There's also an issue with the water level; it's lower (from the seat) than in the "normal" toilets. This is very noticeable for some of us, particularly when half awake, sitting down in the middle of the night.
Plopping isn't the only problem, but as you probably know, the water can splash up higher than the poop plopped down. I haven't done any extreme high-altitude plopping to see if there is a limit, but that's certainly true for every toilet I've ever sat on. I've never experienced it in a porta-potty (thank Zeus), though, so there may be a limit.I don't understand. I figure if one "plops" that the increased distance will minimize any upward water splash. You want to know what drove me crazy? When the lid was down or when the seat was up. I'd forget to put the seat down and I'd feel as if I were falling when I went to sit while half awake. Or the wife would put the lid down and when I went to sit I'd feel the cold of the lid. Like many guys I would leave the seat up. It drove the wife crazy. Ah, marriage...
We never resort to Silcone for any part on the tank or tank to bowl. We install hundreds and hundreds with "clean" parts.

Well, at least the stuff I bought. I hpe that it doesn't attack rubber like Vaseline does. And if it does I'll just pick up a 4811BP kit for under $10.
This is awkward, but...
