The Hunt for Pink Toilet

I have just donned my jodhpurs and rinsed the Ribena out of my hipflask, because if one is to go hunting the Holy Loo o'er hill and website, one wants to have all the right accessories. I think it's the lack of jodhpurs that's been working against me so far (only rigorous scientific experiments will tell, of course).

Up to this point, in the absence of jodhpurs, I've unearthed several designer toilet lids illustrated with dolphins, one pink toilet here (but its exit-shute goes straight down rather than curving off to the right as per my plumbing), and any number of bog-ordinary white numbers.

Also, I have tentatively decided that whoever decided to call their dunny-design company Fowler may not have thought the matter through thoroughly.

What happens if you find one but it's the wrong pink?

indeed - and can you tell us what is the right pink, in case we see one which isn't already attached to a bathroom?

Nails, salmons and peaches will not be entertained. No sirree.

Lucy T, that's a very kindly question. It's a sort of pastel rose pink. And the bend has to head to the right.

Experience has taught me that salmon/ peach in a bathroom suite makes illness twice as unpleasant.

hello baron v harlot (your esquiredness, &c.), just in case i happen upon a rose-coloured toilet, can you provide a photo of a loo whose posterior would connect appropriately with your plumbing. ta.

Hi Cis, not sure if I can find a photo. I'll need to pay more attention next time I'm in the future residence (which prolly won't be for a few weeks), but I do remember that it has a right outlet (assuming right as you look towards the toilet, not as you sit on it), unlike most which have an outlet straight out the back.
