Worst Things About Auto-Flushing ToiletsGenerally, auto-flushing toilets are the ideal update for a public restroom. With auto-flushing toilets, nobody has to touch germy handles, walk into a stall with an unflushed toilet, or deal with broken handles. However, there are some drawbacks to auto-flushing toilets.
If you disagree anything listed below, then that is okay with me. I know that there are solutions to those problems (like putting a post-it notes on the sensor or pressing the button if it has one). I am pointing out the disadvantages to automated toilets, but I am not saying there are no solutions. None of these apply to all auto-flushing toilets, but these apply to the vast majority of auto-flushing toilets. Some of these might apply to manual-flushing toilets as well.
I am sorry if you think this list is a terrible list. I try my best to make valid lists regardless of if you believe me or not.
I hate the auto flush toilets, and urinals, 'cause it auto-flushes when I am not done using them yet. They are frustrating, wasteful, and stupid. But the zurn auto flushes are the worst, they like to waste water the most. So water saving toilets will be a better option for you, because they save water, and we need water
Sometimes it flushes mid-use, other times after you just sat down, or before you even get to sit down. It rarely flushes after the users stood up and were finished with their business.
It's funny how many people suggest that keeping your penis away from the sensor solves the problem because I don't have a penis.
Yeah I hate those toilets, I always try to keep my anus and penis and testicles away from the sensor.
In 2010, researchers studied the amount of water used via toilet in an office building. With manual-flushing toilets, the average daily water use in that building was 807 gallons. Once auto-flushing toilets were installed, that water use increased to 1,243 gallons per day. That is an increase of 54%! Researchers convinced that the increase might be because of phantom flushing, or flushing when it's not supposed to.
You'll be lucky if a button was there.
Yeah I know, it hate it when all that dirty water with bacteria goes up my anus, this can even happen to manual toilets too.
Whenever I use an auto-flush toilet, I try not to move if I can so that it does not trigger the sensor and flush while I am sitting on it, which gets my butt wet and the water is usually dirty
That is especially terrible if it flushes mid-use.
When I was a child, I was so scared of them that I thought every toilet was auto-flush even if it was not.
When I was little my all-time fear was automatic toilets.
I am still scared of automatic toilets, 'cause in 2018, I went to Pedia Plex in Southlake, and the sound was so loud, which scared me.
My little friend's teddy bear got flushed down one of those toilets.
Then he cried every time he sat on the toilet. >:(
I don't necessarily like doing it, but some people do.
The darker your urine is, the less hydrated you are.
You need to have a clear pee!
This can apply to manual-flushing toilets as well.
That's already on the list.
Yeah I remember it being loud and I used to be scared of loud toilets
Some people stand up to wipe their bottoms before flushing. Since most automated toilets flush before you're even done, you do not have a chance to stand up before you wipe. I am not a stand-up wiper, but a lot of people are.
I mean most people are not too lazy to flush a toilet.
That would be the worst to lose something in an auto flush toilet
Yeah I hate them too 'cause at church they replaced the handles with the automatic flush for both the toilets and urinals. So when I was finished using the automatic urinal, I flushed it, then it flushed again AFTER I flushed it, waste of water
Yeah I hate them 'cause at church they replaced the the handles with the automatic flush for both the toilets and urinals in early 2022. So when I was done using it, I flushed it, then it flushed again AFTER I flushed it, waste of water
Yeah I hate these too 'cause at church they replaced the handles with the automatic flush in early 2022, so when I manually flushed them, they auto flushed again AFTER I flushed it, waste of water.
They flushed more than once when I used it I standed up and it flushed, and then it flushed again when I was done
