My Green City Life

1.6 gallons, baby!

You may remember that our toilet broke. The pipe that connects the tank to the bowl rusted out, and since they don’t make toilets like that anymore, we had to get a whole new replacement toilet. A month and a half later, we FINALLY have the new toilet! I am stoked (or as stoked as you can be about a new toilet anyway) not just because I am relieved that the apartment complex people and the plumber finally got their acts together enough to actually install our new toilet. I am also stoked because this new toilet only uses 1.6 gallons per flush! Compared to the ancient beast of a toilet that we had up until today, this new guy is tiny! The old one must have used at least three gallons — probably more like five — per flush. Think of the water we won’t be wasting with each flush now! Whew, it feels good to be green in the city!

Your old one was 5 gal at least! Yay for new toilets. I’m happy for you. I don’t know how much mine uses, but it’s weird, and I think it uses a lot. Booo.
