Cut Down On Your Toilet's Water Usage With This Trick
There's a simple, less disgusting way to cut down on your toilet's water usage than urinating in your backyard or employing the "if it's pee, let it be; if it's brown, flush it down" maxim. If you place something heavy and non-obstructive in your tank, the object will take up volume and require your toilet to send less water to raise the level to its setting.
Water bottles filled with sand or something else that won't float will do the trick. When you're just starting out, monitor the flush from beginning to end to make sure your object isn't blocking your flushing mechanism, otherwise you may be doing more harm than good.
If you drop something into your toilet tank, be sure not to use something that will disintegrate and harm your pipes.
