I want a japanese ostomy sink in my house!

 
This is the best website for people with an Ostomy. So much understanding.

i really want a japanese ostomy sink/toilet! 

how does someone in the u.s. get one of those? i tried googling it a thousand ways but no joy. 

daggone it, i want one of those sinks.  do any of y'all have one?  or advice on how to get one?

 

Contact a plumbing shop or custom bathroom place, I bet they could get you one.

Check with cplumber, a member on this site.  I think he's actually a plumber and may be helpful.

thank you, my sweet stoma peeps, for your replies. 

no, i don't want a sprayer on a toilet, i want this:

it needs to be sink level, i don't want to stoop, work on my aim, none of that.  i want a sink like in link.  i'm even willing to turn my 1-bath house's bathroom sink into something like this (guest can wash their hands in the kitchen if they're afraid of my poop sink). 

i want this sink and want it to have a sprayer, too. 

i want it!

Simply take that picture to a plumbing shop or bathroom remodel place and show it to them. They probably have a catalog that has it in it.

Very cool!

i tried that. this hardware is hard to find.

 

the more i think about the sink-toilet, the more i'm mad that it's not readily available here for ostomates.

all of the over-the-toilet-empty variations we are required to maneuver are absolutely stupid - awkward, messy, and wasteful (of tp to minimize splash).

or you kneel: but what about if you have bad hips and/or knees?  what about public restrooms? gah!

one could opt for disposables but then you have to figure out how to stash your poop without smelling up your joint. 

we need these sink-toilets. 

we need to find a source of them (from japan most likely) and acquaint some plumbers with their installation protocol.  

how can we make that happen?  who's with me?

You’re gonna make me find you a source, aren’t you? 😁

 

Ok. M’s Japan-inc. com I’m still trying to decipher what is written and the video 😂

saw this, too, and have no idea what it says.  the sink i posted would be much easier to install and stand alone.  let's divide it into the basin and the backsplash - the backsplash features could be assembled to suit the user, but the basin ... where does one get one?

 

That picture I posted would be no more difficult to install than the one you like(which I’m still searching for). I’m sure it’s no more than just a regular toilet drain with 1 additional waterline for hot and cold water.

do you have a supplier for the one you posted? 

that's where i'm running into a brick wall. 

 

No, but I’m looking.

Oh, that's cool!  I gotta get one just to confuse the hell out of my friends when they come over to party on the weekends!  Finding THAT in the bathroom after a few beers is gonna make for some fun entertainment!!!  I can hear the WTFs being screamed now!!!

;O)

alex, i hope we'll find one, or figure out how to ship one here, and start a grand experiment.

it could change our osto-lives!

: )

 

I'm guessing they're only installed in public restrooms in Japan.  Can't see such a toilet adding to the resale value of a home.  But I would be surprised if none of the US vendors for hospital bathroom fixtures didn't have one in their catalog.  Interesting, for sure.

;O)

But I really really enjoy Japanese cuisine! Hmmmm

 

yes - that's a great idea, asking hospital vendors! thank you!

since my last reply i have installed a browser translation add-on. looks like there are three major brands in ostomy sinks, M's, TOTO, and something that starts with L which i forgot by now because that link gave me a 404. 

that sweet translation add-on allowed me to send a message to the M's people.  didn't write to TOTO because i was taken aback by their price - close to 2mil yen, which is thousands...  i do intend to get my act together and contact them.  maybe my math was all wrong.

wouldn't it be cool if we could order a half dozen, one for me and 5 for osto-neighbors, have some productive conversations with our favorite plumbers about it, and try this mess out?

 

Sounds like you have it under control, nice work. The interesting thing about all this is how many Ostomate’s are in Japan that they have Ostomy sinks in their public restrooms?

it's not like they have more of us per capita, it's that there was one really vocal woman who said "hey!" and created a lot of awareness.  hence all the public ostomy sink toilets. 

maybe we could be that voice wherever we are?

Hi be,

  If you're serious about the sink thing.......contact these fine folks. They have global reach with organizations in every country.  Japan has one of the highest member counts of ostomates in their chapter.  I'd think they could assist you in finding what you seek. Maybe you could trade someone in Japan a case of Jack Daniels for a slightly used ostomy toilet!!  JD is highly prized over there!
