About me

My journey to being a Toilet Expert

As soon as I was big enough my Dad had me helping him by getting tools out of his toolbox. From an early age I would sit quietly practicing cutting copper pipe until I was needed to hold something, fetch something or go crawling under floorboards. No this wasn’t the 19th century but the 1970’s.  Admittedly, being the son of a plumber does not qualify me as a toilet expert but as my career has progressed I now find myself the owner of a washroom services company and a bit of an authority on children’s hand hygiene and toilet equipment.

My aim is to highlight exceptional toilet design. Talk about issues around toilets and children as well as highlight good and bad practise in the industry – for those that have stumbled upon this ‘sector’ it is worth conservatively £500million+ in the UK alone.  The key areas are sanitary and nappy waste disposal, consumables such as soap and toilet paper as well as serviced equipment and services.  We will examine particular pieces of equipment such as hand dryers as well as service companies themseves and some of the ‘tricks of the trade’.  I hope this can become an online resource for anyone with issues with toilets either public or in the workplace and I will endeavour to provide impartial advice – however where there is a conflict of interest I will highlight and explain my position.  I may also throw in some toilet humour. Please feel free to contact me with issues and questions and I will reply.

    I am currently reviewing washroom services, current supplier is on a weekly rental with a monthly service visit, they never appeared last month yet we have pre paid as it is a quarterly bill and I am looking to change, what service provider in N Ireland would you recommend. one main point is the auto sanitising units we have 12 of these in each of the urinals, would it be more applicable to purchase the units rather that pay rental of £2.65 per week for each one?

      Hi Eugene, I would recommend o3 Group. I am a little confused regarding the urinals is it a trough urinal with 12 units or 12 services per annum per urinal? You can email me directly iain@caledoniawashrooms.com

    Hi. Love what you’ve done with your page. Very helpful. Thanks for taking the time to educate us. We are a 70 bedroom hotel based in the Newbury area and are looking for a local contractor to look after our hygiene services. Who do you recommend? Thanks in advance. Karen B.

      Hi Karen I would recommend Azure Hygiene 0118 962 6564 ask for David and mention my name (iain Stewart) or (so you get a fair comparison) CLD Services 01992 702 300 ask for Julie or Luke. Both offer great service in your area. Iain
