How to save water in your bathroom

I always wondered why we need to use clean drinkable water to flush the toilet. Isn't there a simple way to save this (more and more) precious resource that is clean water? Apparently, there is:



Caroma, a company that focuses on designing interesting bathroom products, has developed this simple idea for reusing the water used to wash hands and teeth, to flush the toilet. And the good part is that you don't have to redesign your all bathroom to install something like this. The water supply is already there, you just need to re-route it to the sink instead of the toilet tank.

If you don’t like the idea of having a sink above the toilet, you can also opt for a “regular” Caroma Dual Flush toilet. Caroma toilets look sleek, really work and are affordable. They offer a patented dual flush technology consisting of a 0.8 Gal flush for liquid waste and a 1.6 Gal flush for solids. Caroma, an Australian company set the standard by giving the world its first successful two button dual flush system in the nineteen eighties and has since perfected the technology. Also, with a full 3.5" trapway, these toilets virtually never clog. All of Caroma’s toilets are on the list of WaterSense labeled HET’s http://www.epa.gov/watersense/pp/find_het.htm and also qualify for LEED points. Please go to http://www.caromausa.com for more detailed information or visit http://www.ecotransitions.com/howto.asp to see why they actually work better than any other US toilet.
