The service station trade was slow.
The owner sat around,
With sharpened knife and cedar stick.
Piled shavings on the ground.

No modern facilities had they,
The log across the rill
Led to a shack, marked His and Hers
That sat against the hill.

"Where is the ladies restroom, sir?"
The owner leaning back,
Said not a word but whittled on,
And nodded toward the shack.

With quickened step she entered there
But only stayed a minute,
Until she screamed, just like a snake
Or spider might be in it.

With startled look and beet red face
She bounded through the door,
And headed quickly for the car.
Just like three gals before.

She missed the foot log -- jumped the stream
The owner gave a shout,
As her silk stockings, down at her knees
Caught on a sassafras sprout.

She tripped and fell -- got up,
And then In obvious disgust,
Ran to the car, stepped on the gas,
And faded in the dust.

Of course we all desired to know
What made the gals all do
The things they did, and then we found
The whittling owner knew.

A speaking system he'd devised
To make the thing complete,
He tied a speaker on the wall
Beneath the toilet seat.

He'd wait until the gals got set
And then the devilish guy
Would stop his whittling long enough,
To speak into the mike.

And as she sat, a voice below
Struck terror, fright and fear
"Will you please use the other hole,
We're painting under here.

I am woman, here me roar,
I can't take this, any more,
This stall lock, just won't work,
Must be built, by some male jerk,
Now I have to, improvise,
To sit like this, is not too wise,
'Cause if I pee, it hits the floor,
When my feet, must hold the door.

An old woman is riding in an elevator in a very lavish downtown Toronto building, when a young and beautiful woman gets into the elevator, smelling of expensive perfume. She turns to the old woman and says arrogantly, "Romance" by Ralph Lauren, $150 an ounce!" Then another young and beautiful woman gets on the elevator, and also very arrogantly turns to the old woman saying, "Channel No. 5, $200 an ounce!" About three floors later, the old woman has reached her destination and is about to get off the elevator. Before she leaves, she looks both beautiful women in the eye, then bends over and farts and says...........
"Broccoli 49 cents a pound."

Recycled toilet paper

Toilet paper made from recycled paper is a cheaper and less-white paper, but has many benefits.

If every American household replaced just one toilet paper roll of virgin-fiber a year with a roll made from 100% recycled paper, approximately 425,000 trees would be saved annually.

The first step in the process of making toiler paper from recycled paper is creating paper pulp, which is generated from recycled materials.

Toilet paper made from recycled paper contains colored and white stock with staples. Other materials needed are water, chemicals and bleaches. How much water is mixed with other materials in depends on the particular product being made.

How toilet paper is made from recycled materials?


1. Recycled paper needs to be washed with water to create a pulp. The recyclable paper products are dumped into a large bin with warm water.

2. Air bubbles are injecting into the water to remove ink or any color.

3. The pulp goes through a bleaching process to make it whiter (it is whitened and sanitized with oxygen-based products like peroxide).

4. When the pulp is bleached it enters the paper forming section.

5. Water is removed by pressing the wet paper between rolls and felts.

6. The moisture content is reduced to the desired level and the pulp is laid on a large, flat surface to dry.

7. The paper is stamped with the little embossing for the strength (the embossing could be found on some toilet paper rolls).

8. The giant, thin sheet of paper is fed onto a roller.

9. Next is creating a roll of two-ply paper. Two of the large rolls of paper transfer the paper into another roller with long cardboard tube.

10. The paper is cut and glued by a mechanical arm to prevent unraveling.

11. The long rolls of two-ply paper then are cut by a circular saw.

12. Toilet paper for individual sales is individually wrapped in paper, while others are stacked and wrapped in clear plastic (from 4 to 30 rolls).

The toilet paper manufacturing process

The biggest difference between toilet papers is the distinction between virgin paper products (formed from chipped wood) and those made from recycled paper. So there are two kind of manufacturing process for the toilet paper.

The toilet paper manufacturing process starts by creating a paper. Paper is sometimes created from recycled materials, but materials like virgin tree pulp is also used. The toilet paper we use today is usually a paper made from trees, but the paper from hemp plant is used too. When hemp plants are used, we get the paper from hemp’s fiber and pulp. However, most toilet paper today is made from a “chemical pulp”.

Materials needed to make toilet paper are:

  • Trees
  • Water
  • Chemicals for extracting fiber
  • Bleaches like chlorine dioxide
For paper recycling, companies use oxygen, ozone, sodium hydroxide, or peroxide to whiten the recycled paper.
Toilet paper is often perforated, scented, embossed and colored.
There are several differences in manufacturing process depending on what materials are used to make toilet paper.
If toilet paper is made of recycled paper, process starts by many different kinds of paper being mixed together. Next step is choosing a solution to remove ink. Recycled paper needs to be washed and is often deinked prior to being pulped. Toilet paper is then pulverized and reformed into very thin and soft paper. At the end of process toilet paper is bleached and scented.

Making toilet paper from the trees

Manufacturers don't use all types of trees to make paper. Toilet paper is generally made from "virgin" paper, using a combination of softwood and hardwood trees (a combination of approximately 70% hardwood and 30% softwood). The paper manufacturers try to find a compromise between durability and a fine writing surface on their product. Other materials for final product of toilet paper include water, chemicals and bleaches.
  1. Preparing trees (a combination of softwood and hardwood trees). Trees are stripped of their bark.
  2. The logs are carefully debarked with machine to leave as much wood as possible.
  3. The logs pass through machines that chip them into small pieces.
  4. The wood chips are separated into batches.
  5. A massive pressure cooker (a digester) cooks the wood chips with other chemicals for approximately 3 hours. The moisture in the wood is evaporated and the mass is reduces to cellulose fibers, lignin and other substances. Result is usable fiber, called pulp. The pulp is what paper is made from.
  6. The pulp is then washed clean of the lignin and the cooking chemicals.
  7. The washed pulp is bleached until all the color is removed. The adhesive that binds fibers together (lignin) must be removed from the pulp or the paper will become yellow over time.
  8. The pulp is mixed with a lot of water to produce paper stock (99.5% water and 0.5% fiber). The paper stock is sprayed onto screens of mesh that drain the water.
  9. The paper is then pressed and dried to final moisture (content about 5%).
  10. The paper is scraped off with metal blades and wound on jumbo reels. Then the paper is moved to machines that cut it into long strips and perforate it into squares. Finally, the paper logs are cut into rolls and wrapped packages.

