The Penguin Story:
Penguin Toilets founders Larry Trowbridge and Pat Stack were in the hotel construction and renovation industry, so they had seen their fair share of toilet overflow catastrophes and the resulting damage that incurred from them. One day while visiting a hotel that had recently experienced an overflow that resulted in extensive damage not only to the hotel room where the mishap occurred, but several rooms below it, they raised the question “Why don’t they make a toilet with an overflow?”.
It seemed like a valid question, since sinks and tubs have them, so they started what became a four year venture of research and development to create a toilet with a secondary drain system. The end result of their efforts was a toilet that not only set a new industry standard and performed fantastic… it helped prevent overflows!
Knowing that they were on to something big, they contracted and partnered with one of the largest OEM toilet manufacturers in the world to produce them and the rest, as they say, is history. Just as many of us have never known a life without indoor plumbing, so too may many people in the future be unable to recall a day when toilets overflowed. The most exciting part of that statement is that the future starts today with an innovative idea that was long overdue!
Penguin Toilets can effectively save property owners millions of dollars in overflow damage each year and we’re very proud to be a part of that. Thank you for reading our story and we sincerely hope you love your new Penguin Toilet.
