    does anyone keep there waste water and use it for anything else?  just getting ideas to hopefully not have to waste so much.  conserve as much as possible.

    I read something about this on RC and there are a lot of good ideas. Alot of ppl use it to water plants, wash cars, bathe pets, even ppl said they fill their wash machines with it, and there were a crap load of other things. Sounds silly but you are right, with as much water as we just dump down the drain, its good to see ppl being "green" and wanting to conserve and recycle.

    We used to run our waste line to the washing machine but after we had our kid the wife decided she didn't like the idea because of the newborns sensitive skin. I'm thinking it's probably time to hook it back up, especially now we are doing more laundry. Running it to the toilet is a great idea as well. It is sort of crazy how much water we waste using RODI units.
