Flusher’s Delight

Flusher’s Creed

Originally uploaded by tbridge.

The Nationals new stadium cleared an important hurdle today, successfully flushing all of the toilets in the new stadium from top to bottom. Each commode was given a number of flushes on 10-15 second intervals to simulate the 7th inning stretch. More pictures to come and a report on the ballpark tour!

    I was wondering why they didn’t just use the autoflush IR units rather than the troublesome handle versions… plus, according to what you told me, instead of the multiple folks per restroom required, you could just have one person run really fast in front of them to flush them all…

    No IR option on the toilets! They’re all old-fashioned.

    it was a cost thing.

    to get the stadium done on time, they needed to get the traditional flush toilets.

    i’m willing to bet that they’ll be upgrading to IR toilets in the next few years.

    although… you always get these pranksters that stick a wad of gum on top of the sensor, and that ain’t no fun a-tall!

    The BIG FLUSHâ„¢

    Lmao… I’m sure the surrounding neighborhoods all lose their water pressure during the 7th!

    It makes me uneasy to have "poo poo" commenting on a story about urinals…
