Help! I have a bathroom with a round low toilet. Mostly men use it and it STINKS from splashing. I've heard there are toilets that are designed to be more "man friendly" but don't know which ones. I don't have room for a urnal or I'd put one in. Can anyone advise please?

Only a urinal would be somewhat more man friendly. You can clean and use a bio cleaner that will kill the odor causing problem.

I'd prefer elongated bowl toilets...gives a little more room to maneuver. Pretty much everyone makes them. Keep in mind, not all toilets are created equal...do some research if you want to replace it or you may be disappointed with the performance.

There are some alternatives that might help.

1. Tell the men that they are hereafter responsible for cleaning that bathroom and keeping it smelling sweet. Furthermore, they are prohibited from using any other bathroom in the house.

2. Tell them to use the lavatory sink or the bathtub or the shower. They are all bigger targets and the sink is a shorter range shot.

Elongated bowl will likely solve a lot your problems. Start there.

If we're talking about mis-aiming when standing, the elongated front of the bowl won't help, seems to me.

Might be more productive to find something, like the Toto Aquia, which has a deep bowl and small water spot -- lots of bare porcelain at the back of the bowl to aim at.

Oh yes it will... I just replaced 2 round with 2 elongated. TOTO & Kohler. More area and length of bowl. Big difference.

You were reading my mind. We surely agree on that. Good point-and an advantage about Aquia no one has mentioned before.

I'm thinking something ADA would be good too because of the elongated bowl and the extra height.

If they are getting too messy, it's time for them to sit down, and do their own cleaning.

Thanks to all. Like the sit down suggestion best but I doubt they will do that. I will try the enlogated bowl ADA height.