What is toilet paper made off?

The main ingredient for toilet paper is paper. The papers are made from new "virgin" paper or recycled paper. Unfortunately, today almost all of the paper is "virgin", paper that is made of wood fibers.
Foresters divide trees into two categories: hardwood and softwood species. Paper made from trees is usually combination of softwood and hardwood trees. The softwoods in common use are pine and spruce. The hardwoods are oak and maple. Hardwood trees have wood with very short fibers and paper is weaker than that made from softwoods. Softwood trees have wood with long fibers, and paper made from this type of wood is much stronger. Most of the paper is made from both hardwoods and softwoods to get combination of strength, whiteness and other necessary characteristics.
The pulp is a mat of fibers from trees and it is main ingredient for paper. The basic recipe for paper include: wood, water and energy. Producing a ton of paper requires 20 trees and 7,000 more gallons of water.
Recycled paper is paper that contains fiber from waste paper; it starts by many different kinds of paper being mixed together. Recycled toilet paper takes 50% less energy to produce than virgin paper.
At the end, we add to toilet paper number of dry strength additives, wet strength additives, etc. Other ingredients include different chemicals, perfumes and bleaches. The fragrances in toilet paper sometimes cause problems for consumers who are allergic to perfumes. Oxygen, ozone, sodium hydroxide and peroxide are used to whiten the paper. Chlorine-based bleaches (chlorine dioxide), is identified as a threat to the environment.
Toilet paper is sanitary paper and personal product that need to be clean and hygienic.

Who invented toilet paper?

Today it’s difficult to imagine life without toilet paper. The evolution of toilet paper is an interesting story and the toilet paper has an amazing past.
If we could travel back in time, what would we found about the first use of toilet paper? Who invented toilet paper? Who was using paper for personal hygiene? Who invented modern toilet paper roll?
Nobody is too sure when toilet paper was first used. Before the invention of toilet paper, people from different parts of the world had many different ideas for personal hygiene. Some people used stones or sponges (especially rich Romans), but a variety of other things were used also.
The first “official” toilet paper was introduced in China in 1391, but the first mention of toilet paper (paper for personal hygiene) dates back to the year 589 AD in Korea. Between 875 and 1317 AD, paper was produced in large sheets (2-foot x 3-foot sheets and even perfumed) for Chinese emperor’s family hygiene.
In the Colonial America, the common means was corncobs.
Paper was a rare commodity until the 17th or 18th centuries. The first reference to paper as toilet paper was recorded in 1718. After invention of paper pages from newspapers and magazines were also commonly used (newspapers became widely available at 1700s.)
Joseph C. Gayetty invented the first packaged toilet paper in the United States in 1857. Joseph C. Gayetty is credited as the inventor of modern commercially available toilet paper. "Gayetty’s Medicated Paper" was sold in packages of flat sheets, medicated with aloe and watermarked with his name. Gayety’s toilet paper was available as late as the 1920's.
In 1871, Seth Wheeler (to some sources Zeth Wheeler) of Albany became the official “inventor” of toilet paper. Seth Wheeler patents rolled and perforated wrapping paper. His Albany Perforated Wrapping Paper Company began selling the first toilet paper on a roll.
Rolled and perforated toilet paper was invented around 1880. In 1879, Thomas Seymour, Edward Irvin and Clarence Wood Scott founded the Scott Paper Company in Philadelphia. Scott brothers came up with the idea of customizing rolls for every merchant-customer they had. They began selling packages of small rolls and stacked sheets. Scott Paper Company began producing toilet paper under its own brand name in 1896. By 1925 Scott Company became the leading toilet paper company in the world.
The first documented use of a roll of toilet paper was in 1882 in New York State.
In 1935 Northern Tissue invented splinter free toilet paper. Simple paper making procedures often failed to remove small splinters from the finished product but Northern Paper engineers solved the problem (method called linenizing). Softer, splinter-free toilet paper then became a reality for consumers and provided an advertising slogan for Northern Tissue.
In 1942 St. Andrew’s Paper Mill (England, Walthamstow, London), produced the first soft, two ply toilet tissue.
In 1954 was produced the first colored toilet tissue by Northern.
In 1964 was produced perfumed one-ply toilet tissue by Charmin
America experienced its first toilet paper shortage in 1973 because Johnny Carson’s (one of America’s most loved comedians) jokes.

Who invented toilet paper? So many inventors, so many contradicting historical recourses... Who do you think was the inventor of toilet paper?

