    Default Space Station

    Did you hear a toilet in the space station broke down.

    I wonder if Kohler or American Standard is going to get a service call?

    See now if they installed a Drake....

    Plumbing the Space Station

    Nothing goes to waste on the International Space Station where nearly everything is recycled. What makes this ecologist's dream world work? Some of the fanciest plumbing in the solar system!

    Somehow I think the ISS is the only place where a Toto Drake would not be a good toilet...

    I think their problem is the septic system is too small for all the house guests they have over.

    There are 13 people on the space station right now a record. The crew represents the United States, Russia, Canada, Japan, and Europe. NASA has spent years getting ready for a crowd in space adding additional sleeping quarters, learning how to recycle liquid waste into drinking water, and installing a second bathroom last year.
    I guess having Mexican food for dinner was a mistake.

    I always recommend the Space Cadet 3 as a good value, high quality and reliable toilet for inter-galactic installations.

    Toto do a "space toilet" too, but as you might expect the design is not quite what the discerning home owner on the East Coast has in mind.
