Has anyone thought about putting one of these on their bus?

I found these randomly on the internet quite some time ago, but just recently remembered about them and figured it could be an awesome idea for a bus, where space and water come at a premium.



now, I would imagine that it would only be good for hand washing after doing the deed. I wouldn't want toothpaste clogging up the lines in the toilet. I figure all other sink needs can be taken care of at the kitchen sink. This would open up so much needed space in the bus and would help save water. I just wanted to hear yalls thoughts on the subject.

Very interesting, but I'm not aware of any RV type of commodes that have a water reservoir....

Is that a combo drinking fountain/toilet?

Re: Has anyone thought about putting one of these on their bus?

That is just too cool. There has been lots of discussion about the pros and cons of a system that recycles the gray water back for flushing the brown stuff to the blackwater tank. It seems like the biggest thing hindering the idea was the plumbing nightmare. This would greatly simplify things. I'm not sure if that thing is gravity fed or pump fed thuogh. You might need pump feed for the flushing water. In that way it wouldn't be so much like a toilet storage tank with gravity flushing as it would be a sink mounted above the toilet with a gray water tank and pump sandwiched in the middle.

It's an interesting concept to say the least.