Before Toilet Paper

What did people use before toilet paper was invented?
Before the advent of modern toilet paper many different materials were used for the same purposes. Different materials were used depending upon the country, weather conditions, social customs and status.
People used leaves, grass, ferns, corn cobs, maize, fruit skins, seashells, stone, sand, moss, snow and water. The simplest way was physical use of one's hand. Wealthy people usually used wool, lace or hemp.
Romans were the cleanest. Wealthy used wool and rosewater and others used sponge attached to a wooden stick, soaked in a bucket of salt water.
The Greeks would use clay.
In Coastal Regions, mussel shells were used (and sometimes coconut husk).
Europeans used hand (but they also used fountains with luxury of warm water).
People from Islamic cultures used they left hand with little water (they are still doing that today). This is why it is offensive to greet someone with your left hand.
The Eskimos would use moss or snow.
The Vikings used wool.
The Colonial Americans used the core center cobs from shelled ears of corn.
The Mayans used corn cobs.
The French invented the first bidet (of course without of modern plumbing).
The Chinese invented the first toilet paper as we know it in the 14th Century.
Later people used pages from a books, newspapers, catalogs, etc.
History of toilet paper
Although we take toilet paper for granted, toilet paper has a relatively short history in the modern world.
In 875 CE Chinese invented wrapping and padding material known as paper. There are many evidences that confirm that they used that paper like toilet paper too.
Historically the first modern toilet paper was made in 1391, when it was created for the needs of the Chinese Emperor family. Each sheet of toilet paper was even perfumed. That was toilet paper as we have come to think of it.
In the late fifteenth century, paper became widely available. However, mass manufacturing of modern toilet paper began in the late 19th century.
Joseph C. Gayetty created the first commercially packaged toilet paper in 1857. His toilet papers were loose, flat, sheets of paper. Joseph founded The Gayetty Firm for toilet paper production in New Jersey and his first factory-made toilet paper was "The Therapeutic Paper”. This first toilet paper in flat sheets was medicated with aloe. Gayetty named it “Gayetty’s Medicated Paper.” Joseph Gayetty printed his name on every sheet. Unfortunately, this invention failed.
Thomas Seymour, Edward Irvin and Clarence Wood Scott began selling some kind of toilet paper in Philadelphia in 1867. In 1879, Scott brothers founded the Scott Paper Company. The Scott Paper Company's toilet paper was the first toilet paper sold in rolls. In 1890 the Scott Paper Company made its Waldorf brand toilet paper in rolls.
In 1871, Zeth Wheeler patents rolled and perforated toilet paper. In 1877 he founded the Albany Perforated Wrapping Paper Company. In 1897, company began selling and marketing standard perforated toilet paper on a roll.
In 1879, Walter Alcock, a British businessman, created toilet paper on a roll, too. He was the first that used the perforated toilet roll instead of the common flat sheets.
In 1880 the British Perforated Paper Company began selling toilet paper. That toilet paper was sold in boxes of individual squares.
In 1885 Oliver Hewlett Hicks patented package of toilet paper and the manufacturing process.
In 1896, Irvin's son Arthur Scott joined the Scott Paper Company. In 1921 Waldorf brand represented 64% of Scott's total case sales. Company became the leading toilet paper company in the world.
In 1928, German, Hans Klenk become the first toilet paper rolls seller in Europe.
In 1942 toilet paper becomes softer, St. Andrew's Paper Mill in England began selling the first two-ply toilet paper. Today two-ply toilet paper is the standard in many countries.
In 1935 Northern Tissue invented splinter free toilet paper.
In 1973, America experienced first toilet paper shortage. In December 1973 after one of Carson’s jokes (Johnny Carson, one of America’s most loved comedians) scared consumers into stockpiling supplies.
At the time, people did not speak of the toilet paper frequently. In conservative era it was 'unmentionable" to talk about this product. However, people had a desire for better hygiene and toilet paper slowly fit into the consumer market.
Today the manufacture of toilet paper is a large industry. The modern toilet paper has definitely made life much easier and more hygienic for us all.

Toilet Paper History

Can you imagine your everyday life without toilet paper?
If you can, you are not alone! According to some studies, more than 70% of people in the world, don't use toilet paper! In many countries toilet paper is uncommon even for rich people. Some people don't use toilet paper because of tradition, some because of religion and for some it's too expensive.
Have you ever thought about the origins of modern toilet papers? Toilet paper carries an amazing historical past, from the toilet paper that Chinese Emperor Family used, to modern 19th century USA toilet paper factories and today's soft and perfumed more-ply toilet paper. Toilet paper has interesting history, but what do you think toilet paper of the future will look like?
However, toilet paper is important invention. Not just because it practical, but is also hygienic.
Flushing mechanisms
The flushing mechanism provides a large flow of water into the bowl (which is described later in this article). The mechanism usually incorporates one or more parts of the following designs:

[edit] Tank fill valves

external image magnify-clip.pngThe Ballcock or Float Valve is often used to regulate the filling of a tank or cistern. When the fluid level drops, the float descends, levering the valve opening and allowing more fluid to enter. Once the float reached the 'full' position, the arm presses the valve shut again.
Tank fill valves are found in all tank-style toilets. The valves are of two main designs: the side-float design and the concentric-float design. The side-float design has existed for over a hundred years. The concentric-design has only existed since 1957, but is gradually becoming more popular than the side-float design, and Fluidmaster, founded in the United States by inventor Adolf Schoepe, makes them.
The side-float design incorporates a float, usually ball-shaped, which is located to one side of the main valve tower at the end of a rod or arm. As the side-float rises, so does the side-float-arm. The arm is connected to a linkage which blocks the water flow into the toilet tank, and thus maintains a constant level in the tank.
external image 220px-Concentric_Float_Valve.svg.pngexternal image magnify-clip.pngOne type of Concentric Float Valve. The Concentric Float valve opens when the fluid level is low, allowing more fluid to enter (Figure 1). When the fluid level returns to the full level, the valve is shut (Figure 2).
The newer concentric-float fill valve consists of a tower which is encircled by a plastic float assembly. Operation is otherwise the same as a side-float fill valve, even though the float position is somewhat different. By virtue of its more compact layout, interference between the float and other obstacles (tank insulation, flush valve, and so on) is greatly reduced, thus increasing reliability. The concentric-float fill valve is also designed to signal to users automatically when there is a leak in the tank, by making much more noise when a leak is present than the older style side-float fill valve, which tends to be nearly silent when a slow leak is present.

