Professor Toilet outlines the multiple disciplines of math and science behind better performing, stylish toilets:
Physics, governing water distribution to effectively clean the bowl and prevent clogging.
Mechanical and Materials Engineering, governing the operation and reliability of the valves.
Chemistry, to understand the properties of clay, glazes, plastics and increasingly, antimicrobials.
Biology, to understand and control sanitary properties and slow bacterial growth.
Geometry to guide aesthetic innovations, while statistically analyzing every element of the toilet design to ensure reliable function.
If this all sounds like the syllabus from hell, then you must have been an English major. That’s OK, even Professor Toilet knows we need something to read while using all this advanced technology.
