    Cinn Boondockers:
    December 27, 2019Let's help out the new boondockers in this group. What are your best water conservation tips? I keep a spray bottle of soapy water by the sink and "pre-soak" all dishes, utensils, pans, etc. before washing. That really saves on a lot of wash water.

      Suzan and Art December 27, 2019 I use the soapy rinse water from dishes to flush the toilet after turning the water to the toilet off.

      Shaerona December 27, 2019 I spray then wipe my lightly soiled utensils, cups, plates with a vinegar water mix: 2/3 vinegar to 1/2 water. Works great!

        Buddy and Cathy March 23, 2020 How do you get 4 3rds in a container? I'll try but I think it will be running over. *-)

      Beans and I on the Loose December 27, 2019 I removed the toilet and installed a C-head composting toilet. Huge saving on water consumption not to mention no more visits to the dreaded RV dump station.

        Bchguy December 27, 2019 WOW never head of that kind of toilet for an RV  ?  So what do you do with your grey water  ???
      • Cinn
        AZRickey December 27, 2019 I I admit I don't understand a lot about composting toilets, but I understand about the solid waste, but what about the liquid waste? Doesn't the liquid waste go into the black tank and doesn't it needs to be don't dumpe?
      • Cinn
        Mike and Lesia's Odyssey December 28, 2019 On ours, the liquid goes into a bottle that has to be dumped. If I ever get around to it, I will install a pipe to the black tank. Right now the black tank is just sitting there, but we can use it if the gray tanks get full. The gray tanks still have to b...  more

      toomanyhobbies December 27, 2019 Oxygenics style shower head and taking showers where you get wet, turn off water, soap up, and then rinse off are two of my biggest water savers.

        Joe D December 27, 2019 I'm thinking about getting the oxygenics shower head, seen them in Walmart and was wondering how the worked.
      • Cinn
        Cinn December 27, 2019 Oxygenics shower head works great. Lots of pressure and a few choices of settings.

      Mike and Lesia's Odyssey December 27, 2019 We went with a composting toilet. A lot of water goes down the drain with a flushing toilet.
    • Cinn
      BB&LAB December 27, 2019 We mix a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water in a spray bottle for dish cleaning. Besides saving a lot of water, vinegar is a disinfectant.
    • Cinn
      pymmint December 27, 2019 I would love to get a composting toilet, but it will probably have to be next year !  But back to the question, since I don’t “use” as much water for the toilet / black tank, I dump part of my dish water, maybe once a week down the toilet, actually I...  more

        Bchguy December 28, 2019 Interesting how do you capture your shower water to use in your toilet ?
    • Cinn
      John And Debbie Maxson December 28, 2019 Use a cup of water when brushing teeth and rinsing brush. Save water in container while waiting for it to get hot. Yes oxygenics shower head wet, soap,rinse.
    • Cinn
      pymmint December 29, 2019 Bchguy, I have a dish pan that I use for running the water in the shower until the hot starts coming out, then I rinse all over, including my hair if it’s “wash” day 🤪, use the water in The dish pan to soap up and mostly rinse off, then as I get the shamp...  more

      Cinn December 30, 2019 Bchguy  - While waiting for hot water, I use a big "Simply Lemonade" bottle (has a nice sturdy handle) to capture the cold shower water, but a milk jug or big water jug will do. Then use the water in the jug for various purposes. Why let fresh water ...  more

        Koch-a-nuts July 8, 2020 Good question! Were lucky here because we are on our sons newly aquired 1 acres. The property has a septic tank thankfully. The grey water is used for the garden Tanys put in. This is all temporary since we are leaving in August. The k...  more
