42 Percent Of Americans Pee In The Shower - 7 Percent Never Bathe

PISCATAWAY, N.Y. (Wireless Flash) -- Urine trouble now. According to a new survey, at least four out of every 10 Americans pee while taking a shower.

According to a shower survey sponsored by VertiSpa, 42 percent urinate while bathing, certainly pissing off the 58 percent who don't.

That's not the only stat splashed from the shower study. The average shower is 101 degrees Fahrenheit and uses nearly 50 gallons of water.

-- 52 percent of Americans sing in the shower, with "Singin' In The Rain" being the top tune.

-- 53 percent of people shower in the morning, while 29 percent wait until evening.

-- Finally, the scariest stat of all: 7 percent of Americans claim they never bathe at all.

Lysol® makes a great Shower Curtain Spray, which I use everday, and would aid those who pee in the shower, which I don't do. Yuk.

Ewww. Splash about? Sounds like a bath, not a shower. And I am not saying it is the height of civilization. I just have seen no evidence to support the assertion that it is the bottom or anywhere near it.

I also happen to think that peeing in the shower is actually BETTER hygene than doing it standing up in a toilet. Pee is sterile at first, but becomes "dirty" fast. In the shower it never gets a chance to hang around. But some ALWAYS splashes it's way out of the toilet. Also, some are not very good "shots." That actually DOES lead to a very unsanitary situation.

So I hereby make the claim, backed by the previous paragraph, that peeing in the shower is MORE sanitary than using a toilet!

Nya, nya. (I just added that last part to increase my credibility).

I got three words for ya: Soaking in piss.

Most people over 40 should recognize that. If not, time for a little trip down memory lane.

Not to mention . . . Peeing in your shower will make your drain and your pipes stink! Ultimately, your whole house will smell bad. Don't believe it? Have your plumber haul off your toilets and just do your biz in those open pipes. Whew! Modern toilets are designed to keep the smell from escaping into the house. Pee in your shower and you might as well throw your toilets out!

(Forget everything I just said if you're German or French. We know you guys don't have showers.)

I don't know how to respond to that. Some truths are just self-evident.

That sounds a lot like, "it's just how I've been conditioned, but I've never actually stopped to wonder if it made sense."

No it won't.

Ultimately, your whole house will smell bad.

Nope.

Don't believe it? Have your plumber haul off your toilets and just do your biz in those open pipes. Whew!

That's a false comparison, since by removing the toilet you'd be removing the built-in "trap" as well. That's an invalid comparison to the shower, since shower drains *do* have traps, they aren't just open pipes, as a toiletless toilet drain would be.

Modern toilets are designed to keep the smell from escaping into the house.

And modern shower drains are also designed to keep smell from escaping into the house -- if they weren't, gasses from the community sewer line could enter the house through the shower drain:

Ironically for this thread, the plumbing term for that device is a "P-Trap"...

Pee in your shower and you might as well throw your toilets out!

Your conclusion does not follow.

Yes, but if you look at that P-trap carefully, you'll see there is a segment of pipe above the trap but below the floor of the shower stall. Bacteria will build up in that segment of pipe and it'll stink. And if enough people in your family pee in the shower every day, it'll stink almost as bad as any public urinal.

So you see my conclusion was indeed valid.

ONLY if you never run water in the shower. But then, your point -- such as it is -- applies equally well to the trap in your toilet... If you never bother flushing.

But since that's not how people actually use toilets (or showers), your point is rather irrelevant.

If your argument were valid (and again, it's not) then showers would routinely stink up the house from the effect of bacteria on the grime and dead skin cells you wash off while showering. Try plugging up your shower drain and then letting your shower water sit there stagnating for a week or two... It's no rosewater either. But in actual use, your washing water flushes itself to beyond the P-Trap due to the clean water that follows it down the drain during a normal shower. And so does any other liquid that goes down the drain during the shower...

So you see my conclusion was indeed valid.

No, I see that your conclusion is still incorrect and based on misunderstandings about how the plumbing actually works under actual use.

ONLY if you never run water in the shower.

Well, water runs in your toilet bowl, too, but I do hope you clean it out once in a while.

Bacteria will build up despite running water. And not just any bacteria, but the pathogenic organisms that thrive in raw sewage. Let's make a deal: You don't shower in my house and I DEFINITELY won't shower in yours!!!

But then, your point -- such as it is -- applies equally well to the trap in your toilet... If you never bother flushing.

