I've never understood why people tolerate huge, hard poops.

I was impressed with the Glacier Bay 1-Piece 1.1 GPF/1.6 GPF High Efficiency Dual Flush Elongated All-in-One Toilet. It has a very powerful flush, is quick filling, and is quiet. A kit for under $170 (elongated seat with lid, chrome-plated trip levers, wax seal and all hardware necessary for installation)!

Sorry, no monsters live here!
However, I had to find out how many wads (handfulls) of tissue it would take before I had to plunge. In the factories, I believe they test them with eggs.

I forget the exact number of wads, but it was a lot. Previous ****ers would have clogged with about 1/3 of the amount!

Re: What toilet can handle big dumps?


Hmm.

Interesting thread, hope it stays strictly theoretical and academic, in my case at least.

I recall a near-neighbor whose grandma had to take opiates for a long time and she had a real Rocky Horror show with her stools, had to use a coat hanger to get them down sometimes. That was back in the 1980s. Hope they've got better ways of dealing with that now.

You run the risk of peritonitis that way by poking the bowel. That's what suppositories & enemas are for. If I start listing remedies, I'd send the thread to CBR.

The American Standard should have tested fire logs.

I think DoomsDave means she had to poke the turds down the toilet with a coat hanger. I could be wrong.

YIKE!

I realize now that my wording was a bit clumsy.

I meant using a coat hanger to get them to go down the toilet.

They used massages, and softeners before she passed them.

Whew!

Yes, @Mystriss and @huesmann are correct.
