No, no, and not really anymore than a bathroom sink is redundant to
the kitchen sink.
There was a great little urinal that never caught on and I have _no_
idea why. It was a tiny little clamshell urinal the size of an
external USB hard disk drive. Recessed in the wall, the lid folded
down to provide the pee chute. It flushed with a few ounces of water
when the door was closed. Needed a water supply and something like a
3/4" waste line. And these idjits are proud of their low-flow 1.6
The manufacturer really messed up the marketing and it's nowhere to be

flushing yet) and it uses ten ounces of water. If they used a smaller
waste line they could cut the water consumption in half.
I like the detail on the webpage: Latex paint surround hehe
...and what about guys with big noses? They're expecting users to stand with
their noses less than a foot from a wall, or in Don's case, a foot and a

Soaker tub or shower cabinet?
Hot tub or sauna?
