• Did you know that your toilet can save your life during a house fire?


    I’m pretty sure your toilet has saved your life a few times when you most need it. But did you know that it can be really helpful during a house fire? Yes, it can. You can actually breathe air from it. So go get yourself a long plastic pipe and keep it in your bathroom, just in case.

    3. The air will likely be fed from the main soil pipe. In my Appartment I share the pipe with 2 other apartments. Great way to go, toasted on the outside with a hint of methane.

      1. Actually, the likelihood is that you'd boil to death. A family in America I think it was tried to survive a fire so they all jumped in their water tank and the fire heated the water from the outside and they couldn't escape.

      2. then you boil alive instead but i'm guess you use this if your house is smoke filled not totally in flames about to get you

      1. there is no assurance there is not smoke billowing out of the surrounding floors underneath you this would be a smoke free plan B

    10. So instead of the uncomfortable sensation of dying through smoke inhalation you can now die in agony as you burn to death in the confined space of your bathroom while leaving this world without dignity as you admire the skid marks your partner left the night before. Genius!

    11. As a retired firefighter....i see some people here need some educating. Almost everyone who perishes in a fire is due to carbon monoxide in the lungs, a by product of burning ( smoke) even though people are found burned up, they died long before the flames get to them by not having air to breath. If this buy's you 10 more minutes of breathing until firefighters arrive, there is a 90 percent chance of survival. Without the extra time the chances drop significantly.

      3. Yeah except for the fact that you're breathing hydrogen sulfide and methane and you're going to die from that instead.

    12. He's right- its the hard truth, seconds buy you time to leap out a window, save your kid all kinds of scenarios in that situation.

    13. How about getting yourself standby with an oxygen tank (like the ones firefighters carried on their backs)instead?

      ReplyDelete
    14. Most toilets in homes have a ventilation shaft that leads directly to the roof. Even though air isn't flowing properly, as the firefighter said, it could save you from suffocating for a little while.

    15. isn't that where the shitty water is at?

    16.

      1. Studies have shown wet clothes create steam burns, in a recent fire fighting course I was taught not to wet the clothes if attempting to get through fire, a wet cloth to filter smoke from the oxygen tho is still your best chance. Still your advice is better then most others so good work

      1. No that doesn't happen, an oxygen cylinder has a blow off valve to prevent over pressurizing. Tho a BA set would be to expensive for the average citizen and you would need training on how to use it.

      1. When you smash the window, the fire will spread even more.
        Fire needs the oxygen.

    23. Better if the pipe is connected to the overflow pipe in the cystern which goes straight outside on the side of your outer wall.......save you breathing "Pooey" air inside the waste pipe.....but it does work.....

    24. You will be inhaling more suffocating gasses from the pipe....so don't try it

    26. here's an idea, instead of trying to find a plastic tube to put down the toilet to increase chances of survival, try getting the fuck out

      ReplyDelete
    27. Thats why you should always flush.... or the only thing that plastic pipe will be jabbing is daddys chocolate hot dog down the u bend

    28. hahahahahahahahah!!!! this made me fucking laugh rofl!!!!
      breathing air from the toilet, albeit toxic air, it will be a LOT less harmless than the carbon monoxide (and by law it cant be too toxic due to various HSE acts) which will give you enough time to be able to rush out or even wait for a firefighter... its not fucking hard :L

    38. Everyone saying they would rather die has obviously not been in a fire fight or in a tall building.

      1. if you are in a tall building unable to utilize the previously identified fire escape exits, and the air is un-breathable this might keep you alive long enough to be rescued, by a firefighter who has an air-tank on his back.

    39. sewer gases are poisonous too. Why not use the sink pee trap instead of the toilet pee trap? At least its a different drainage system without all of the methane?
