About this project
There is a problem that everyone knows and faces every day, yet we refuse to speak about it. We decided it was time to end the silence on this taboo subject and solve this problem that plagues us all: bathroom odor. Let’s be honest...we’ve all been there when a stomach ache hits and we don’t want other people to know about it, let alone smell it.
No longer does one need to feel embarrassed about bathroom usage because the patented Fresh Air Plus toilet seat eliminates unsavory odors to create a comfortable and, dare we say, pleasant experience for all.
Here’s how it works
When the user sits down, a sensor triggers a fan to turn on inside the toilet bowl to filter any unpleasant odors from the toilet bowl, through a hose and to the outdoors.
It all happens BEFORE the embarrassing and unsavory odors can escape and diffuse into the bathroom.
Installation is simple
1. Remove your old toilet seat, and flush it down the drain (okay, maybe just throw it away).
2. After removing your current seat and the screws that hold it on, simply place the simple-fitting Fresh Air Plus on your toilet and voila! The seat is ready to go as soon as you plug it in the nearest outlet.
3. The last part is running the hose to the outside. To do this, all you need is:
- drill bit
- a 1’¼” paddle bit for wood drilling
- silver finish ring to make it look nice
Start by drilling a hole in the wall behind your toilet with the drill bit. Next, widen the hole with the wood eater bit. Then pass the Fresh Air Hose through the silver finish and stick it into the hole. You will need to repeat the same hole on the outside of the house to run the hose all the way to the outdoors.
It only takes minutes, and you can see video instructions below.
Not the handy type? That's okay! You can hire a handyman to do it for you for just $50-$100 if your bathroom has an outward-facing wall. If your bathroom does not contain an outdoor-facing wall, you may need to hire a handyman to run the hose through the wall and connect with the same ventilation pathway that your standard bathroom fan uses. The cost may range from $100 to $200 for this.
Why Should I Use the Fresh Air Plus instead of other methods of odor removal?
Traditional ceiling odor-removal fans are an inefficient solution because they allow odors to permeate into the room before removing. They also suck out heated and cooled air, causing you to lose money on your utilities.
Air fresheners are just a mask for odors, and often make what you’ve done in the restroom even more obvious.
Fresh Air Plus makes having people over (even that special someone) worry-free.
So throw that traditional seat away and back us today!
Not to mention, you'll never come out of the bathroom with this kind of embarrassment again...
Creating the Fresh Air Plus has been really fun, and we know so many people are going to find it incredibly useful. However, bringing a brand new product to production is no easy task. We are launching a pre-order campaign on Kickstarter in order to secure the funding necessary to pay for startup manufacturing and distribution costs so that we can grow as a brand and bring the Fresh Air Plus to everyone.
Back Fresh Air so you'll never come out of the bathroom to this sort of embarrassment again. This product is patented. Tests have shown excellent results. All backers of our products will forget the bad odor forever and never regret the spent money for this.
Risks and challenges
We understand and have planned for any risks and challenges that may present themselves throughout the campaign. We've made sure to take the necessary steps to minimize risk and ascertain that the process runs smoothly. We have a fully functional prototype, and we have also set up manufacturing channels through which the Fresh Air Plus will be produced in an orderly and timely manner.
We will remain in touch with our backers through the entire process to ensure that everything is properly communicated and taken care of. Thank you for backing our project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
