Don’t Drink That! A Water Saving Big Q Tip
It’s time for your daily Big Q Tip; For some odd reason I’m in the mood to talk about water, but first legal. Big Q speaks for himself, and not necessarily this station and/or it’s advertisers. I’ve been accused of having “toilet humor”. Let’s discuss that shall we. When you’re a kid the sound of a toilet flushing is funny. Those of you who are old enough to remember “All in the Family” remember laughing every time Archie flushed. But when you get older, and have to pay the water bill, the sound of a toilet flushing is the sound of money going down the toilet…literally. Water doesn’t grow on trees people. The average toilet uses three to seven gallons per flush. Back in the day you might have heard about people sticking bricks in the tank to save on water. Old people die, so do their ideas, but their concepts live on. Putting a little sand/and or dirt in a water bottle and submersing it in the tank will displace enough water to save half a gallon to a gallon each use. For those of you who like math (freaks)…up to about 10 gallons a day in a typical home. Sure a brick would still work, but a brick might break down after time and that could break you’re toilet. No one wants a broken toilet, not even Eunuchs. So the Big Q Tip of the Day to save a little water…then next you’re in the bath room parting your hair, part the toilet tank with some sand and water in a bottle. You could also hold off on a flush until someone drops a deuce. That’s up to you and your gag reflex.
