Things You Most Likely Didn’t Know About Poop In An Airplane Toilet

Have you ever been on a plane and nature calls and you do everything you can to hold your poop well most of us do this but it’s not because we’re worried about the smell it’s because well some of us are scared of where the poop is going to end up if

you wonder what happens to your poop in an airplane well keep watching every airplane has a certain number of tanks on board to collect and hold the waste after you poop and flush your waist goes into a

holding tank or a suction tank until the plane lands and the tanks can be punk the chances of these tanks leaking is extremely low unless there’s a serious malfunction in the system the tanks on airplanes have a certain limit of waste

that they can hold commercial airlines have more tanks on board because they have more people on board if the tanks are not flushed after a flight and they get over filled it can create a serious problem in some cases the poop will

spill over outside of the plane dropping down on a house or a car it doesn’t happen very often however there are records where it has happened at least once some believe that these were false

reports given by those on the ground though one single storage tank is about 20 gallons yet it can hold hundreds of gallons of waste in order to be sure that the tanks will hold enough the number of passengers on board is limited

most aircrafts are designed to hold more than enough waste to accommodate every person on board it’s very important that they are pumped however the airline’s don’t want to risk an overflow in midair right after the plane lands and the

passengers disembark a lavatory service truck will come in and hook up to the receptacle on the bottom of the plane this is how the tanks are pumped clean so that the plane is ready for its next group of passengers if the tanks are not

pumped after each and every flight the chances of an overflow are much higher this is why the plane will not take off for its next flight until those tanks are pumped when the waste is pumped from the plane

not only does it smell but it’s extremely gross what do you expect its human waste well if you’ve ever driven by a city’s sewage plant you’ll notice that the air tends to smell especially on a hot day

the same thing happens when the waste is pumped at the airport after the plane lands thanks for watching facts verse and be sure to subscribe for more just playing facts to get it playing facts airplane that idea that was kind of a

stretch I’m sorry
