It's a rocket bidet
I want a bidet so badly. I forget the name of the one I found, I think its a japanese company but I'm not positive. It seems like something that should be in every house, I don't understand why here in the usa its not a thing. I think it might be weird in public facilities, but in private it seems great. Hopefully I can get one in the future. I think it was over $1,000 usd and thats for the lesser models. Thinking of all the tissue paper that could be saved. All the chafe marks, rashes, clogged toilets, no spicy food wipage misery.
Toto is probably the brand you are thinking of. But there are so many others out there. We have the "Go Bidet" which is like the premium bolt-on bidet. Fits almost any toilet. Metal instead of cheap plastic. Looks good. You can find them between $100-$150. It'll clean your whistle. If you have high water pressure you can even get a mini enema going.
Yes! Toto is the brand I'd been thinking of. Thanks so much for the tips, good to know that I can get started for only $100-150. My shower can spray hard enough to inflict pain, but I'm not sure if there is a way to control the pressure on the bidet. I guess the more the cleaner, as long as I don't turn it into an industrial waterjet.
The bidet has a little knob to control flow but if you flip it too far too fast you'll blast your balloon knot open.
You can get a bidet attachment on amazon for like $25 if you want to try it. And yes, you can control the pressure.
Do you ever get poop on it? Like doesn't line of sight become necessary here at some point?
No pooping on it. It flips into place using a hinge and a little handle. You flip it into place when you're done browning. Google it. Hard to explain.
You don't even need a fancy one to start with. Just get one of those toilet add-on versions for $30-$35 USD. They're great and totally worth it!
you can literally buy one for like 25 bucks on amazon. It's just an attachment you put on your toilet.
They cost like $20 on Amazon. If you want a bidet, you should have one. It takes like thirty minutes to install.
Me too just no sure what to do for electricity part
When I saw a picture for one some time ago on amazon, it had to be plugged into an outlet. So its probably best to setup an outlet directly behind the toilet, but that would take a lot more work than I am capable of doing. I would just run the cable to an existing outlet near my bathroom sink, a few feet away. I could run it along the underside of the cabinets or something like that, something simple and fast.
Honestly because they make a mess (no one likes having butthole water splashed all over the place, and it does splash) and using baby wipes is 100% faster and cleaner.
What happens to the baby wipes?
You flush them the same as toilet paper, they are flush and septic safe
They absolutely are not sewer or septic safe.
Oh okay, they just print that on the packaging for no reason. I have septic and it's been 100% fine for years
You're right, they do print it for no reason. Or rather, for the reason of continued profit. Baby wipes/wet wipes are one of the leading causes of "fatbergs" clogging up sewers all over the world.
Except some are and some aren't. It's definitely illegal to make false claims like this that would cause traceable damage. They aren't putting themselves at the risk of lawsuits to lie about something people would do anyway.
"Companies like Cottonelle and Charmin heavily advertise their flushable wipes. They sound so convenient. But plumbers make a lot of house calls that involve clogged toilets, backed up sewer lines, and flooded basements. Often the culprit is flushable wipes.
Consumer Reports checked out four flushable wipes from Cottonelle, Charmin, Scott and Equate. They all say they’re flushable and make claims like “sewer and septic safe” and “breaks up after flushing.”
In Consumer Reports’ standard tests, toilet paper breaks down quickly. But when testers ran the same test with the flushable wipes they didn’t break down at all. Consumer Reports gave up after ten minutes. Testers even ran them for ten minutes in a mixer, the wipes still didn’t break apart."
Google Are flushable wipes flushable?
Except if you actually tested it instead of trying to find articles about something youve never seen you'd know that wipes do actually break down fairly well
Every single product shown is worse than toilet paper.
That's not the argument. No one ever said X is better or worse than toilet paper. The argument is that it is flushable.
Please end this here, neither you nor I will change nor agree. You for some reason enjoy water being sprayed up your butthole and I prefer another, more sanitary, option. The end.
