Ya know there are low-flow toilets with TWO buttons!

One for #1, the other for 'bulkier' needs.
Sounds like a solution!

As far as water goes, we used to be a two shower maximum household. Whenever guests were around we'd make them use the hose outside.

We recently converted to gas and an on-demand hot water system. You turn on the tap, the hot starts flowing. You NEVER run out(unless of course you have a power outage) and there is no tank! The entire thing is about 2' X 1' X 1'. Also great if you're putting in a basement suite and need the extra space.

Low flow sucks. Give me a nice massaging shower and a tsunami when I flush

I spent 9 1/2 years going out to sea on Coast Guard ships...Let me just say that low flow VACUUM toilets really SUCK. They are so bad that they put a sawed off broom stick next to them for you to "break up" your waste. Yummy!

So you wanna talk shit doo yah
Well as a builder of fine homes
We like to install only one brand of toilet
From the least expensive in their line to the most expensive.
TOTO toilets can take a 2" handball and suck it down every time.
We even install them as construction toilets and have all the workmen and workwomen on a 13,000 square foot house that takes 3 years, use them. And never a clog.
So remember Aunty Em, when you crap on TOTO
your not in Kansas any more?
