Subject:  Automatic toilets
Message:  Are toilets that flush automatically allowed to be used on Shabbat? Recenlty I was by a hotel that had such (there were others so I didn't use it) and I plan to be there again for a weekend.

Please advise if I can use them for the next time.


Reply:  You can ignore the auto toilet. Use it and let it do it's thing.

It's flushing it for the next guy/gal, not for you.

You never really know which movement of yours actually causes it to flush.

And it is at most "Kilachar Yad." (being done in a different way than the normal).
