  • Don't know what to title this thread, Just read it!!

    Okay I have a customer who is soon to be 80.
    Called to say he needed a taller WC in master bath.
    We replaced his one piece low boy WC with Gerber Avalache Right Ht.

    He calls a week later to say he is not happy with his new WC, says " just telling you man to man...... I am almost 80 and my balls hang low, and when I sit down they are in the water....."

    I stayed composed and didn't bust out laughing, but assured him we would find a toilet to meet his "needs".

    Just started to look into this today and Gerber specs say that rim to water surface is 5 1/4".....something we all have to look forward too!

    anyway I am looking into options for his rough in specs

    What's wrong with a little water on the nuggets?

    Not sure about the toilet though, never had anyone complain that their nuggets dove into the pool before.

        Try a different brand of toilet seat, not plastic. A wood seat has a thicker bumper. If that doesn't work try a 1 or 2" lift seat.

        And yes I have heard about it before, more than once.

            believe it or not i had the same phone call about 25 years ago, when i was doing new construction.

            the owner wife called in to the shop that the toilet seat needed adjusting.

            i figured i'll call her back before i drive out to the building to adjust a toilet seat.

            come to find out that her husband had the same issue

            told her to buy a handicap toilet seat

            saved me a trip and some embarrassment trying to adjust it and test it.

              I agree a new seat is the way to go. Great toilet by the way, I have the regular Avalanche in my house. I guess I'm not so lucky with the ball thing, but I am Irish!

                    There are two potential solutions for your customer that don't involve a different toilet or a new seat. He can knot his nut sack or he can lighten the load. (by er... well... you know.)

                      I have a similar problem while trying to pee off of a local bridge.

                        Guys, after a totally crap day I sit down at nearly 9.20pm at night and laugh my socks off. Got my vote for thread of the week. Good to have a laugh but also having respect for the gentleman who probably has quite a complex about his situation.

                            Wack a Sack?

                            Ballectomy?

                            Whew. Glad to have that out of my system. I actually feel badly for the poor guy. Imagine his anxiety and what he's exposed to if he has to take a dump in a public toilet. Maybe he carries a little drawstring pouch so he can hoist up the family jewels. A nutsack?
