Aquarium Toilets Bring New Life to Your Bathroom – Literally!
May 20, 2013
At bidetsPLUS, we like to consider ourselves to be on top of new bathroom technology – especially when it comes to toilets and toilet-related technology. But we stumbled across something today that even got us by surprise – Aquarium Toilets!
Yes – those are real, living fish you see there. How amazing is that? Just something we thought we’d share to bring a little humor to your day and a smile to your face.
This creative toilet design is manufactured by the California based company, AquaOne. They call it the “Fish ‘n Flush Toilet Tank Aquarium which has a 2.2 gallon aquarium capacity. It replaces your existing toilet tank (not the bowl, just the tank) and can be used with most two-piece toilets. The aquarium can support fresh-water fish only, and the matching toilet seat comes included. With a retail price of about $200, the aquarium is equipped with a complete filtration system and waterproof LED lights for your viewing pleasure.
Naturally, we were interested to see how this toilet works. After all – you do need to still flush the toilet! But what happens to the fish? Well, it turns out that there’s a separate water tank (for flushing) within the aquarium as you can see in the picture to the left. Pretty clever design if you ask us.
AquaOne, which actually specializes in water conservation equipment for homes and residences, worked with a marine biologist to design the tank to ensure the fish are not harmed when flushing the toilet. So it’s totally safe for the fish, and something your kids (or grandkids) will definitely get a kick out of.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you got a giggle out of reading today’s post. Stay tuned to the bidetsPLUS Blog to keep current on the latest in bathroom tech.
