Stupid libtards, instead of just flushing 1.6 gals. of water per use, I now have to flush 2.0 gals. of water per use because the toilet will clog if I don’t flush in “stages”.

What a PITA.

I’ve looked at those toilets that “claim” they won’t clog, but I’m not willing to drop $300+ and the labor to find out if the “claims” are true.

30 years ago a sewage treatment expert clearly stated:

It takes a certain amount of water to get the “goldfish” to the pond, and you can’t make it up with a little preasure at the front end.

I’m surprised they are using clorine to eliminate the smell since years ago they wanted to BAN chlorine.

Anything that Libtards touch creates a cascading train of “unintented consequences” that any other layman could easily fortell...

This makes complete and total sense to the most rational and intelligent mind.

If cutting the water available to the bare minimum, to move the waste from the bowl to the septic line - what happens if there isn’t enough in the line to make the waste flow?

Aren’t you saving pennies at the household level, only to spend thousands of dollars at the municipal level?

Libtards, presenting unproven solutions to questions no one has asked.

The left-wing greenies seem to be establishing a long track record of supporting causes that are bad for both mankind and the earth. From the banning of DDT causing the death of millions of babies to the Shuttle disaster caused by inferior greenie solutions to the increase in mining to support greenie cars that destroy thousands of acres to light bulbs with hazardous mercury in them piling up in landfills , the list goes on and on.

It is time to start confronting these greenie leftists with the question:

Why do greenies hate mankind and hate the earth?

At work they installed some “waterless” urinals to save water. They were OK for maybe a year but now the men’s room constantly smells like urine.

Considering the gay population in SF, the diameter of the turds also plays a role.

I have no problem with “selective fire” toilets that allow a 1 gallon flush or a full 1.6 gallon flush.

But these “restricted magazine” are full of crap - literally!

That’s the most eloquent way of phrasing this that I have heard.

LOL! You’re right! They did that at my previous work location to “Go Green”.

Man, those things are awful!

They require a lot of “maintenance” to keep them from smelling like a port-a-potty.

I just got another email at work about being green from Management. I cannot stand these warped morons who have no idea about anything but the Marxism they are espousing via Envioronmentalism.

We have a septic system and when we flush we have to fill a plastic coffee jug with water and pour it in as we flush or it will clog. PITA is right. We dread friends using the bathroom. You gonna ask them to flush a jug of water too?

"$14 million, three-year supply of highly concentrated sodium hypochlorite - better known as bleach Read more: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2011/02/27/BAVP1HUSUD.DTL#ixzz1FHK4ZOSo"

How brilliant. Use MORE bleach, which kills the natural enzymatic action to break down sludge, in order to - oh yeah, brilliant.

And would YOU drink their recycled water?

If you drink bottled water whose 'source' is not "SPRING WATER" - you likely are.

The expensive, fancy label waters are TAP WATER from the big cities like LA, Denver, Jacksonville....

Bottled water - a scam equal to gloBull warming.

Low-Flow Toilets Cause Environmental Problem

Yeah, especially in people's bathrooms.
Around here we solve the problem by flushing the toilet three times.

I hear ya!

I can imagine trying to come up with a “flushing procedure” for the guests.

It’s awkward to say the least.
