The number of bath chairs being built around the world has risen dramatically over the past few years, with China and Brazil both boasting massive new facilities.
But it’s hard to believe this trend won’t continue, as it does to many countries around the globe.
In fact, this year’s World Cup in Brazil saw a staggering number of new bathrooms being built.
The new water pipes in Brazil are a major factor in the increase in new bathrooms, as Brazil’s government is hoping to reduce the amount of pollution it has to deal with from the city’s booming construction industry.
Brazil’s construction boom in the last few years has been fueled by huge government subsidies to builders and developers, but the country is currently facing its first serious pollution crisis in decades.
Since 2013, the country has been dealing with a severe increase in water contamination levels, which are now reaching unprecedented levels, according to the UN.
In 2015, the Brazilian government estimated the pollution levels of the country were at 7,400 times higher than the maximum allowable level of 35,000 milligrams per cubic meter.
Brazil is also facing an enormous shortage of water, with the country facing a shortage of more than half a billion cubic meters of water per day.
With no water available, many of the newly built bathrooms are being used to store wastewater and waste water from factories.
Brazilian authorities are now aiming to solve the water problem by building an entirely new network of water treatment plants to store the polluted wastewater.
According to the country’s environment ministry, the new pipes are being built to hold up to 500,000 cubic meters (6,400 cubic feet) of water.
The pipes are connected to a specialised system which filters the waste water, according the ministry.
As well as storing the waste, the pipes also serve as a storage tank for the wastewater that was produced from the construction industry, which is then pumped into an incinerator.
In total, around 10,000 new toilets are being installed each day.
The World Cup has brought new construction projects into the spotlight in Brazil, but experts are worried that the country will continue to build more and more of these bath chairs, according The Local.
The fact that so many new bathrooms are coming online in the capital is also a sign that there are not many places left to put them.
There are also concerns that the problem of pollution and water contamination in Brazil is going to continue to grow.
