I've Joined the Other Group

If you recall my earlier posts about water conservation, I firmly came down on the side of the "jiggle the handle" toilet flushing debate. I thought an unflushed toilet was something terrible, something only found in the morning when your parents are visiting.

Well, at the risk of affecting my future dating life, I'm happy to announce that I've switched sides. I'm now in the "if it's yellow, let it mellow" camp. So far, it's been no big deal. I have my own en suite, so I don't have to worry about guests or roomies. It's been relatively cool, so I don't have to worry about anything stewing, even if it is left for a workday or overnight.

Thus far, I'm saving two to three tanks of water per day, maybe more (some days), maybe less (since I was doing the jiggle thing anyway).

Do you have any experience with this? Is there a safe, eco-friendly trick to this to keep it cleaner or more sanitary? I sincerely doubt dropping a bleach tablet in the tank is the eco-friendly option I'm looking for...
