A Toilet That Does Not Overflow
No More Overflowing Toilets
We all have experienced the aggravation and embarrassment of an over flowing bathroom toilet. It always seems to happen at the worst of times such as about the time that you need to leave the house for an appointment or when you have company that is just sitting down to dinner. This has to be one of the greatest advancement in plumbing technology in decades. If it isn't I don't know what is.
Who would ever suspected that one of the children would be in the bathroom experimenting with the toilet until it overflowed. What a mess of waste water that you now have to clean up. Well, we have good news! You can avoid the situation by installing a toilet that does not overflow. Yep, there is such a thing as none overflowing toilet. It is called the Penguin Toilet.
The Penguin Toilet has two forms of overflow protection;
1. There are three holes at the back of the bowl that allow the waste water to drain through a separate channel if the main drain clogs.
2. If those drain holes plug the rising water enters holes under the rim which permits the waste water to escape through another drain outlet.
The Penguin Toilet can be installed in new construction or as a replacement toilet. Installing the toilet is an easy DIY project that can be completed in less than an hour. There is no need for additional plumbing as it attaches to the existing plumbing fixtures.
To replace a toilet with a Penguin Toilet simply disconnect the water line to the existing toilet, remove the two hold down nuts and then remove the old toilet. Install a new wax ring and install the new toilet. That is all there is to it.
The cost of a Penguin Toilet is just about the same as any other toilet and can be purchased at any plumbing supply store. It comes with a standard five year warrantee.
