Here in sunny southern California, as in many other areas of the country, we’re experiencing a drought, and it seems like all we hear about is water conservation. We were forced to switch out our high-powered behemoth of a toilet for a more efficient low-flow model, but what if you’re not satisfied with that level of water conservation — what do you do? You pick up a couple of oddly named Toilet Tummies.
Invented 20 years ago, the Toilet Tummy works on the principle of displacement. Just fill the bag with water and hang it on the inside of the tank, and this simple device will save you 80 to 160 ounces of water per flush.
One site estimates that in a family of four the Toilet Tummy’ll pay for itself in three and a half weeks, and that’s no surprise seeing as it only costs about $4. Saving the environment is cool, but it’s nice to save some dough along the way.