Didn't know they were messy, damn. I keep baby wipes on hand, they say 1 per flush though which kinda sucks. In the meantime, people will have to listen to the toilet flush every minute or so if I use them.
I have one of the cheap $30 bidets off Amazon and they don’t make a mess at all. I’ve had mine for almost a year now and there’s never been any issues with it splashing outside the toilet. And you really shouldn’t be flushing baby wipes down the toilet no matter how few you’re flushing at a time. I’ve heard from tons of people about how even the ones that claim to be flushable and safe will still just get stuck somewhere in the sewer system (or god forbid a septic tank) and cause massive blockages that people then need to go down and remove by hand.
It seems like theres some fuckery when its marketed as 'flushable wipes', and all they have to do is say 'only use 1 per flush'. You are probably right, I've heard similar things in the past about blockages. I think it says that its only supposed to be used in places that have highly-maintained septic systems. Thats what it said on the back of the package. It probably takes a very long time to break apart, where toilet paper will come apart the moment it gets wet. Sucks to learn that I am contributing to a problem by doing it though, even if I do only use 1 per flush.
Now it really seems like a bidet would save those in the sanitation industry from many headaches and extremely smelly days.
I have a septic tank and never had an issue with baby wipes, they are completely fine.
Bidets are a mess when other people use them, and in public spaces. Go to Asia and see if you still think bidets are God's gift to man
Don't forget that water is also there to absorb sound wave / vibration.
to prevent damage to concrete caused by sound pressure levels. :o
Most important it is for blocking sound to go up and resonate in the spacecraft.

why do I remember seeing this years ago?
I distinctly remember seeing something very, very similar to the first 3 seconds of this video.
You've seen my sex tape then?
Because the human brain is still in beta and you didn't.
Found this video from 10 months ago in 30 seconds of googling, so I'd imagine your brain definitely is in beta.
NASA lied. Fake news. MAGA
I liked seeing the grass clumps here and there. I mean if that's what NASA's launch pad looks like, maybe my driveway isn't so bad.
I would love to how this is made, designed etc.
There are massive elevated water tanks just off the launch pad at Kennedy Space Center.
Those tanks are slowly filled with water using pumps during the lead up to a launch.
The outflow pipe from the tank is connected to a valve and that valve is opened on ignition. The pipes are big enough that they empty those tanks in only a few seconds. No pumps are required for release, only gravity.
The water’s primary function is to break up the large standing sound waves that are generated by the rocket and who contain enough acoustical energy to vibrate the rocket apart on the pad. (The Space Shuttle had a similar system.)
Thermal cooling is a secondary feature.
I was going to say, I assumed there was some kind of water tower somewhere, as Florida is flat as a pancake, and this would need a lot of head.
the crazy thing is that all that water is still just over half of how much water it takes to raise a single cow. 490 lb(avg according to google) X 1800 gal (avg gal per lb) = 882,000 Gal
So what are the chances you would survive standing above the spout before its turned on?
If you survived the spout, the rocket would kill you.
There would be no spout there on an actual launch. The horizontal spray into the flame trench is there, but the spouts are just unconnected pipes. On a real launch, the ML/MLP would be on top of there and those pipes plug into that, and then the water gets distributed in a more useful way by plumbing inside there
Vertically spraying water either into the base of a rocket or directly next to it would have unpleasant consequences
Thank you for sharing that knowledge!
Thanks! That's really interesting!
Not very high lol
that doesnt look like 100ft, nvm yes it does
Yeah, the lack of depth perception makes it hard to grasp the size. Would be nice if they had something nearby to help get a better rough idea of the size. Even a small post with markers may have been helpful.
Go NASA go. gg wp
I imagine this will create a fair amount of steam. It will be interesting to see it in use.
Take that, Bellagio
Taco Bell the morning after
If you put a beach ball on the nozzle would it make it into orbit?
I had a coworker who used to work on something similar in the 80s. He was an agricultural engineer and NASA enlisted his help to create a water cooling system for their concrete launch pads. NASA figured if there was one group that knew how to get an even flow of water across a large area in a hurry it was agricultural engineers.
