A dual-flush toilet is a great way to save water at home because it lets you decide if you need a full or partial flush. But if you have a perfectly fine single-flush toilet, how do you save water? You can convert your toilet into a water-conserving one simply by switching out the toilet flapper. For less than $10, you can add an adjustable flapper that lets you shorten the chain. This means a conventional toilet that uses 5 to 7 gallons of water becomes a water-efficient one that uses just 2.5 gallons. This pays for itself in no time.
