Skip to comments.Trump complains low-flow toilets are flush with problems

...Trump said Friday that his administration is looking into relaxing water-saving regulations for toilets, sinks and showers, saying consumers end up using even more water by flushing multiple times and trying to get clean with low water streams.
People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times as opposed to once. They end up using more water,'' Trump said while talking with business owners about what he said are common sense'' steps to end overregulation. "The EPA is looking at that very strongly at my suggestion.''

This was a shockingly stupid and trivial issue for FedGov to address. The old toilets flushed better, and toilets are a trivial portion of our total water usage. Leftists virtue signal with silly rules like this, but their demands don’t improve anything real.
I lost all the incandescent bulbs, which I had bought in panic, in a tragic boating accident.
Low flow toilets are just more garbage foisted upon us by the nitwits in California that wanted 40 million people living in a desert. The whole country now has to put up with their water saving BS. I live in Mississippi, I can stomp my heel into the ground and have fresh water, the last thing I need to worry about is conserving water. Now I cant buy a toilet that will flush a man sized dump because a bunch of lefties want to live in a place that isnt capable of supporting their population.
We have these type of toilets in our home here in Germany. They work just fine, unless of course, you can’t find the right lever to push in the dark when you have to go in the middle of the night. Otherwise...
Trump is so right on this
Please toss these stupid regs
These low water toilets dont flush man sized bowel movements nor do they clean the bowl
You have to multi flush and scrub
Ditto HE washing machines and dishwashers
Neither clean good nor rinse worth a crap and you have to run rinse cycle 2-3 times
My Bosch sits in my basement and we bought an old Speed Queen which is to die for
My low-flow toilet uses half the water per flush. I just need to flush it three or four times.
Its all good if youre Sheryl Crow who must have one helluva tight neat brown winkie
She claimed she only needed one sheet of eco toilet paper to wipe her cute little tush
Usually girls are inherently cleaner there but one sheet....no way
Im about a ten percent of the roll man and prefer POMs or Scott regular
Solid mans TP
Id prefer a man bidet to be honest...
A man must ...simply must clean up his tailpipe for his girl not to be offended if shes in the neighborhood
Sheryl give me a call honey..lol....
Slapping myself....Im way too old for acrobatics and contortions
I actually did have a three year relationship with Sheryls cousin from Marmaduke Arkansas long ago who was prettier than her in my opinion
Awhile back, I had to replace an old style toilet that worked well, but had a crack in it(no pun intended)& was leaking. Didn’t want one of the new style low-capacity toilets, but had no choice. The ones I had seen were absolutely terrible. However, the plumber put in an American Standard model that works very well. Nothing at all like the early versions I had seen.
Once in Ukraine I flushed an old Soviet toilet.
How did you like the squat toilets in Ukraine? They can be pretty nasty in village bus stations and the like.
I HATE those sissy flushes.
Those ‘flushable wipes” should NEVER be flushed. They DO NOT breakdown in municipal sewer water systems & treatment plants. They clog up all filters involved.
IF you live on a septic system:
1. NEVER use bleach—it kills the septic system
2. Never use “Cottonelle” or similar toilet tissue. The recycled COTTON fibers DO NOT break down in the septic system....You will hasten a complete new system after your current one fails.
3. IF you live on a septic system, USE Rid-X or Bio-Clean at least once a month in all your drains. I hve lived on septic systems 44 + years of my 80 years & I prefer Bio-Clean. It is more effective & costs less in the long tun.
4. Studies show that less than 50% of drug residue excreted -both liquid & solid— by users of illegal drugs re filtered & eliminated from water being process thru water treatment plants. SOOOO-—the water you use can easily have repeated additions of illegal drugs.
5. Prescription drugs also re a problem in water treatment systems, as they also cannot be filtered out.
All of this is a number of dirty little secrets that municipalities don’t want the public to know.
I live on a septic system & I won’t change. I will continue to move more & more rural to avoid having MY LIVESTOCK exposed to contaminated water. Just what I need-—a 1000# horse betting some residue PCP or Meth into it’s system & going berserk.
the lefties will go nuts.
It’s about time.
You missed my point, and you obviously missed the news at the time too. It was touted as an armed invasion and takeover, 1000's killed. The populace there was previous RUSSIAN, the wanted nothing to do with Crimea an old rival and they VOTED to return to Russia (from whence they had come). My point was about the veracity of the news report we were fed, your snarky reply doesn't offer much for further conversation.
“We should only use one square of toilet paper, according to Sheryl Crow.”
spare a square
First, water is only scarce when you are trying to unbalance the carrying capacity of a habitat by over distribution of a population. 3/4th’s of our planet is covered in the stuff.
Second, Trump knows which buttons to push to send the left’s core into a frothing madness. He is assuring that the left will be running their campaigns on Climate and guns. This should be worth more than 15% in 2020.
Must be having trouble flushing all the Washington Bullschiff down the drain.
