I finally got a new toilet! Home Depot had a 1.0 GPF on sale for $98. The nice thing about this toilet is that it is a plain old fashion gravity toilet. It has fewer things to go wrong and it is very quite.

It has been working great for about a month now. Only one time have I had to use the plunger. That is good because the old one was once or twice a week. I did receive my latest water bill. We only used 2050 Gallons. The pervious month was 2700 gallons. Remember, this also involves the new low flow shower head too.  (That is most of the reduction.) But I figure the new toilet saves at least 10 gallons a day. FWIW, my bill was still $39.56. We have a high fixed charge now. 😦
