If its Yellow let it Mellow
I don’t know if you have all heard the saying if its yellow let it mellow, if its brown flush it down but the is a bit to much for me and I don’t think my family would be impressed so instead I have gone for the less controversial solution.
I searched about online to find out how I could lower the amont of water that was used in each toilet flush and there was lots of DIY type websites explaining how to adjust the float in your syston but I decided that was to much hard work. So instead I followed the advice of a water saving website which advised to put a bottle of water in your syston instead.
I used a normal fizzy drinks bottle, one of the 500ml ones and when the lid is sealed tight and there are no air bubbles in the bottle it sits nicely in the syston and dosen’t seem the affect how anything works.
I advise letting whoever is in charge of DIY/home maintenance know what you are upto just incase but so far my toilet seems fine!
Some quick maths I did shows how much of a difference it could really make, with each flush I save 500ml of water and lets say I flush the toilet 4 times a day (could be more with the number of cups of tea I drink but I’m keeping the maths simple.) so thats 2L a day. Over a year I save 730L of water, that is amazing, but its not just me saving that much water everyone else in my house is to without even realising it!
Thanks for all the recent likes, reblogs and follows guys, keep up the good work!
