Or, instead of putting rocks in your toilet's reservoir, you can simply 
adjust the trigger arm (that thingamajig with a big plastic bubble at the 
end of it) so that it terminates water refill sooner.

[Either that or leave the Christmas tree up year-round . . . Shorter walk 
to the john, you understand.]

It certainly beats putting rocks in your toilet.

your toilet tank
equal to 1/2 the volume of the tank.

flush toilets. 
I was so impressed with them I bought one for my daughter for her 
Christmas present last
year.  Made sense to me. . . . she's on a septic system where she lives 
and she's
conserving a valuable natural resource with every half-flush.  The Natural 
Abode is a
great shop with very helpful staff to answer all your questions. Check it 
out if you
haven't already.

Dept. . . they have some
great free gadgets for the homeowner who wants to save water.  The young 
lady who works
there was so nice putting together a bunch of stuff for me. . . .for my 
bathroom, kitchen
and garden. Check them out, too.

household water usage cut in half without instituting any other water

we are looking forward to what else we can do. -Tom