No it doesn't. You're incorrect again. Your toilet traps bacteria completely below and behind the trap, unlike when you pee down the shower drain. I was going to post this diagram earlier, but figured everybody knew this stuff. I see I was wrong in that assumption.

As you can see, in a toilet, NONE of the long-term bacterial buildup is above the trap, unlike in your shower.

If your argument were valid (and again, it's not) then showers would routinely stink up the house from the effect of bacteria on the grime and dead skin cells you wash off while showering.

False comparison. We're talking about pathogens that grow in raw sewage. Do you want to stand in them? You want your family and your guests to stand in them? You want to wipe them on your towels when you dry your feet and track them across your floor into bed with you? Be my guest (just not at my house!).

But in actual use, your washing water flushes itself to beyond the P-Trap due to the clean water that follows it down the drain during a normal shower. And so does any other liquid that goes down the drain during the shower...

Hope you don't use that argument to avoid cleaning your toilets.

BTW, when WAS the last time you scrubbed out your shower/urinal drains??? Do your drains ever tend to back up while you are showering/peeing in them?

You see, it's not just the pee that is the problem. It's the smelly and dangerous pathogens that like to live in urine that you and your family and your guests are soaking in when that happens.

Don't argue. My logic is sound. And stop peeing in your tub, for Heaven's sake!

I can see if it's some kind of emergency (the toilet's broke or whatever), but as a normal kind of daily thing to do? you've got to be kidding. I really hope nobody asks these people if they pee in swimming pools. I don't think I'd want them in mine.

Again, thanks for the red herring. This in no way makes correct your incorrect statements about shower drains.

[But then, your point -- such as it is -- applies equally well to the trap in your toilet... If you never bother flushing.]
No it doesn't.

The hell it doesn't. You're sounding like the guy in the Monty Python sketch, who just disagrees with whatever the other guy says.

You're incorrect again.

And when was I incorrect the *first* time?

Your toilet traps bacteria completely below and behind the trap, unlike when you pee down the shower drain.

Behind the trap is sufficient. Your fixation on "below" is a red herring, since BOTH the toilet trap and the shower trap have surfaces "above" the water in the downstream side of the trap, *and* drain the water beyond the trap DOWNHILL away from the trap itself.

I was going to post this diagram earlier, but figured everybody knew this stuff.

Don't presume to teach your Grandpa to suck eggs, sonny.

I see I was wrong in that assumption.

I see that you try to make up in arrogant snottiness that which you have failed to demonstrate with evidence. Are you *sure* you're not a liberal?

As you can see, in a toilet, NONE of the long-term bacterial buildup is above the trap, unlike in your shower.

See the areas labeled "Weir" and "Trapway"? Oh looky -- they're "above the trap". Care to try again?

I figured everybody knew this stuff, but I see I was wrong in that assumption...

[If your argument were valid (and again, it's not) then showers would routinely stink up the house from the effect of bacteria on the grime and dead skin cells you wash off while showering.]
False comparison.

Valid comparison.

We're talking about pathogens that grow in raw sewage.

If you think that your normal shower/bath water doesn't likewise have "pathogens that grow in raw sewage", you're even more unfamiliar with biology than you are with plumbing.

Do you want to stand in them? You want your family and your guests to stand in them? You want to wipe them on your towels when you dry your feet and track them across your floor into bed with you?

See above. You're already standing in them. But thanks for yet another red herring.

[But in actual use, your washing water flushes itself to beyond the P-Trap due to the clean water that follows it down the drain during a normal shower. And so does any other liquid that goes down the drain during the shower...]
Hope you don't use that argument to avoid cleaning your toilets.

Of course not. Red herring again.

BTW, when WAS the last time you scrubbed out your shower/urinal drains???

When was the last time you scrubbed out yours? See above, you've got the same alleged "long-term bacteria buildup" with yours as I do with mine, but I doubt you've reamed out your shower drain recently. Your dead skin cells, hair, rinsings from your genitals and butt, junk you tracked in on the soles of your feet and living between your toes, airborne bacteria trapped in your hair, the gunk from under your band-aid, whatever the dog left on you while licking your hand, etc., all go down that drain. So don't try to pretend that your shower drain is somehow pristine enough to eat off of while mine is a hellhole of toxins just because once a month or so I find myself needing to relieve myself while showering and see no need to step out to a different drain hole into the same wastewater system in order to dispose of it, especially when I'm already standing over one that's being actively flushed by running water at the moment and is already far enough from a surgical sterility that a bit of fresh pee isn't going to make a bit of difference. Pouring my mop water out into the tub to dispose of it is going to be a thousand times worse.

