      When we put out a rain barrel, it attracted peacocks that left shi... filth all over our yard, kept us up all night with loud yalking, and jumped on the roofing causing roof repair! I rather bath in Evian than ever get a rain barrel again!

      Same thing as putting a brick in the toilet tank. You put it in there to raise the water level with out actually having as much water.

      Orange, when you float a water bottle in your toilet tank, it reduces the amount of water needed to flush. We have a "modern" toilet that already has low something-or-other which requires us to occasionally fill a large cup of water to help flush......ah-h-h-h-h-h, larger loads?
