David Gilet and I are on the same page when it comes to preventing clean water from gurgling down the drain. Difference is David keeps a bucket by his hot water tap to catch the cold before it turns hot, while I keep a nice little jug on the counter and a watering can nearby. Saved water goes onto potted plants or into the toilet cistern. It’s tragic that potable water is used to flush the toilet. It’s tragic that potable water is used to flush the toilet, but we do our best.
Downstairs in the laundry where the second toilet resides, the grey water goes into the toilet cistern (not the soapy, the rinse water, as I have a septic system – the soapy ends up on the trees). Every little bit helps.
