Trump orders toilet review

Trump orders toilet review

President Trump has said he wants a nationwide review of water efficiency standards. ’People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times as opposed to once. They end up using more water’, Trump said adding that he has directed the Environmental Protection Agency to look at the issue. Trump was speaking at the White House round-table on small business and red tape reduction.

Several years ago the tree-huggers got a regulation passed requiring all federal toilets use lower volume of water per flush (6 liters). Ever since this change there has been complaints from some about how many more flushes are required. Either Trump is trolling again or he is not. But either way it's good to review the regulation.

Wtf this was probably a joke and all these turds became upset about this. TDS is very real, Trump makes one comment about a peripheral matter and vast hordes of nerds and idiots get bent out of shape.

Yup, the 'new' toilets suck even tho the tech has improved a lot. Hate the damn plunger lots of people keep next to the toilet now cause they need it so often.

They are trying to flush Trumpy's phone call transcripts and I can only imagine how many pages he waffles on for.

Trump doesn’t care about clean water. A potential rollback of water use regulations would fit the administration’s continued efforts at deregulating the EPA. The New York Times has identified 53 separate rules that have completed the rollback process at the agency, and 32 more that are still in the works. The president has been a vocal skeptic of climate change since the earliest days of his candidacy for president, but nonetheless campaigned to “to promote clean air and water,” in 2016. He has continued campaigning on that point, and has told audiences thanks to his policies, “We have among the cleanest and sharpest — crystal clean, you’ve heard me say, I want crystal clean — air and water anywhere on Earth.” The quality of air and water in the US is mixed, with lead contamination and air pollution of increasing concern to scientists. Trump, however, has done little to address these issues, and began unraveling the environmental protections put in place by his predecessors almost immediately after assuming office, as Vox’s Matthew Yglesias has explained.

I think Portland is going to be using the most water since all government buildings there are having the urinals removed in place of stalls. That's wasteful.

Here is an idea. Next to ever public toilet, a water collector must be built. if the collector is big enough this would more than cater for toilet flushes. Rain water may not be adequate for drinking until it has been tested and purified, but for flushing a toilet it will absolutely suffice. You can plumb in a supply to top this water up if the tank drops below a certain level, but if the tank is big enough, it should not require a top up. imagine how much water could be saved state wide.