Very interesting! Thanks for sharing that piece of information.
This system is used to reduce extreme heat and energy generated by a rocket launch.🚀 On Oct. 15, 2018, the Ignition Overpressure Protection and Sound Suppression water deluge system at Kennedy Space Center's Launch Pad 39B was tested, sending water about 100 feet in the air. The test is part of preparation for launching our Space Launch System rocket on Exploration Mission-1 and subsequent missions.
Modifications were made to the pad after a previous wet flow test, increasing the performance of the system. During launch, this water deluge system will release approximately 450,000 gallons of water across the mobile launcher and Flame Deflector.

This is the real reason for these systems.
Most orbital rockets can destroy themselves from the vibrations they generate being reflected back towards them.
My wastewater plant is on effluent pumps now because the river is so high. We’re putting out about 450,000 gallons every 15 minutes.
This is gravity not pump fed
So this will be directly under the launching rocket? and starts when the rockets starts launching?
That's incredible. I can't imagine what their water bill looks like. I wonder if they recycle their water?
Cape Canaveral is surrounded by water so it would be much easier to pump in natural water sources than to use tap water.
I mean the water looks dirty as fuck at some points. I'm guessing its recycled, rain or still water
Wonder if it salt water pumped in from the ocean. Plenty of water there and frankly most of it probably drains back off there anyways
Didn't really think about it until now. It amazes me how much water we go through when you add up all the showers people take, hosing off their cars/patios, washing dishes, cleaning, so much stuff. I never really think about where most of it comes from, and how it all flows from there :) I wonder how long 450,000 gallons would last for a neighborhood or household over time.
Typical water use in North America is about 83 gallons / day for a single person, so 450,000 gallons would last a single person 14 years.
Thank you for doing the hard part!! Wow, I love thinking about the comparisons. Interesting stuff.
Worlds strongest bidet
They should put a boat or giant rubber duck or a test dummy in there next time they test it.
That is some mad max shit right there.
I have one of these on my toilet. Not impressive.
Water mushrooms, activate!
Oh WHY did I have Taco Bell last night?
Reposted from 2 weeks ago
Did you even read the video description? I even took the time to post it here to prevent the possibility of people from making such comments. This test was done after upgrades were made to the system. A previous test of the older system was uploaded (I believe sometime in 2017).
So no, not a repost from 2 weeks ago. It was uploaded to NASA's channel today. The test was conducted on October 15th, as written by NASA in the description. Please do both of us a favor in the future by reading the video description. Sometimes its even posted here in the comments for people who like to make shit up on the spot!
op's mom's bidet
I wish my mom had a 450,000gallon 100ft bidet jet. I would be using that thing all the time. My neighbors could see me from their backyard while I'm using it. Probably a one-time thing.
They must be using water from Flint, Mi
Launch pad? What launch? WTF, no rocket? Let's just pay for a ride up with the Russians! I guess if we don't have the money for a space program, let's just build a giant super soaker, that'll impress 'em.
You know they’ve been working on the successor to the Space Shuttle since before the shuttle program ended, right?
Just like there was development downtime between the Apollo era and the Shuttle, there is going to be development time between the Shuttle and the SLS.
You want us to go beyond low earth orbit, right?
Cause we couldn’t do that in a Shuttle.
So why not let private corps and the Russians handle the deliveries to low earth orbit, while we set our sights on Mars and the asteroid belt.
(‘Cause that’s kind of the idea.)
while we set our sights on Mars and the asteroid belt.
Beltalowda always be put upon by da Inners!
This is an essential part of the launch facilities for rockey launches, especially for the setup we use at KSC. Testing the newer water deploment systems is extremely important when building/revamping a launch facility.
You want humans to be launched by NASA? This has to be built and tested.
You want humans to be launched by NASA?
Not particularly. They figured that out half a century ago. I want them to pay somebody else to do it much more cheaply and concentrate on exploration.
