Your Questions About Saving Water

Ken asks…

What is the best type of toilet for saving water but works effectively?

I am remodeling my bathroom and I am looking for some advice on toilets. What type of toilet ie (low flow, ultra low flow, dual flush, composting, and high efficiency toilet) should i get for my home. I am looking for something that works like my old toilet but saves water. Any help would be great.

admin answers:

1. Composting toilet: A composting toilet uses an aerobic processing system which breaks down the waste in the toilet. This type of toilet also uses the process of evaporation to eliminate liquid waste. The toilet also uses almost no water.{ not really suggested if you are looking for the same performance of your last toilet.}

2. Regular low flow toilet: This type of toilet uses 1.6 gallons per flush. The regular low flow toilet is the typical toilet you will see anywhere. There are two different types of flush mechanisms available for low flow toilets. The gravity flush toilet which is pretty much the standard toilet. This type of flush toilet uses water force to flush waste. It is easy to maintain, gets the job done, and parts are readily available. Finally there is the pressure assist flush toilet, which is mainly used for commercial toilets or homes with poor plumbing.
A pressure assist toilet utilizes pressurized water through the use of air force to flush the waste down the drain. The use of air makes the flush a little bit louder than the gravity assist toilet. {The regular low flow toilet is the typical toilet you will see at any big box retail store. Its good for water saving but not the best}

3. Ultra low flow toilet: The ultra low flow toilet uses only 1.28 gallons per flush. I have heard that this toilet is faulty when it comes to flushing all the waste down the drain. Installation of the ultra low toilet is the same as the regular low flow toilet. {If you are looking to save water this might be a good option}

4. Dual flush toilet: Allows the user to choose between a full flush and half flush. The dual flush toilet saves about 4,000 gallons of water more than the regular 1.6 gallon per flush toilet. They install just like a regular toilet. {This is also a very good option for saving water}

5. High efficiency toilet (HET): Is any toilet that flushes 20% less than regular 1.6 gallon per flush toilets. Dual flush toilets, ultra low flow toilets and composting toilets all qualify as high efficiency toilets.

How does turning off the lights when you leave a room save water?

How does turning off the lights when you leave a room save water?

I want a big detailed answer…..10 points to best answer!!!! Well, actually 12.
@Jaymie L. Yes it does. I just want to know how.

admin answers:

No Prob this answer is simple…

Worrying about “Things That Go Bump in the Night” is the main reason people leave lights on neednessly! That relates directly to the evaporation principle of how condensation evaporates when heat is applied, thus the eco-radiating kilowatt usage is a main source of expediting reduction in condensation, increase in evaporation which ultimated lends to negligent water loss.

SUMMARY: Ever wonder why it’s so hot in Arizona AND there’s very little rain or humidity? Heat counteracts humidity. Light produces Heat!
Therefore Electrical Lights produce heat that increases evaporation which is another name for wasting water!!!

It’s elementary My Dear Watson…
Turn off a light, save some water
Shower with a friend in the dark and accomplish both at the same time!
