The Piss Pad - Urine Splashback Diffusing Target
I don't have the urine splashback problem The Piss Pad diffusing target claims to solve anymore because I've been sitting on the toilet to pee since about week 3 of the covid. Why, you ask? Because that's when I got my Bio Bidet and began enjoying 15- to 30-minute lounging sessions on my heated head with warm water rinsing and hot drying action even when all I need to take is a 10-second leak. It's a small but wonderful bit of bliss. And thanks to working from home, I have tons of extra time since I don't have to commute, or worry that one of my co-workers will notice I'm Slacking them from the bathroom for 15 to 30 minutes 4 times a day.
But back to The Piss Pad, which I do think is a great little low-tech gadget for the dudes out there - the majority of dudes, I'm sure - who are still standing pissers. The Piss Pad looks like a stamped out disc of extremely thick steel wool. In fact, it is made of dense polyurethane fibers its Canadian makers, New Normal, say weave together to form thousands of inner channels that prevent splash-happy pee from ricocheting right back atcha (and your floor, and the top and outer surfaces of your toilet bowl) and instead redirect it in a smooth flow.
The Piss Pad measures 40mm in diameter and is 15mm thick. It has a microsuction waterproof adhesive backing for sticking the pad to your toilet, and if you want to remove or replace the target, it peels right back off. New Normal also notes that while The Piss Pad's role in life is to be dirtied and desecrated during each use, once you flush the toilet it will be rinsed clean along with the rest of your bowl.
The Piss Pad is running a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter through August 22, 2020. Click here if you want to learn more about the urine splashback diffusing target, and pledge to be one of the first to try one out.
