    water really isn't THAT precious, it all recirculates. The only the only hard part is getting it into filtered tap water, so as long as you pay the water companies, there is really no harm being done.

    Not many people live below sea level, and not many people live under ground. Sooo, to start with, the water you use is pumped into your house somehow. That uses energy. Also, every drop of it is chemically treated. That uses energy. We also can't survive without it. Exactly HOW non-precious is water,exactly? Nice instructable. You're a male with two functional legs, I'd recommend urinating in the sink to avoid wasting toilet water. I started doing that a little while ago, way more convenient.

    Yes it all reciculates but how long does it take? were does it circulate to? What process goes into making it clean water again? Why give money to the water people if you don't have to? Why waste when you can conserve. Why do I always see the RIAA getting down on conservation?

    theRIAA says: "... so long as you pay the water companies..."

    Therein lies the problem and the reason why it is called wasting water.
