I've heard about toilet seats breaking apart regularly from obese persons, but what about the porcelein toilet bowl itself? How come none of the manufacturers list a weight limit for them?
By the way, I recently was told of a very large heavy man who lived in a trailer house, getting in bed, and having all the bed legs go thru the particle board floor, and also stepping thru the same floor in other parts of the trailer. Then he also had one leg of a kitchen chair go thru that floor. There again, no one seems to list the weight limits. Regarding this individual, a friend who does construction was asked to repair this floor. The owner refused to spend the money to buy 3/4" plywood to cover the entire trailer floor, and only wanted to patch the broken spots. It was reported that he added at least one more broken spot weekly. The construction guy refused the job, saying he would not be responsible when the obese man went thru another spot.