[edit] Tank style with flapper-flush-valve

external image 220px-Gravity_toilet_valves_handle_down.svg.pngexternal image magnify-clip.pngA traditional gravity toilet tank concluding the flush cycle. As the water level in the tank drops, the flush valve flapper falls back to the bottom, stopping the main flow to the flush tube. Because the tank water level has yet to reach the fill line, water continues to flow from the tank and bowl fill tubes. When the water again reaches the fill line, the float will release the fill valve shaft and water flow will stop. 1. float, 2. fill valve, 3. lift arm, 4. tank fill tube, 5. bowl fill tube, 6. flush valve flapper, 7. overflow tube, 8. flush handle, 9. chain, 10. fill line, 11. fill valve shaft, 12. flush tube
In a tank-based system, the storage tank (or cistern) collects between 6 and 17 liters of water over a period of time. This system is suitable for locations plumbed with 1/2" (15 mm) or 3/8" (10 mm) water pipes. The storage tank is kept full by a tank fill-valve. The storage tank is usually mounted directly upon the bowl, although some tanks are mounted on the wall above the bowl in an attempt to increase the flush water pressure as it enters the bowl. Tanks near the ceiling are flushed by means of a dangling pull chain, often with a large ornate handle, connected to a flush lever on the cistern itself. "Pulling the chain" remains a British euphemism for flushing the toilet, although this type of tank or cistern is becoming rare. A similar German expression exists: "Wasser ziehen" (to pull water).
In tanks using a flapper-flush-valve, the outlet at the bottom of the tank is covered by a buoyant plastic cover or flapper, which is held in place against a fitting (the flush valve seat) by water pressure. To flush the toilet, the user pushes a lever, which lifts the flush valve from the valve seat. The valve then floats clear of the seat, allowing the tank to empty quickly into the bowl. As the water level drops, the floating flush valve descends back to the bottom of the tank and covers the outlet pipe again. This system is common in homes in the USA and in continental Europe. Recently this flush system has also become available in the UK due to a change in regulations.

[edit] Tank style with siphon-flush-valve

This system, invented by Albert Giblin and common in the UK, uses a storage tank similar to that used in the flapper-flush-valve system above. This flush valve system is sometimes referred to as a valveless system, since no traditional type of valve is required. Some would argue, however, that any system of regulating the flow of a fluid is still technically a valve. In the siphon-flush-valve system, the user pushes a lever or button, forcing the water up into the tank siphon passageway which then empties the water in the tank into the bowl. The advantage of a siphon over the flush valve is that is has no sealing washers that can wear out and cause leaks, so it is favoured in places where there is a need to conserve water. Until recently, the use of siphon-type cisterns was mandatory in the UK to avoid the potential waste of water by millions of leaking toilets with flapper valves but due to EU harmonisation the regulations have changed. These valves can sometimes be more difficult to operate than a "flapper"-based flush valve because the lever requires more torque than a flapper-flush-valve system. This additional torque required at the tank lever is due to the fact that a user must forcefully lift a certain amount of water up into the siphon passageway in order to initiate the siphon action in the tank.
Older installations, known as "high suite combinations", used a high-level cistern (tank), fitted above head height, that was operated by pulling a chain hanging down from a lever attached to the cistern. When more modern close-coupled cistern and bowl combinations were first introduced, these were first referred to as "low suite combinations". Modern versions have a neater-looking low-level cistern with a lever that the user can reach directly, or a close-coupled cistern that is even lower down and integrated with the bowl. In recent decades the close coupled tank/bowl combination has become the most popular residential system, as it has been found by ceramic engineers that improved waterway design is a more effective way to enhance the bowl's flushing action than high tank mounting.

[edit] Tank style with high-pressure or pressure-assist valve

This system utilizes mains water pressure to pre-pressurize a plastic tank located inside of what otherwise appears to be the more typical ceramic flush tank. A flush cycle begins each time a user flushes the bowl. After a user flushes and the water in the pre-pressurized tank has finished emptying into the bowl, the outlet valve in the plastic tank shuts. Then the high pressure water from the city main refills the plastic tank. Inside the tank is an air-filled balloon-like rubber diaphragm. As the higher-pressure mains water enters the tank, the rubber diaphragm is also pressurized and shrinks accordingly. During flushing, the compressed air inside of the diaphragm pushes the water into the bowl at a flow rate which is significantly higher than a tank style gravity-flow toilet. This system requires slightly less water than a gravity-flow toilet. Pressure-assist toilets are sometimes found in both private (single, multiple and lodging) bathrooms as well as light commercial installations (such as offices). They seldom clog, but the pressurized tanks require replacement about once every 10 years. They also tend to be noisier - a concern for residential settings. The inner bowl stays cleaner (in appearance) than gravity counterparts because of the larger water surface area and the toilet's forceful flush. Newer toilets from several companies such as Koehler that are pressure-assisted use 1.4-1.1 gallons per flush

