Frequently Asked Questions
Squatting is the healthy, natural way to eliminate
How do I get the best results?
Relax! The optimal elimination posture is a relaxed position as close as possible to a natural squat. Squatting becomes easier with continued use as your body adjusts to the new Squatty Potty® toilet posture.
How do I use it?
Start with your Squatty Potty ® stored under the toilet. Take a seat. While sitting, pull the Squatty Potty® out to a comfortable distance and place your feet on the foot rests. Remember, the more you simulate a natural squat position, the better.
Will it work with my toilet?
The Squatty Potty® works perfectly with ANY standard toilet. A 7" Squatty Potty works with both standard (14"-15.5") and comfort height (16"-18") toilets. If you are limber or an advanced squatter, a 9" Squatty Potty will work best.
How often should I use my Squatty Potty?
Use the Squatty Potty every time you go to the bathroom... even when you tinkle!
What should I expect?
The Squatty Potty® may feel different at first, but the body quickly adjusts and the new healthy way of eliminating quickly becomes second nature. For most people, the difference is immediate while for some it takes about a week to adjust, relax and get things moving.
How do I clean it?
For those who sprinkle when you tinkle, clean your Squatty Potty® with your favorite toilet cleaner and a soft rag.
