San Francisco Installs Walls That Fight Pee

Almost every city struggles with the problem of not having enough bathrooms, leaving smelly problems for the public to endure.

San Francisco earlier this year began investigating a novel approach to clean up the human waste in certain areas: walls that send the pee back. The city is notorious for its stench in some neighborhoods, stemming from those who pee in public. The Chamber of Commerce said it is a growing concern and a quality-of-life issue.

The city's new weapon against the problem is a pee-resistant paint called Ultra-Ever Dry, made by a Florida-based chemical cleanup and waste management company called Ultra Tech. The company describes it as "super-hydrophobic" and says it has practical applications, water-resistant boots and gloves being a prime example.

So far, it's been applied to nine city walls throughout the city, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. There are plans for more.


An interesting solution to a disgusting situation.