[edit] Tankless style with high-pressure (flushometer) valve

In 1906, William Sloan first made his "flushometer" style toilet flush valve, incorporating his patented design[12], available to the public. The design proved to be very popular and efficient, and remains so to this day. Flushometer toilet flush valves are still often installed in commercial restrooms, and are frequently used for both toilets and for urinals. Since they have no tank, they have zero recharge time, and can be used immediately by the next user of the toilet. They can be easily identified by their distinctive chrome pipe-work, and by the absence of a toilet tank or cistern, wherever they are employed.
Some flushometer models require the user to either depress a lever or press a button, which in turn opens a flush valve allowing mains-pressure water to flow directly into the toilet bowl or urinal. Other flushometer models are electronically triggered, using an infrared sensor to initiate the flushing process. Typically, on electronically triggered models, an override button is provided in case the user wishes to manually trigger flushing earlier. Some electronically triggered models also incorporate a true mechanical manual override which can be used in the event of the failure of the electronic system. In retrofit installations, a self-contained battery-powered or hard-wired unit can be added to an existing manual flushometer to flush automatically when a user departs.
Once a flushometer valve has been flushed, and after a preset interval, inside the flushometer valve a pneumatic mechanism closes the valve. The flushometer system requires no storage tank, but requires a high volume of water in a very short time. Thus a 3/4 inch (19 mm) pipe at minimum, or preferably a 1 inch (25 mm) pipe, must be used, but as the high volume is used only for a short duration, very little water is used for the amount of flushing efficacy delivered. Water main pressures must be above 30 psi. While the higher water pressure employed by a flushometer valve does scour the bowl more efficiently than a gravity-driven system, and while fewer blockages typically occur as a result of this higher water pressure, flushometer systems still require approximately the same amount of water as a gravity system to operate (1.6 gpf).

As with many inventions, the flush toilet was the result of a long development. Therefore, instead of a single name and date, there follows a list of significant contributions to the history of the device.
  • circa 31st century BC: Britain's oldest neolithic village, Skara Brae, Orkney utilised a sophisticated water flushing toilet by use of neolithic hydrolic technology.[2] A river and connecting drainage system was incorporated into the village's design to wash waste away.[3]
  • circa 26th century BC: Flush toilets were first used in the Indus Valley Civilization. The cities of Harappa and Mohenjo-daro had a flush toilet in almost every house, attached to a sophisticated sewage system. [4]
  • circa 18th century BC: Flush toilet constructed at Knossos on Minoan Crete[5]
  • circa 15th century BC: Flush toilets used in the Minoan city of Akrotiri.[citation needed]
  • 9th century BC: Flush toilets on Bahrain Island.[6]
  • 1st to 5th centuries AD: Flush toilets were used throughout the Roman Empire. Some examples include those at Vindolanda on Hadrian's Wall in Britain. With the fall of the Roman Empire, the technology was lost in the West.[citation needed]
  • 1206: The Arab inventor, Al-Jazari, invented a hand washing device incorporating the flush mechanism now used in modern flush toilets. His device features an automaton by a basin filled with water. When the user pulls the lever, the water drains and the automaton refills the basin.[7]
  • 1596: Sir John Harington published A New Discourse of a Stale Subject, Called the Metamorphosis of Ajax, describing a forerunner to the modern flush toilet installed at his house at Kelston[8]. The design had a flush valve to let water out of the tank, and a wash-down design to empty the bowl. He installed one for his godmother Elizabeth I of England at Richmond Palace, although she refused to use it because it made too much noise.[citation needed] The Ajax was not taken up on a wide scale in England, but was adopted in France under the name Angrez.
  • 1738: A valve-type flush toilet was invented by J. F. Brondel.
  • 1775: Alexander Cummings invented the S-trap (British patent no. 814?), still in use today, which uses standing water to seal the outlet of the bowl, preventing the escape of foul air from the sewer. His design had a sliding valve in the bowl outlet above the trap.
  • 1777: Samuel Prosser invented and patented the 'plunger closet'.
  • 1778: Joseph Bramah invented a hinged valve or 'crank valve' that sealed the bottom of the bowl, and a float valve system for the flush tank. His design was used mainly on boats.
  • 1819: Albert Giblin received British patent 4990 for the "Silent Valveless Water Waste Preventer", a siphon discharge system.
  • 1852: J. G. Jennings invented a wash-out design with a shallow pan emptying into an S-trap.
  • 1857: The first American patent for a toilet, the 'plunger closet', was granted.
  • 1858: The first flush toilets on the European continent may have been the three "waterclosets" installed in the new town house of banker Nicolay August Andresen on 6 Kirkegaten in Christiania, insured in January 1859. The toilets were probably imported from England, as they were referred to by the English term "waterclosets" in the insurance ledger.
  • 1860: Another early watercloset on the European continent was also imported from England. It was installed in the rooms of Queen Victoria in castle Ehrenburg (Coburg, Germany); she was the only one who was allowed to use it.
  • The first popularized water closets were exhibited at The Crystal Palace and these became the first public toilets. They had attendants dressed in white and customers were charged a penny for use. This is the origin of the phrase "To spend a penny".
  • 1880s: Thomas Crapper's plumbing company built flush toilets of Giblin's design. After the company received a royal warrant, Crapper's name became synonymous with flush toilets. Although not the original inventor, Crapper popularized the siphon system for emptying the tank, replacing the earlier floating valve system which was prone to leaks. Some of Crapper's designs were made by Thomas Twyford. The similarity between Crapper's name and the much older word crap is a coincidence.
  • 1885: The first modern pedestal 'flush-down' toilet was demonstrated by Frederick Humpherson of the Beaufort Works, Chelsea, England.[9]
  • 1885: Thomas Twyford built the first one-piece ceramic toilet using the flush-out siphon design by J. G. Jennings.
  • 1906: William Elvis Sloan invented the Flushometer, which used pressurized water directly from the supply line for faster recycle time between flushes. The Flushometer is still in use today in public restrooms worldwide.
  • 1907: Thomas MacAvity Stewart of Saint John, New Brunswick patented the vortex-flushing toilet bowl, which creates a self cleansing effect.[10]
  • 1980: Bruce Thompson, working for Caroma in Australia, developed the Duoset cistern with two buttons and two flush volumes as a water-saving measure. Modern versions of the Duoset are now available worldwide, and save the average household 67% of their normal water usage.[11]

A flush toilet is a //toilet// that disposes of human waste by using water to flush it through a drainpipe to another location. Flushing mechanisms are found more often on western toilets (used in the sitting position), but many //squat toilets// also are made for automated flushing. [1] Modern toilets incorporate an 'S','U', 'J', or 'P' shaped bend that causes the water in the toilet bowl to collect and act as a seal against sewer gases. Since flush toilets are typically not designed to handle waste on site, their drain pipes must be connected to waste conveyance and //waste treatment// systems.

