Decades ago, as a hip on-the-town young adult and before I or most people had even heard of Jeff Foxworthy (sp), I kindly told my parents that they were rednecks. They actually had to have me define the term; that's how redneck they were. Please. I thought it was important they be brought up to speed, lest they continue their redneck ways, unchecked by necessary awareness.johnny123 wrote:Sounds pretty redneck to me.
Do all the people in your town have the same DNA. LOL
Now... you have hurt me....lol I lived in Texas for a bit, and here in Michigan I happen to be a bubba, and I use a right proper outhouse.....Marlingardener wrote:Gary honey, here in Texas there would be some bubba that would USE that toilet, and probably forget to flush.
There are innovative solutions to problems, but this may not be one of them!
Not being argumentative but this term has completely different connotations up here. It means people who are extremely conservative. The term literally means outdoors people--farmers, cowboys, and the like--with their necks red from long days in the sun. Yes, they might be lacking in sophistication, though that is by no means a given, but many are well-educated and quite astute politically. Thought I should set the record straight, given my post about my parents and myselfcynthia_h wrote: . . . post using demeaning terminology about people who are perceived by some to be "less" sophisticated / educated / politically astute than those who use said demeaning term.
You can buy replacement parts for toilets. Buy the flusher parts and mount them in the bottom of a 55 gallon barrel. Attach a float to the flapper valve with about 3 ft of chain. Place the barrel under your house gutter down spout. When the rain fills the barrel and the water gets about 2" from the top the float pulls open the flapper and the barrel flushes like a toilet. Your garden gets 55 gallons of irregation each time it flushes.donworden wrote:To be honest, I disremember the site I saw it on, I will have to search for the link again, but I did read an article on how a toilet tank and innards were converted to be used as a water source for hydroponics. Somehow they had made it so a timer went off, flusher used, water added, tank refilled, and cycled all over. If I remember right, the tank was somehow attached to a 55 gallon drum. I will research it again, and post the link.
Just put it in your garden and plant a tomato in it.Gary350 wrote:I replaced our old bathroom toilet with a new moden elongated low water volume toilet. The old toilet is still go so I am thinking I might use it to water plants. If I run a section of PVC pipe from the toilet down a row with a 1/4" hole at each plant all I need to do is flush the toilet and all the plants will get watered. I will need to do some math to make sure the water volume in the PVC pipe is equal to the water volume in the toilet tank so it all flushes down. With holes on the bottom side of the PVC pipe the water should rush in pushing out all the air then it will take about 1 minute for all the water to drain out and water all the plants. I need to calculate how much water each plant needs to determine he length and diameter of the PVC pipe. This will be a time saver for watering plants it only takes 2 seconds to flush a toilet. Then the toilet refills and waits for me to flush it tomorrow.
