WHAT THE FLUSH!?! You put WHAT in your toilet!?!

Yes....I know, I know! I know what we all put in our toilets....
But I've got something else you need to put in your toilet today!

RANDOM FACT: Did you know that 40% of a households water supply goes to flushing toilets!?! That's more than showering, washing dishes, washing hands or laundry!

So what's a toilet flusher to do?!?

No need to resort to the "If it's yellow let it mellow"...theory either. Stagnate pee smell is not very mellow! ha ha ha

Not put a brick in your toilet tank!- DO NOT do this...the bricks will disintegrate and can cause huge plumbing issues.

You DO WANT to fill a plastic water bottle, juice bottle (whatever you have- it's a good way to re-purpose and re-use, baby!)...with some rocks, sand or gravel-
then fill the rest up with water, put the cap on and put it in the tank part of your toilet. (the big part in the back with the lid on it, that fills up with water)
You can put 1-2 plastic water bottles in the tank too!

RANDOM -what the FLUSH fact: According to studies, the average person flushes the toilet 5 times a day.

An average family of 4 can save up to 600 gallons of water per month this way!
It's a good way to SAVE money on your water bill and help out the environment.

RANDOM FACT #3: Did you know that the average hot tub or jacuzzi that seats up to 6 people holds around 350-500 gallons of water and takes an average of 2 hours to fill up with a garden hose.

RANDOM TOILET FACT #4: New "low-flush" toilet use around 1.3-1.6 gallons per flush, however older toilets, like those from the 50's use up to 8 gallons per flush!


tryin to save you dollars and water...your kandee
