One of our very successful green projects <
“>rainwater toilet is still going strong.
We wanted a low cost, low impact way to avoid using the normal water supply to flush the toilet. The reason being that all european domestic water is drinkable. It seems wrong to use this in the loo.
Given that we had a balcony and a downstairs toilet on an outside wall the process was straightforward. Its still possible to use the mains in time of drought or frost and the 160litre water butt is now keeping that toilet running the majority if the time. The project cost about 50 euros and gas been working since November 2012.
