No one is more surprised than the people who invented it. S an Francisco is famous for many things. Sourdough bread. Its recent influx of hoodie-clad tech workers. So last year, the city tried a new tactic: walls that pee back. Of course, every city struggles with public urination, and punishments vary.
Can San Francisco Stop Public Urination with Paint That Pees Back?
I Used San Francisco’s First Outdoor Public Urinal | GQ
Right back atcha, pal. We hope. Testing out a new pee repellent that "pees back" to prevent public urination. Manufactured by Jacksonville, Fla. When liquids, like tinkle, piddle, wee or whatever the heck you call it, smack into it, pointed and peaked geometric shapes in the paint repel the liquid. Will the high-tech paint really curb offenders?
Public Works crews have finished painting nine city walls with pee-repellant paint and more are in the works. The painted surfaces make urine spray right back onto the shoes and pants of unsuspecting relief-seekers. We are trying different things to try to make San Francisco smell nice and look beautiful.
Hey, did you know that the city of San Francisco opened its first public, open-air urinal a week ago? I did. As a connoisseur of toilets, I like to keep up-to-date on all worldwide toilet news and affairs.
