        a good portion of the air will be going up the rim wash and back into the overflow tube. it also stands a good chance of lifting the flapper off the flush valve and causing the toilet to flush

        of course they don't show that in the video.

          Lets not forget the confusion with round front or elongated
          That could be a leg washer

              Rick, See it works like this... You push down reeeeeealy hard and fast and get the clog loose, while the bellows simultaneously caused the toilet to flush to clean away and residual poop or TP. It's a bonus design feature.

              Engineers call that ELEGANT design.

              I call it a mess if that clog doesn't unclog.

              Seriously, what bothers me about the design is that the air from the bowl with e coli bacteria and whatever else it contains is forcefully blown into the tank where it contaminates potable water. I realize the likelyhood of that water ending up being ingested or used somewhere else is highly unlikely. Nevertheless, I dislike the premise. There are other ways to clear the bowl without contaminating potable water.
