Low Flow Toilets Meet the Law of Unintended Consequences … the Result, IT STINKS

 

Once again we are presented with the law of liberal unintended consequences …

From the SF Chronicle, .liberal, do good policies failed to take into account all of the ramifications of low flow toilets. The end result is … IT STINKS. However, as correctly stated at the Pirate Cove, ”Remember, in Liberal World, it is all about intentions, not outcomes.”

The city has already spent $100 million over the past five years to upgrade its sewer system and sewage plants, in part to combat the odor problem.

Now officials are stocking up on a $14 million, three-year supply of highly concentrated sodium hypochlorite – better known as bleach – to act as an odor eater and to disinfect the city’s treated water before it’s dumped into the bay. It will also be used to sanitize drinking water.

That translates into 8.5 million pounds of bleach either being poured down city drains or into the drinking water supply every year.

What a metaphor for liberal policies as the “ECO-IRONY” is cutting way back on the water flushing out the municipal excretions has caused massive sewage backups in the pipes, stinking up the city. What a novel concept. The more money they throw at the problem, the more the liberal policies stinks.

      And you have to flush 3 times as much. Some savings.

      More liberal ideas that do not use common sense or logic. I’m sure high flow toilets are just sucking the vast seas from existence if you ask Al Gore….

      The artical is somewhat right that low flush toilets are the the right solution dual flush are the right WC (water closet) to switch to.And as for the hypo it is no longer being used in70-80% of the water and sewage plants. ultra-violet lights are being used now and it was never to stop the smell it was to kill the bacteria. just FYI

      I see the problems created by low-flow toilets every day — the plumbing systems inside houses (forget the public sewers) are designed assuming a certain volume of water with each flush. The fall of most of them simply isn’t sufficient to deal with low-flow toilets, leading to clogged drain lines. Plumbers love it.
