Did you know you could save water and money by not flushing the toilet after a wee?
I’ve actually started doing that…I’ve put some disinfectant in the toilet bowl.
Would you do it?
Of course after a poo I would flush it…I wonder how much I could save…?
Yes they do that in countries where water is precious .
If it’s yellow
let it mellow
If it’s brown flush it down .
That’s what I’m going to be doing ,Muddy!.
There’s just me at home …I’m out a lot .
I think cost of disinfectant might be more than the price of the water saved ?
I only put the disinfectant in the once, I don’t put it in every time I have a wee.
I think I flush my toilet at least 8 times a day,( I drink a lot) plus I’m home alone…it will be interesting to see how much my water bill will be…
I just wish I’d thought of doing it sooner.
My shower runs 6ltrs of cold water before it becomes warm enough to step into so I’ve bought a bucket which sits in the bath and I run the water into the bucket then move it over and step in . I’ve watered the pot plants in the heat and now am using to flush the toilet . It’s too expensive to have the pipes changed in the house from boiler in kitchen to bathroom upstairs.
It is quite funny seeing Britain discussing water savings. Most toilets here have two buttons, a half flush and full flush.
The poem Muddy quotes was used during the Millennium drought when Dam levels got down to 25%.
Sydney Water also issued egg timers for timing a shower. I still have mine in the bathroom, it has come in handy when my grandkids visit otherwise they would empty my 250L hot water tank when they were younger.
The standing and additional charges on our water bills are always higher than the water actually used. So I think the water itself is quite cheap.
I do wash up in a bowl and use for watering the garden though.
We have been doing that for quite a few years,it started when flushing was waking up the family.
And we have carried it on since.
We are getting a water butt. That will save water.
Are we talking Dettol or Zoflora?