{Toilet Problem Sums}

  1. Mr Tan is the owner of a shopping mall. He wanted to decorate all the restrooms in the mall. The cost of decorating
the male toilet is 2/4 of the female toilet. The cost of decorating the male toilet is $115.90. How much must Mr Tan
for decorating all the toilets in the mall?

2u= $115.95
1u= $115.90/2
= $57.95
6u= $57.95 x 6
= $347.70
Mr Tan must pay $347.70 for decorating all the toilets in the mall.

Toilets Songs (The iPod)

In order to get the iPod out from under that building, crews simultaneously flushed as many toilets as they could and they turned on every sink. That caused a water surge which pushed the iPod into a larger more accessible pipe.

Next, a water company was hired to blast water into the pipe in yet another attempt to get the iPod out of the pipe. That effort worked, but at the same time, the blast of water along with a build-up of air caused geysers to burst from the second floor toilets.

Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak, the Founder of Sulabh International Social Service Organization, a pioneering non-profit voluntary organization (NGO) in the field of Sanitation in India, envisioned the need for the setting up of a museum of toilets in the sprawling campus of his central office at Mahavir Enclave, Palam Dabri Road in New Delhi, India and has consultative status with Economic and Social Council of the U.N.The idea engaged his mind for long, eventually leading him to make hectic worldwide search for minutest details of the evolution of toilets, as also of various toilet designs used in different countries at different points of time.

The Toilet Paper Museum

Antique Toilet Paper
Antique Toilet Paper
The Toilet Paper Museum was established a long time ago in a reality far far away, fulfilling the founder's lifelong dream of creating a tribute to this lowly and often overlooked substance which forms a major part of the foundation of our civilization. It grew steadily until it rivalled the Smithsonian Institution in size, but tragically suffered a major setback during the Great Toilet Paper Shortage of 1973 when it was pillaged by an armed band of desperate dysentery-ridden tourists. The majority of specimens, including some quite valuable and irreplaceable ones, were lost, and the physical facilities damaged beyond repair. The job of rebuilding has been slow and painful, but thanks to the donations of our devoted patrons and the tireless and unrelenting efforts of our enormously dedicated volunteer staff, the museum is gradually reattaining a vestige of its former glory as a widely renowned repository of rectal rolls.

The Paris Sewer Museum

Sewer Cover Art
Sewer Cover Art

On a flight to Paris I read in the Air France Magazine about an art exhibition organized by the Sewer Museum of Paris (Les egouts au musee) titled "Sewers and Colors" which I added to my "must see" list. The exhibition ran through 16 Sep 1998 and included prints in relief created from nearly 100 manhole covers from major cities all over the world. The American artist, Ralph G. Brancaccio, first colored the manhole covers with various colors of paint, then laid a sheet of paper over the manhole cover and rolled the back to imprint the design on the paper. "I want to show people the beauty at their feet," says the artist.
The entrance to the Sewer Museum of Paris is located at the Alma Bridge at the corner of quai d'Orsay and the place de la Resistance. This is on the opposite side of the bridge from the entrance to the tunnel in which Princess Diana was killed. The museum is in the Hugues Aubriot gallery located beneath the quai d'Orsay ... formerly a section of the main sewer that ran from the Concorde to the Alma bridge. Yes! the museum is IN the sewer ... albeit a sanitizied section. The tour begins with an explanation of how fresh water is separated from wastewater and proceeds with explanations of the cleaning apparatus used. We actually walked past a street storm sewer opening from the inside.
Workmen do not need maps to find their way around the sewers; each sewer is marked with street signs. The sewers are a veritable "city beneath the city". While odors were evident during the tour, they were no worse than some odors we experienced above ground during our stay in Paris.

American Sanitary Plumbing Museum

The museum was founded by Worcester plumbing equipment distributor Charles Manoog in 1979. Manoog was getting ready to retire and says he wanted to give something back to the profession. Today, his son Russ Manoog runs the distribution business. Down the street, in a refurbished warehouse, Russ's wife, B.J. Manoog curates the only known plumbing museum in the world. If you'd like to tour the American Sanitary Plumbing Museum in Worcester, Massachusetts and learn all you've never known about the subject, you'll have to wait until fall. The museum is closed for the summer, and re-opens in September. Visiting hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Toilets In Japan

Squat toilet


The traditional Japanese-style (和式, washiki) toilet is a squat toilet—also known as the Asian squat toilets of somewhat similar design are common all over Asia. A squat toilet differs from a Western toilet in both construction and method of employment. A squat toilet essentially looks like a miniature urinal set horizontally into the floor. Most squat toilets in Japan are made of porcelain, although in some cases (as on trains) stainless steel is used instead. All other fixtures, such as the water tank, piping, and flushing mechanism, may be identical to those of a Western toilet. Flushing causes water to push the waste matter from the trough into a collecting reservoir which is then emptied, with the waste carried off into the sewer system. The flush is often operated in the same manner as a Western toilet, though some have pull handles or pedals instead. Many Japanese toilets have two kinds of flush: "small" () and "large" (). The difference is in the amount of water used. The former is for urine (in Japanese, literally "small excretion") and the latter for feces ("large excretion").
Two variations are common: one where the toilet is level with the ground, and the other where it is raised on a platform approximately 30 cm (1 ft). The latter is easier to use for men to urinate while standing, but both types can be used for this purpose. There is also no difference for defecation or squatting urination. The user squats over the hole, as close to the front as possible, as excrement tends to fall onto the rear edge of the in-floor receptacle if the user squats too far back; for this reason many public squat toilets have signs reminding the user to "Please take one step closer."

