How much water that is wasted in a home comes from the toilet?

    Answering that question depends on too many variables about the home, so I’ll just get into how much water you can save if you avoid flushing the toilet.
    “Toilets built before 1982 usually use between five and seven gallons of water per flush, while newer toilets are required to use no more than 1.6 gallons of water per flush.”
    Say you use the bathroom 4-6 times a day. That’s using 36 gallons at the most, or 6.4 at the least, PER PERSON. Think about how much water that is, simply so that you are spared the indignity of looking at your own waste.

    If it’s yellow, let it mellow; if it’s brown, flush it down.

    Also, pee in the shower! I once heard a comedian joke that there are 2 kinds of people in the world: those who admit to peeing in the shower and those who lie and say they don’t pee in the shower.
