Having trouble toilet training your cat? Perhaps what you need is a picture of goldfish or yarn on the ol' porcelain throne as a little extra incentive. You can now dress up your toilet in a snap, thanks to the innovative new WOW Toilets.
California-based WOW Toilet makes tanks that are clear, "allowing for insertion of specially-sized images, posters, advertisements or marketing messages," according to a press release we received. The tanks come in kits that are supposedly easy to install, including the necessary plumbing parts. What's cool about it is it comes with dual flush valves, like they have in many other countries, but haven't yet caught on in the U.S. Only need a minor flush? It's easy to use less water, which will save you money, and help pay for the toilet upgrade over time.
Is the display slot a gimmick? Sure! But there is something to be said for being able to swap out some decor with the changing seasons and your moods, versus investing in more intensive changes like paint or tile. And we could totally see how some places could make a few dollars renting the space to advertisers. Heck, some bars already place ads in public restrooms, above toilets and urinals. This would just make it easier and save on framing.
Hey, if the WOW Toilet gets more Americans to adopt the efficient dual flush option, we think that's a win for water savings. Plus, what says "Happy Birthday" like a beaming altar of porcelain?
The WOW Toilet Tank Kit also comes in a single-flush option, or the dual flush, both for $89.95. It comes with a poster insert of your choice. Additional poster inserts cost $4.95, or you can pay to print your own. Or you can stick whatever you want in there. That's what I would do.
