Check your flush: Fill a two litre bottle with water and put it in your toilet tank, count how many times your family flushes and figure your savings!

“You shall have a place outside the camp, and you shall go out to it. And you shall have a trowel with your tools, and when you sit down outside, you shall dig a hole with it” Deut 23:12-14

  • Get a low-flow toilet. Flushing is the biggest water hog in the house. Older, conventional toilets can use 5 to 7 gallons per flush, but low-flow models use as little as 1.6 gallons. Since the average person flushes five times a day, the gallons can really add up.
  •  If you can’t replace your higher volume toilet, put a plastic bottle filled with water in your toilettank to reduce the amount of water used per flush.
  • To check for a toilet leak, put dye or food coloring into the tank. If color appears in the bowl without flushing, there’s a leak that should be repaired.
  • “If it’s yellow, let it mellow.” The saying may be cliché, but it’s good advice. If you’re grossed out by the “yellow,” just put the toilet lid down.
  •  Don’t flush things down the toilet to dispose of them. Throw tissues and other bathroom waste in the garbage can, which doesn’t require gallons of water.
