lands on a type of spillway with the wast hole way forwards.Sounds more like Dutch toilets with their 'flachspüler' or 'inspection shelf'. It allows them to have a good poke around before flushing. May seem horrific at first but the they are a very health aware people, and generally know how to read a stool for signs of health problems. If there were a few more in Australia it could help reduce the Medicare levy.
Given people are talking about high and low tide, this type has no tide.
Maybe the problems might need the attention of a plumber, otherwise known as a urologist. Interference with the flow rate and a spray nozzle effect could indicate blockage eg enlarged prostate. The catchment area on most bowls regardless of the water level or flushing method is not much different and so overspray can happen on any of them.I doubt it, go back and read what I posted to start this discussion, it has naught to do with my pisser, more to do with the dunny design.

She has an almost totally absent sense of smell, and I often have to poke my nose in the fridge to find out what she has forgotten....
I've found the high tide in Yankee loos to be quite unnerving.
Thinking of redesigning the can? Hmmm, with risk of getting TMI, been spending a bit of time using one eh?
Yes, takes a bit of getting used to. But also the low set cistern I found in Canada. Not comfortable to lean back against.It would be a real bugger if you dropped your iPad while reading on the job.
Still all better than the squat toilets, I hate them with a passion for doing No.2's as I cannot squat flat footed and its all about getting the job done, no reading option when your balancing on your toes and trying to reach behind to clean up while at the same time the blood in your lower legs is quickly stagnating and your are loosing feeling of your toes. However my wife says in heels and wearing A style dress/skirt they are easy, but I guess I'll leave that for the fem's to explore.

Way too much information.I remember the "shelf" in Germany. You go and it sits there just below your butt. No splash back though, os I suppose bonus. I used to put sheets down prior to prevent any potentially sticky "stools" from not going down the S bend.

Given that I get accused of pissing all over the place (I don't actually) by the wifely substances, I reckon I have been set up by the design of our dunny.
The classic Aussie bowl has a mad flushing action that causes lots of spray in the bowl, and I reckon that spray, containing parts of which you are trying to dispose, gets up onto the seat and the lid. And my view is that this is a bad design.
The American bowl is shallower, has more water in it, and flushes in a gentle swirling action that does not throw up spray. I reckon they got a better design than we did.
Therefore, I reckon the bloke in the household is getting the raw end of the deal and being accused of a crime he is not guilty of.
you need to put new rubber seals in the fresh water
I don't want to find seals (rubber or otherwise) or any other life-forms in my pan!I reckon there is a book in those stories. 'Globetrotting Crapper' perhaps?
Having spent by far the greater proportion of my lavatorial life in the UK, having experience of facilities across much of mainland Europe and SE Asia and of thunderboxes new and old I am of the opinion that there is a design deficiency in the averagely-aged Australian Arsenal.
The newer ones might be an improvement but a typical home might contain something 20 - 40 years old. They don't seem to come clean as the UK / European ones do. I'm the constant in the equation. It must be the variable which is at fault.
Having been something of a festival-goer in my yoof I have become quite intimately acquainted with the Portaloo, Kenny-box, Port-a-potty or whatever. Nothing says "Glastonbury" quite like kneeling at the altar in a pool of stale wet with your feet out of the uncloseable door whilst last night's curry returns whence it entered.
In more amenable moments there have been times when the differences became apparent. The spring-loaded flaps at the base of the pan seem to have stronger springs in Australia. In the UK one can expect any arrival in the pan to trigger the flap. Here, on the other hand, one requires a capacious bladder to achieve a "six-flapper" while even a firm stool will stay firmly on the top until flushed.
For fans of squatting pans the instructions for use inside these portable potty-houses make for educational reading. "This toilet is intended only for sitting. Do not stand or squat". It takes no imagination at all to understand where each and every one has had an H inserted into that text by a previous user.
And if, as per instructions, one does not stand then all of our little extension pipes are redundant. Perhaps they know we can't shoot straight
