Also, how can I save water in my toilet tank? 10 Ways You Can Conserve Water At Home

In this regard, how much water does a brick in the toilet save?
The brick ships flat at about nine ounces, but when you fill it with water and the hydrogel expands inside, its weight increases to four pounds. This weight is enough to displace about half a gallon of water when dropped into your toilet tank. Each brick can save approximately two gallons of water per day per person.
Does flushing toilet increase water bill?
“Older toilets can use four times more water per flush,” says John Banta, who oversees Consumer Reports' toilet tests. “New toilets use as little as 1.28 gallons per flush, so replacing an older toilet can dramatically reduce your water bill.”