One advantage of squat toilets is that they are very easy to clean. They are also cheaper to make, they consume less water per flush than Western toilets and, due to the lack of direct contact with the seat, and some people claim that they are more hygienic. However, seat contact is not a real health risk and squat toilets allow splatter on one's own legs and feet.

Basic features

The most basic feature is the integrated bidet, a nozzle the size of a pencil that comes out from underneath the toilet seat and squirts water. It has two settings: one for washing the anus and one for the bidet. The former is called posterior wash, general use, or family cleaning, and the latter is known as feminine cleaning, feminine wash or simply bidet. At no point does the nozzle actually touch the body of the user. The nozzle is also self-cleaning and cleans itself before and after operation. The user can select to wash the anus by pressing the corresponding button on the control panel. Occasionally, two nozzles are used, each dedicated for one area. The control logic is also attached to a pressure switch in the toilet seat, and operates only if there is pressure on the seat, indicating that the seat is occupied.


Most high-tech toilets allow water temperature and water pressure to be adjusted to match the preferences of the user.
Researchers in Japan have found that most users prefer a water temperature slightly above body temperature, with 38 °C considered optimal. The nozzle position can also often be manually adjusted forward or aft.
The washlet can replace toilet paper completely, but many users opt to use both wash and paper in combination—although use of paper may be omitted for cleaning. Some wipe before washing, some wash before wiping, some wash only, and some wipe only—each according to his/her taste. Another frequent feature is a blow drier, often adjustable between 40 °C and 60 °C, used to dry the washed areas.

Advanced features

Other features may include a heated seat, which may be adjustable from 30 °C to 40 °C; an automatic lid equipped with a proximity sensor, which opens and closes based on the location of the user. Other features are automatic flushing, automatic air deodorizing, and a germ-resistant surface. Some models specially designed for the elderly may include armrests and devices that help the user to stand back up after use. Some models, the toilet lid will close automatically a certain time after flushing. The most recent introduction is the ozone deodorant system that can quickly eliminate smells. Also, the latest models store the times when the toilet is used and have a power-saving mode that warms the toilet seat only during times when the toilet is likely to be used based on historic usage patterns. Some toilets also glow in the dark or may even have air conditioning below the rim for hot summer days.

Male and female urinals


Modern Japanese urinal
Urinals in Japan are very similar to the urinals in the rest of the world, and mainly used for public male toilets or male toilets with a large number of users. Female urinals never caught on in Japan, although there were attempts made to popularize the American female urinal by the Japanese toilet manufacturing company Toto between 1951 and 1968. However, those were never very popular, and only a few of them remain, including those underneath the Olympic Stadium from the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, which was added to accommodate people from a wide range of cultures.

American Toilets

Family restrooms

Another recent development in public toilets is the "family restroom". These areas contain multiple stalls designed for maximum privacy and a communal washing area for use by both genders. The family restroom is designed so that a parent with a young child of the opposite gender can take the child into the restroom without the concerns associated with single-gender restrooms. Family restrooms have started appearing in newly-built sports stadiums, amusement parks, shopping malls, and major museums.
Toilets in public transport

An aircraft lavatory in the economy class.

There are usually toilets in **airliners**, regional rail trains, and often in long-distance buses and ferries, but not in **school** buses, **trams**, and other buses. Many newer trains have a waste reservoir, but, in older trains and still in some newer ones, the contents simply fall on the tracks, hence the notice which appears in many train toilets: "Please do not flush while the train is standing at a station".
Lavatories on aircraft consist of a sink, a waste bin, and a toilet. On many newer aircraft the toilet does not flush with water; rather, suction removes the waste into a collection bin below cabin level. This type is generically known as a vacuum lavatory.
Private toilets
Small facilities are limited by their space to the toilet options they can offer; it is more common to find a higher number of choices in a large facility. The same is true for homes; in more affluent households in the USA, where the homes are usually larger, bathrooms are also often more spacious than average, and more numerous. In such homes, bathrooms (especially master bathrooms) are increasingly being designed with a small adjoining room (en suite) exclusively for the toilet, as well as separate washing basins. This makes it easier for couples who share a bathroom to maintain their desired level of privacy and personal space. In Australia, it has long been the case that the toilet is in a separate room from the bathroom.

"High-tech" toilets

This public restroom discourages intravenous drug use by making it difficult to locate blood veins in the blue light.

Advanced technology is being integrated into toilets with more functions, especially in Japan. The biggest maker of these toilets is **Toto**. Such toilets can cost anywhere from US$200 to $5,000. The features are operated by control pads (sometimes with bilingual labels), and even hand-held remote control devices. Some of these features are
  • Automatic-flushing mechanisms, operated by a sensor. Typically these flush a toilet when the user stands up, or flush a urinal when the user steps away.
  • Water jets, or "bottom washers" like a **bidet**, as an alternative to toilet paper
  • The "Portable Wash let", Toto's portable hand-held bottom washer
  • Urine and stool analysis, for medical monitoring. Matsushita's "Smart Toilet" checks blood pressure, temperature, and blood sugar.
  • Digital clock, to monitor time spent at the toilet
  • Automated paper toilet-seat-cover re placers, which automatically replace a paper toilet-seat cover with the push of a button.
  • Electric Toilet Brushes
  • Invented in Australia in 1980, and available in more than thirty countries, are dual flush toilets, also known as duosets. Two buttons allow for the user to select between a flush for urine or feces. Because the density of urine is nearly equal to that of the water around it, it requires far less water to flush into a home's sewage system.

