Terminal Velocity Toilet

Anti Splash back toilet

Tired of Splash Back? Try the TVT. This eliminates this annoying problem with an extra deep bowl.

When produced, a fece will accelerate from near rest under gravity. The impact of the motion on the water in the u-bend causes a water plume. The height of this plume is proportional to the impact velocity of the stool.

By positioning the waters surface sufficiently below the seat the excrement will have reached its terminal velocity and will create a plume of maximum height. All splash back events can be eliminated by further increasing the depth of the bowl. This extra depth will account for any variance in air resistance of deposits.

       ...and thus the outhouse is born.   

       Eating two large pizzas each day will enable you to produce more cohesive stools, which means they contact the water surface prior to release. Search google for 'Cable Laying'. Problem solved.

       'cuttin turf' in Ireland. Well in the more in-bred areas anyway.

       Raise the water to a non-splash level in the toilet using a sensor in the bowl to check cheek distance.

       Argh, no. Unflushed toilet contents being raised until they almost touch your nearest and dearest? <shudders>
