(058) Put A Brick In The Upper Deck Of Your Toilet

If you’re familiar with the anatomy of a toilet, then I’m sure you’re aware of that water in the upper deck. It’s a vital part of how the toilet drains and refills the water in the bowl. But it really doesn’t need as much water as you might think.

If you’re looking to save some money on your utility bill, try putting a brick in the upper deck of your toilet. You’ll save a bricks worth of water every time you flush. This might not seem like a lot at first, but with multiple flushes per day, this can actually add up to a few hundreds dollars at the end of the year. Plus you’re wasting less water, so it’s a win win.
