A California man says he has installed a device in his house that makes it water-tight, so that he can get rid a water-filled toilet that he said he doesn’t want to live in anymore.
Joe Salzano installed a water purifying device in the kitchen sink of his home in San Diego, Calif., in July.
The device is meant to keep water in the house from dripping out and getting into his bathroom, where he cleans.
Salzano said the device is made by San Diego-based company Water-Powered Solutions and was meant to help him get rid he does not want to be living in a house that has to flush its toilet every time he needs to use it.
The company has been in business for more than a decade.
“The idea was to create a device that would not drip water, but that would keep the water out,” Salzanos attorney, Paul Meehan, told ABC News.
Meehan told ABC affiliate KGTV that Salzans water-recycling system will last for at least 100 years and will keep him from having to flush it every time.
“We think this device is going to be able to provide the level of protection that he needs,” Meeham said.
In addition to the water-resistant system, Salzanes water-repellent toilet, which he purchased for $1,600, has an alarm system to prevent leaks.
He also has a built-in heat sensor that can keep the unit at the proper temperature to prevent overheating.MEEHAN told ABC news that Salzerans device will not allow him to get a job or do any chores he has to do, and he is concerned that he may need to move out of the house and into a rental apartment to live out the remaining years of his life.
