I like the simple low cost projects that can have a big impact over time. This minor change to the toilets of your home can; over time, save not only on the water you use but on the cost of using it. Have a look at this and think about your home and what impact it could have.

Cheapie kits claim to turn your toilet into a water-saving dual-flush commode. How do they fare?
Dual-flush toilets – those two-button commodes that let you choose a flush volume suitable for liquids or solids – are a great way to save water. They’ll save up to 20 gallons a day by some estimates compared with traditional toilets. But they sell for upwards of $300.
We’re curious about the $20 to $30 retrofit DIY option available at home improvement stores or online: the dual-flush converter, which can be installed on most household toilets.
The gizmo replaces your side lever with a two-button fixture. And the converter kits include the parts you need to turn your ordinary commode into a high-efficiency toilet (http://www.houselogic.com/home-advice/saving-water/saving-water-with-high-efficiency-toilet/).
Installation (http://doodlebugs.hubpages.com/hub/How-To-Install-a-Dual-Flush-Retrofit-Kit-On-Your-Toilet) takes around 20 minutes.
Would you install a dual-flush converter? If you’ve installed one, how’s it doing its job?