Do your drains ever tend to back up while you are showering/peeing in them?

No, does your toilet ever overflow and run into the kitchen? And do your red herrings ever cease? And if your shower drains do back up because of poor maintenance, don't kid yourself about the level of bacteria in *your* shower either.

You see, it's not just the pee that is the problem.

Is it just me, or does LibWhacker seem to be unusually obsessed with urine?

It's the smelly and dangerous pathogens that like to live in urine that you and your family and your guests are soaking in when that happens.

Then you'd better banish your toilet before it overruns into your vegetable garden and contaminates your red herring patch.

Don't argue. My logic is sound.

I'm sure you believe that.

Hmm, or maybe not -- if you were sure your "logic" was sound, why would you start flinging so many red herrings as if you were trying to flail about, distracting attention away from your original failed points (e.g., your false assertion that a shower drain is like an open sewer line), while introducing a scattershot of half a dozen new points in the hopes that one might stick?

You're entitled to whatever emotion-driven response you care to have.

Yes, because apparently there aren't any rational reasons (as opposed to "that's what I was taught and anything else is outrageous, because, well, it's different") by which such an argument could be won.

I really hope nobody asks these people if they pee in swimming pools. I don't think I'd want them in mine.

Swimming pools (and hot tubs) are quite different, as you'd see if you'd read the rest of the thread.

I'm sure michael moore falls into the 7%. At 350+ lbs, he probably cannot find a bathtub or shower large enough to fit into.

I don't know if it's true or not .. but a friend of a friend knows a guy that says he was hired, for a while, with three other people to help wash him down. He said they used a pressure washer and brushes and then squeegee'd him off afterwards.

For that price, he could just run himself thru a car wash.

I'm glad to have people chime in with the same perspective I had, something like "Huh? What? You do what?"

Most bathrooms situate the toilet less than ten feet from the shower, more likely less than five. Why is it so hard to pee before getting into the shower, or just after getting out?

Absent some kind of spastic bladder that makes the in-shower-pee unavoidable, there's no sound explanation whatsoever.

It's not a red-herring, Itchyman. The point is quite simple and you could understand it, too, if only you'd pause for a moment and think about it. You've got raw sewage in your urinal drain (let's call it for what it is) and it's stinkin' up your house. You've got raw sewage in your toilet, too, but you clean that out every week or two because you don't want it stinkin' up the house. Therefore, you should scrub out your urinal drain once in a while, but you don't do that, do 'ya? Gross.

How long have you lived there, old timer, about 40 years? I gotta say, you must like the fragrance. Jesus, why don't you just pee in a bunch of pop bottles and set them up around your house and let them age for about 40 years? Come to think of it, why not pee in all your sinks when you've gotta go and save yourself a trip to the bathroom? And gee whiz, a little shot in the dishwasher now and then wouldn't do any harm either, what with all the running water in there, lol!

Look, the only red herring thrown out in our little discussion has been your insistence on comparing ordinary household drains with urinal drains. As everyone who keeps a clean house knows, household drains are not a problem. Urinal drains stink to high heaven because of the fungi and pathogens that like growing in the medium.

Actually, I think he was only cleaning himself in the shower, but I still found it disgusting.

Only those who were a little bit too thoroughly toilet trained do not.

I'm pretty sure Hitler was opposed to people peeing in shower drains too. I seem to recall him sending them to concentration camps. YOU probably want to send shower pee-ers to concentration camps, dont'cha Lib?

"A. Because it is disgusting

B. Because should you happen to have a bladder infection it is not harmless.

C. It can help prevent incontinence in the future."

A. is no argument at all. Why is it disgusting?

B. has never been a problem for me, and even if it was I still assert that it would be harmlessly washed away down the drain.

C. I have no idea what you're talking about.

Ah, now you've said it.

For the sake of convenience, why aren't all these shower pee-ers peeing in the sink instead (run the water a bit for a rinse, but far less than a flush--saves water doncha know). It's liberating, and after all, urine can be used as an antiseptic.

What a revolutionary time-saving breakthrough!

>.If elitism means having high standards, then put me down for being an elitist.<<

That statement confuses me. What do high standards have to do with peeing in the shower?
