Did you know that toilets use more water in an average month than anything else in your home?
How many times does your family flush per day?
Do you have a water conserving type of toilet or a traditional toilet?

really???

Probably about 8, but we're not home all day. More on the weekends when we are home.

Do you have a water conserving type of toilet or a traditional toilet? Well we had a water saver, but it kept causing up problems, so he switched the flapper to be a regular one.

We have not updated the plumbing here, so we are currently using standard flush toilets. I don't have any clue how many times a day it gets flushed, but I can only imagine it's some outrageously high number. It's on the list of things to change for sure.

How many times does your family flush per day? No clue, but since I am here all day I would have to guess maybe 10.

Do you have a water conserving type of toilet or a traditional toilet? We have a traditional pink toilet...yup, it is pink. DH and in the middle of a remodel and the pink toilet will be going.

We have water conserving type of toilets. I'm not sure how many times we flush per day. I'm guessing 20-25 times per day. Sometimes I will wait a couple times before flushing.

Did you know that toilets use more water in an average month than anything else in your home? Yes, and it irritates the heck out of me... ours is old and uses four gallons per flush.
How many times does your family flush per day? I don't even want to think about it... We have an unofficial policy "yellow is mellow but brown goes down". Still, between the seven of us, I would guess we probably flush around 20 times per day.
Do you have a water conserving type of toilet or a traditional toilet? Already mentioned we have an old one. If we ever have to replace it I will insist on a conserving flush toilet. I would prefer to "install" a composting toilet, but I haven't gotten DH on board with that one yet.
