The Loogun - the hygienic, brush-free way to keep your toilet spotless
We keep our homes clean and tidy, yet have a brush next to the toilet that is filthy, drips on the floor, and contains toxic chemicals. To keep the toilet spotlessly white, we have to scrub it with a brush that gets dirtier the more you use it, and yet is kept right next to the toilet for everyone to see. To solve this, we have developed a hygienic, child-safe and chemical-free way to clean the toilet using a blast of clean water. This, along with your weekly scrub to prevent hard water stains, is all you’ll need to ensure you never have to touch a dirty brush again.
Unique, powerful & 100% hygienic
The Loogun is entirely different. Holding it close to the rim of the toilet, it sprays a powerful jet of clean water that washes away stubborn marks both above and below the water line. The Loogun never touches the toilet, so the device stays beautifully hygienic, safe for children, and enjoyable to use.
We needed to ensure the Loogun would clean submerged surfaces without splashing beyond the bowl. After 2 years of design and engineering, we’re delighted with the result and are ready for production.
Sleek & simple
The sleek, neutral design looks good in any bathroom. It’s simple to use and the 4 x AA batteries last for over 270 uses. The reservoir holds 300ml of water, enough for around 6 uses, and can be filled under any tap quickly and easily.
100% Safe for children
Curious toddlers put almost everything they discover in the mouths. As brushes are covered in bacteria and toxic cleaning chemicals such as bleach, keeping them beside the toilet poses a significant health risk to young children.
As the Loogun uses clean water and never comes in contact with the toilet surfaces or cleaning chemicals, it stays clean and 100% safe for toddlers. We've also engineered it to spray only when pointing down, so it won't be used as a toy.
Our team has spent two years in design and engineering, and have utility and design patents pending in 29 countries. With 39 custom parts, we have significant tooling and manufacturing costs to cover. Although we are investing as much of this capital as we can, we do need help from the Kickstarter community to bring the Loogun to life. If you like the Loogun, please help us by backing the project.
Founders Calan Horsman and Henry Chamberlain are entrepreneurs with backgrounds in economics, and have worked together in two previous startups. Calan is a creative and highly conscientious user experience designer with a passion for aesthetics and user interaction. Henry is an experienced entrepreneur who has built and sold multiple online businesses. The team also includes Neil White, Steve Wagstaff and Steve Smith who are experienced product design engineers. They have the engineering and production experience needed to ensure our final product is of exceptional quality.
Risks and challenges
Over the last two years, we have worked hard to ensure we have every detail covered in engineering, and the Loogun is ready to go into production. Our manufacturing partner is one of the world leaders in plastics, pumps and motors, manufacturing over 200 million products each year for some of the largest global brands. Our team will be on hand to monitor the production pipeline from start to finish.
With three experienced product engineers, our team has ample resources to mitigate any challenges arising during manufacturing and delivery. Any unexpected hiccups will be communicated to backers as early as possible as we work quickly to resolve them.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
