6. You are most certainly wrong about toilets NEVER needing
plungers before 1994. Toilets have always needed plunging when someone uses them improperly. I have heard that the first crop of low flows had problems. I never witnessed any. I never saw one toilet that need 4 or 5 flushes, as was parodied regularly on tv. The only thing I notice is that the toilets need cleaning more often. It is certainly more sanitary to CLEAN YOUR TOILET A LITTLE MORE OFTEN. I don't understand the resistance to saving water. Can you imagine the amount that has been saved in the last 15 years? So, you are blaming the careless, improper use of a toilet by some low class slob on the government?
