Meet Poo and Pee. Metro Vancouver Introduces Mascots

The regional government of Canada's third-largest metropolitan area has launched a video campaign introducing mascots Poo and Pee to drive home a message about improper flushing.The costumed mascots are part of Metro Vancouver's annual Unflushables campaign to remind people about items that should not be flushed because they can clog city sewers and your pipes.Problem items that can lead to trouble with municipal and residential pipes when flushed include dental floss, hair, paper towels, tampons and applicators, as well ascondoms, according to the regional government.Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart, the chair of the region's utilities commission, was present April 1 for an event with the mascots at Waterfront station in Vancouver.Video of the event was posted this week.Poo and Pee starring in: we're all you can flush"Our sewage system doesn't get enough respect," said Stewart as mascot Pee danced behind him."We want people only to flush the pee and the poo, because there's a whole bunch of stuff that gets flushed down the toilet that doesn't belong there."'He is absolutely freaking horrifying': Meet Gritty, the mascot Philadelphia didn't know it neededThe 2019 campaign is reminding people that many products labelled "flushable" actually leave unfortunate, long-lasting deposits in the local sewer system.Metro Vancouver cited research by Ryerson University that found only 11 of 101 tested "flushable" products actually met international flushable specifications. And those products were all toilet paper.So long, Frozen John: a moose with attitude is coming for the job of Fort St. John's official mascotA spokesperson for Metro Vancouver said the costumescost less than $10,000 to make. The cost of improper items being flushed, he added, adds up to $250 million across Canada.This is not the first time dress-up droppings have been used in a campaign for sewage awareness.Flush with sewage success, Victoria icon Mr. Floatie retiresIn Victoria, Mr. Floatie was an ignominious icon protesting the Capital Regional District's decades-long practice of dumping raw sewage into its surrounding waters.James Skwarok, who invented and hadportrayed Mr. Floatiesince 2004 retired his alter-ego in 2017 onceconstruction was underway on the region's new sewage treatment plant.

How to Choose a Toilet Seat
How to Choose a Toilet SeatBath Royale's Premium and Superior models are made of polypropylene, a softer plastic that is lighter and more flexible than other toilet seat materials. It's beautiful, high-gloss finish will last for years with proper care and cleaning, but scratches relatively easily (avoid abrasives and hard sharp objects). Polypropylene is softer and warmer to touch than painted wood or Eurocast . Eurocast - Bath Royale's MasterSuite seats are made of Eurocast , a high-tech polymer plastic that is extremely durable and scratch resistant. Eurocast is heavier, harder and stiffer than polypropylene. Eurocast is cooler to touch than polypropylene and breathes better against the skin, which may be preferred in warmer, humid climates or for people who spend a lot of time on the toilet. MasterSuite bumpers are rubberized (slip-resistant) and strategically placed for stability. For those who are above average weight and like to sit (and move around) on the closed cover, MasterSuite is the best choice.— — — — — —if men has to put down the toilet seat for women, shouldn't women have to put it up for men?We keep the toilet seat down because both men and women poop sitting down— — — — — —How to quickly warm up a toilet seatThe ultimate solution for this is a electric bidet toilet seat.

Sorry for lame question my account was suspended DATHIP: 1,301 pts and i am very upset— — — — — —I cant get my broken toilet seat off?Been there and had to make two trips to the hardware store to buy two pairs of Vise Grips to solve it. The hardware is usually in an almost impossible place to reach and requires the dexterity of a rhesus monkey in order to get a grip on it. I've had success with this problem using two sets of locking pliers because then you can concentrate on turning the mangled nut and not worry so much about keeping the pliers on them. Go very carefully with any type of saw as a toilet is basically a very large porcelain teacup and quite easy to break. Another solution would be to drill the bolts out from above. Start with a small drill bit and work your way up to a larger one. The bolts are made of polyester or nylon and quite soft, but again, you have to be careful not to damage the porcelain because it is very thin where the seat bolts in. If you are easily frustrated, or it's too late for that, maybe take a break until you can do this when calm because it's very easy to break or crack the toilet if you get overzealous. I do not mind complicated, difficult projects, but when simple ones become something other than easy, like a stuck toilet seat or an oil filter that wo not budge, then it can be extremely frustrating. And if you have someone at your house who offers criticism or even an opinion, it can be even more so. Try two sets of Vise Grips, but do not rule out the monkey.
