Idea Description

We've had tankless water heaters available for many years, now. They heat the water instantly, on an as-needed basis. There's no sensible reason why more homes don't have them. Maybe we need an ordinance requiring new homes to install these instead of the old fashioned big-tank water-heaters, and to encourage people to replace their old water heaters with the tankless kind.

Idea Description

I now collect that water and feed it to my plants. While it doesn't save all of it, at least it's a start.
