Whitman Lam asked:

Water conservation is very important here in California. So, to help the environment, and save water for future use…. I have decided to give up peeing into a toilet.
The next time I feel the urge to go, I will simply open my zipper, and do it on the front lawn when nobody’s watching.

This way, I can save water, by not having to flush the toilet (3 gallons) and I can put nitrogen back into the soil.
Is this good for the environment ?

What do you guys think ?

Peeing on your lawn actually kills your grass.
Dog or Human Urine is actually bad for your grass

What you should honestly do is take every advantage you can to water your grass on such days they let you water ur grass.

Another option is to beg Mother Nature for RAIN!

What’s wrong with peeing in the toilet and not flushing it, if it’s only pee I don’t see what the problem is. But yeah whatever floats your boat, go for it. I’m sure the neighbors will enjoy the view. lol

soil conservation

Well, you could do that if you want to have brown patches on your lawn, and risk getting arrested for indecent exposure.

Or if you have a sink in your house that you never use (like the utility sink that some people have in their basement), you can pee in there. Just keep a spray bottle of disinfectant nearby so you can spray the sink after you finish.

Another possibility is you could pee in a bottle, and dump it down the storm drain when no one is looking. But then you would have to have bottles of pee laying around. So on second thought, DONT do that if you ever want to have friends. LOL!!

Well, I guess that’s one way to save water…
But, if you really want to save, consider this…
One huge loss of water in a home is the water that goes down the drain because it is the wrong temperature. Waiting for the water to get warm at the tap or shower head costs a family of 4 about 12,000 gallons of wasted H2o annually *as determined by GAMA (Gas Appliance Manufactures Association) – waiting for hot water to reach their faucet!

One very effective way of saving cool water from going down the drain is to introduce a circulating pump into the water system. By installing a circulation system, the water from the ‘hot’ side of the system that has cooled, is sent to the ‘cold’ water line and goes back to the hot water tank for re-warming. This not only saves water, but the energy costs heating the water.

The best circulation system on the market that I’ve seen is available at It is the only circulating pump that doesn’t need electricity to run. It can be installed anywhere in the water system, and save hundreds if not thousands of gallons of water, and as an added bonus will help prevent pipes from bursting due to water pipes freezing.