"Lo-tech" toilets

According to The Global Water Supply and Sanitation Assessment 2000 by the World Health Organization, 40% of the global population does not have access to excreta disposal facilities, mostly in Asia and Africa. There are efforts to design toilets that are easy to build and maintain with simple materials that are also hygienic.

Toilets on fire-resistance rated floors

Toilet flange **fire** stopping versus mechanical **pipe** fire stopping.

Toilets in multi-storey **buildings**, located on **fire-resistance rated** floors typically require at least two **through-penetrations**, which can compromise the rating of the floor if left untreated. One opening is for the fresh water supply to flush and/or fill the water tank. The other through-penetration is for the drain pipe. The fresh water supply line requires routine fire stopping. The drain pipe, however, is exempt from fires topping in many **building codes**, particularly when non-combustible **piping** is used, because the penetration terminates on the unexposed side in a **ceramic** bowl filled with water, which can withstand significant fires. **Intumescent** fire stops are often used, in the event **plastic** pipes are used for toilet drains, so that the melting plastic pipe is choked off in the event of an accidental fire. It is, however, customary to fill the metallic drain pipe **annulus** with **Rockwool** **packing**. Even with the best of intentions, it would be difficult for the fire stopper to install a **sealant**, because he is not allowed or inclined to remove the flange, which is what is partially used to support the drain pipe below during the installation process.

Public Toilets

Public toilets, public lavatories, or public conveniences are toilets that are accessible to the general public with common access from the street. Conveniences being the collective term for male and female designated toilets, convenience (**singular**) usually acquiring a gender attribute.
A public toilet may or may not cost money to use; for those that do, see "**pay toilet**". Between the categories of outright free and outright pay toilets, there is a Grey area of toilets where a fee is expected, but not enforced. A charge levied in the UK during the mid-20th century was one **British** penny, hence the generally adopted term "spend a penny" meaning to use the toilet.
Public facilities often have several toilets partitioned by stalls (US) or cubicles (UK). Facilities for men often also have separate urinals, either wall-mounted fixtures designed for a single user, or a constantly-draining basin or trough for collective use.

Wall-mounted urinals are sometimes separated by small partitions or other obstructions for **privacy**, i.e., to keep the user's genitals hidden from public view.
Some facilities are mobile, and can thus be put in place where and when needed, e.g., for a weekend at an entertainment venue. Additionally, some can be sunk into the ground, for the periods that they are not needed. The idea behind this is that some people do not like the sight of a public toilet in the street, and they are more easily hidden than repeatedly moved. This type is typically installed in entertainment areas and made operational during weekend evenings and nights.
A **portable toilet** is an outdoor public toilet with walls which can either be connected to the local **sewage system** or store the waste and be emptied from time to time. Many toilets can be cleaned on the spot, or at a central location in the case of a mobile toilet or urinal. In Europe, public toilets are also set up for cities as a compensation for advertising permits. They are part of a **street furniture** contract between the out-of-home advertising company and the city council. The reason for this combination is the shortage in city budgets.
Terms used to identify a public toilet will vary from region to region. The Gents and The Ladies are commonly used **British** terms meaning the male and female toilet respectively. Some **European** public toilets may be marked **"WC" (Water Closet)**; while in the **Philippines** the label "CR" (comfort room) is common.
Some public toilets have begun to be provided with flush able paper **toilet seat covers** which allow the user the comfort of knowing that they are not in contact with a surface previously used by a stranger. There is however no medical evidence that these prevent the spread of disease.

Toilets for people with disabilities

Some toilet areas (otherwise known as "stalls"), are specially adapted for people with **disabilities**. These are wide enough to allow the entry and use by a person in a **wheelchair**, and often feature hand-holds or **grab bars** bolted to the wall, enabling the person to maneuver onto the toilet, if necessary. Some countries have legal requirements for the accessibility of toilets.

A toilet is a plumbing fixture and disposal system primarily intended for the disposal of the bodily wastes: urine and fecal matter. Additionally, vomit and menstrual waste are sometimes disposed of in toilets in Western societies. The word toilet describes the fixture and, especially in British English, the room containing the fixture. In American English, the latter is euphemistically called a restroom or bathroom. The latter term often describes a room that also contains a bath tub. A room with only a toilet
and a sink is sometimes called a half-bathroom, a half bath, and a powder room.
There are two basic types of modern toilets: the dry toilet and the wet toilet, the latter being the most commonly known and producer of blackwater. The dry toilet needs no plumbing for water input or evacuation, but is often coupled with some ventilation system.
Prior to the introduction of modern flush toilets, most human waste disposal took place outdoors in outhouses and latrines. However, the ancient cities of the Indus Valley Civilization, e.g., Harappa[1] and Mohenjo-daro[2] which are located in present day India and Pakistan had flush toilets attached to a sophisticated sewage system[3]—and other forms of toilets were used both in the time of the Romans and Egyptians as well.[4] Although a precursor to the modern flush toilet system was designed in 1596 by John Harington,[5] the toilet did not enter into widespread use until the late nineteenth century, when it was adopted in English upper class residences.[6]Imagine it!
This is a toilet sign around the world.
