    Toilet depth

    So I was drinking with some friends last night at home and one of my buddies commented on the new toilet in my bathroom and we got into a discussion about proper shall we say "muzzle" to water distance to avoid the dreaded splash back whilst taking the Browns to the Superbowl.

    My new toilet does seem to have a much deeper bowl than older models which led to someone referencing the English Table of Drops Official Table of Drops - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Do toilet manufacturers take such things into account?

    Sorry if this is disgusting to some but inquiring minds want to know!

    Now here is an interesting thread. I am not sure if toilet manufacturers reference gallows data when designing their products, but I am of the opinion this is unnecessary when we are dealing with a healthy sphincter/waste interface. As we expel, the sphincter is designed to close in such a way as to leave a certain streamlining on the hind end of the 'product', much the same as when a diver enters the water, so as to minimise any potential for the splashback you mention. God does indeed move in mysterious ways!

    Should we be suffering from increased stress in our lives, or be a fan of the 'back door boogie', there may be instances where some cold water will surprise us, and this is where soothing music, a good book, or gentle heating around the bowl would be a good idea...

    Luckily we do not live in some European countries, where they are still inclined to use the 'inspection platform' toilets, AKA 'the Continental Shelf'. These are designed for perverts and people with no sense of smell.
    It's all Here. Now.

    I thought the turd was tapered so your azzhole didn't slam shut. Ya learn something every day although I'm not sure of the source.

    Shouldn't this go in the official poop thread? Here we go with duplicate threads again.

    Toilet depth

    I'm curious about the actual height of the seat. The ones here at work are so low, it's like squatting down. Your ass feels like its scraping the ground.
    The ones at my house (1 year old) feel a little too tall, causing numbness in my legs after only a couple minutes.

    Go to your LTS and ask about a professional fitting.

    So you're telling me that even cavemen were meant to poop in water? hmm, never thought about it like that

    Very nice indeed. This toilet comes with music, heating, light, speakers, FM turner, and advanced bidet wand. The light is for ambiance but I'd guess a full featured Toilet would have a light for reading and inspection. All for $6500 and change.

    The key is to lean forward a bit to give the "product" more of an angle to enter. Thus, less splashy splashy. That is unless your sputter-butting it. That's like throwing a handful of rocks into the water at once.

    According to the "Table of Drops"..
    Giant Growler's need less distance, and hang time than
    Tiny Turd's that must be unleashed from the upper stratosphere.

    Tough to know what you're packing, so for the poop-obsessed OC,
    adjustable height toilets are now available online at Hammlecher & Schlemmer's.
    The best is the one you want to ride most often..

    Splash back is the least of my worries, im more concerned with enough clearance from muzzle to water so i dont "stir" the funky liquid.

    I just wish you could test drive a few models before committing on a purchase.

    Don't worry, I am pretty sure there are laws stating the water has to be more than an inch from the seat. You should be fine.

    I get a couple calls per year from elderly men who have sagged gonads that hang in the juice. They ask if I can somehow lower the water table so they don't stir the juice.

    Try pulling the refill tube out of the overflow tube. If the flapper closing is timed by the water level the water level will settle lower in the bowl. I actually have gottin quite a following customizing thunder jugs..

    I spend money to advertize in the yellow pages for just these issues..i sometimes question my line of work after 4 years of college..
    lean forward

    I wish I would've know this before changing out the whole throne when I first bought this place. The dolphin was checking the seabed everytime I took a seat. Oh well, the seat was too short anyway, like driving a Dodge Neon rental car.

    My toilet works perfectly or fails depending on the consistency of my movements.
