Creating an automated grey water and hands-free faucet system for $40

50 shades of grey… water.

The average American flushes a toilet in their home five and a half times each day, with the typical toilet putting down around two to five gallons of water with every push of the lever. That means, each person flushes away just about 25 gallons of water on their own, equating to 4.8 billion gallons as a whole daily. Given that more than 57% of the country, and 99% of both California and Nevada, is enduring drought conditions, reducing the amount of water that a toilet wastes can go a long way in conserving that good ol’ H2O.
