Is rainwater capture legal in our area?
Erica Kudyba, Water Planning & Stewardship

Hi Susan, great question! Rainwater is legal in the Bay Area. There are even rebates for installing them if you live in certain areas: https://scvwd.dropletportal.com/rainwater-capture-rebate-details

How does switching from tp to a bidet impact toilet water use?
Erica Kudyba, Water Planning & Stewardship
44:51
Hi Rachel, great question! Depending on the type of bidet, it will use approximately the same amount of water to wash as it would to wash your hands. It would slightly increase the toilet’s water use.

I should also specify that this would be for a bidet toilet attachment where a flush is still needed.

Should you use water displacement in older toilets tanks? Can’t replace fixtures if one is in a rental. Remember when people would put a brick in the tank?
