A well-publicized, futuristic-looking new public toilet in San Francisco only operated for a few days before technical issues reportedly shut it down temporarily during the weekend, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
JCDecaux, a street furniture and advertising company, installed the toilet that opened in Embarcadero Plaza Wednesday, one of 25 to be set up in the area in exchange for advertising kiosks as part of an agreement with the San Francisco Public Works Department (PWD), the outlet reported. PWD Deputy Policy and Communications Director Beth Rubenstein said the facility closed for about two hours over the weekend during its normal 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. operational period.
The toilet had been used around 400 times by the following Monday, Rubenstein told the Chronicle.

SFist, another local news outlet, mocked, “A highly hyped new SF bathroom hailed as “the future of public toilets” lasted only three days into said future, as the high-tech bathroom kiosk quickly had to be relieved of its duty and found itself closed for repairs.”

A new space-aged looking pod is the newest feature on San Francisco’s Embarcadero. But it’s not a new art piece, it’s a new self-cleaning public toilet. https://t.co/zy2kO5pOPd
