    That's @fullylucky's place....I'd know those tiles anywhere.

    It's a bit of a worry as you can still raise the toilet seat and POQ. [​IMG]

    I have two questions:
    • Why is it only a dollar and not two?
    • Why doesn't it accept pay pass?

    There's no flush button - I must have too much time on my hands.

    PS that's an electronic coin collector for a commercial washing machine. No cabling or surface mounted cabling - hoax?

    After how much I ate last night for NYE, they would need to accept $50 notes if they put one at my place...

    It's wifi connected. After doing a crap you get on the app.

    Removing the coin slot might wipe away the LLs profit.

    Yep. Easy and doesn't cost that much to provide... People ask for this along with does my place have hairdryers and irons?

    From personal experience I can advise that it is very easy to flush a toilet with a bucket of water
