So until the aquapolypse it’s best to learn how to save money on water sooner rather than later. DIY Guy, a syndicated Popular Mechanics column that ran in the San Francisco Chronicle, has 15 tips to help you lower your water bill.
One of them is to limit flushing:
Don’t use the toilet as a trash can. Dispose of tissues, cotton swabs and dental floss in the trash — you’ll save water and also prevent clogs. Consider replacing toilets with dual-flush models, which use less water depending on the contents being disposed. Another option is the Aquanotion, which allows you to retrofit your current toilet with a dual-flush system.
Or just obey the old nursery rhyme, “If it’s brown, flush it down. If it’s pee, let it be.”
