A quick tip for saving water and money...

Just a quick tip for saving water...

I know its been a while since I last posted... I've been incredibly busy with my latest Green Reno. I'll post pics soon of the progress.

I wanted to pass on a tip I learned recently. I've been doing a lot of research on plumbing fixtures that help us conserve water. And it's funny...the greener the toilet...the more expensive it is. It's actually kind of frustrating

So here's a way to make your own water conserving toilet... open the tank of your normal 1.6 G flush toilet. Fill a 2 liter soda bottle with water and place it in the tank. Voila...you now have reduced your water usage from 1.6G per flush to 1.0G per flush. You may have to adjust how much water you have in the 2 liter to get your flush right. But this is alot cheaper than spending $600 for a new water conserving toilet.

This is just another example of how it doesn't take money to save money...
