Just Flush It, Please!

This one falls into the category of some things are good in theory only...

'white sanitary ware and tissues' by nuttaki, found at free digital

To the inventor of the water saving toilet (apparently your name is Bruce Thompson and you hail from Austrailia): 
 While I can certainly appreciate a desire to save water in a place such as California is with its water woes, I cannot understand taking a device that actually works and turning it into a disgusting, dirty and non-functioning device.
I am not being overly dramatic here. I cannot tell you the number of times that I have come into the bathroom to find a 'half-flushed' toilet that is stinking to the high heavens and looks like something that my dog chucked up after eating something that only a dog would find tasty.
 Seriously, a toilet that doesn't have much more than a few cups of water in it and then you offer up the option of a half flush?!  And it never occurred to anyone that this could be just plain gross?!  Not to mention how much extra water actually gets used when the ineviatable additional flushes happen to make that sad dry toilet try to take on the job it was supposed to do in the first place.  That is before it was robbed of neccessary water to do said job.
 Please, I beg of you sir, try again.  There has to be a better way.

***Thank goodness we left these nasty toilets behind in the apartment in favor of 'normal' ones in the new rental.  Have YOU encountered these water saving toilets?  What did you think?


  1. I have not seen this... I do believe I would remember. Yuck.

  2. I have not used such a toilet, but it sounds disgusting!

  3. As an old poker player, I state with confidence that a half-flush stinks.

  4. My toilets are old fashion, like everything I own. LOL My girlfriend, Marilyn, said she was going shopping for an energy saving toilet for her daughter's house. I asked, "What, an out house?" I honestly had never heard of an energy saving toilet.

  5. Yuck! My mom has a low-flow toilet that's supposed to save water. It flushes--it just takes a ridiculous amount of time to recover between flushes. So you'd better get everything flushed the first time through!

  6. I hate those new toilets and I wish there was some way they could measure the amount of water they really use. I'm sure there is a lot of waste. Give me the old fashioned full tank flush!
