    Unless the regs have changed, these are illegal in the UK.

    I remember being at a restaurant in Chartres in 1994. The Gents was a cubicle with just a squat pan behind a lightly frosted glass door with the Ladies beyond it and the kitchen opposite. It didn't encourage an Englishman to go!

    Good god almighty.
    I was in Paris last August and a couple of the restaurants had them in the gents loos. I didn't know what to do for the best.
    Disgusting....no wonder Paris stinks!!

    I came back happily engaged though.....matrimonily speaking....not ablution-wise. :LOL:

    Wow squat flush and run I think you will find that they are allowed but the regs are tight on them to prevent back flow the least you need is double check valves on hot and cold wouldnt fancy putting one in I think you need a spray to wash you're rear end don't you? :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

    It's not replace my regular bog its to create place in out house for a dump. I have used these toilets countless times in Asia and didn't have any problems!
    It's so I can still park my mountain bike in shed whilst adding a hole to plop in, good idea I thought! :)
    Ps. I don't need a seat because I really get constipated so don't squat for hours...lol
