It cost us a lot. Since water now became more and more expensive we should take care ’em for more.

If you are connected to a septic system, they are often not sized to handle that flow. I was involved in a mobile home park that had a septic system with problems that was later determined to be a leaky toilet. The elderly woman living there did not hear the toilet running. A meter to her trailer indicated flows of around 900 gallons per day! The leak was fixed and a very expensive septic system repair was avoided. A typical residential system is sized at 400-500 gallons per day.

In that way you can control the amount of water you use in flushing the toilet. Especially when you pee , when you flush the toilet more water are being use. But when you just pour water from the pale or “timba” you will use a little amount of water to flush your pee.
