Thanks for taking the time to read the post.
It's been an interesting journey for me so far. The neat thing about it is (for me at least) it's like playing a role playing game for the first time. You never know whatâ€™s around the corner or how long it's going to last.
I don't think there are any great written rules on how to go from start to finish. I am sure everyone has opinions and guide lines but every idea/invention, IMO, needs to be handled in its own way.
It's a learning experience especially for a first timer. I have found that it is best not to rush, never quite you researching, watch out for the predators (nothing is really for free or a great deal), be open minded, go with you best thoughts on how to proceed though the whole process and always be ready for failure because it's a lurking reality.
The reason I have taken the route of exposure is that I felt it was important to document and record the originality of my idea worldwide once it was protected as much as possible. This in itself is further protection as well IMO. People are quick to point it out for you if it's been done (and thatâ€™s a good thing, it's free). So far all that has come back was information I already had about a hand full of odorless toilet's and IMO have room for improvements that mine addresses.
I realize it's still a long shot that my invention will mature into reality, but for now I have the satisfaction of knowing that I have presented to the market, the potential possibility of a first odorless and overflow-less system that can be incorporated into any residential/commercial toilet or urinal. It's hard to describe but for me as a first time inventor that is a satisfying feeling in itself.
Hope this made sense.
