The EPA has some wonderful ideas. They also seem to have some crackpot ideas, too.

The City of San Francisco, is/was an early adopter of the EPA's WaterSense toilets. The City financed the installation of about 16,000 of these devices. They don't have sufficient flow of water through the sewer system to flush the waste. There are approximately 300,000 residences in San Francisco. Now,(no pun intended) there is a stink in San Francisco.

Saving water is a great idea. Ruining one's home isn't.

By trade I'm a writer of cookbooks and food articles for magazines. I say this as I don't own stock in a business related to water, plumbing fixtures, construction, architecture ... I'm trying to say I don't have a financial interest in what I write about at:


There I have tried to chronicle the development of how these low water use toilets came into existence and the consequences of violating the laws of physics, because politicians think that's a wise idea.
