Lets do a little math

The average user who flushes a toilet, uses about 3 gallons (11 litres) per flush.

Assuming that person uses his/her toilet at home 3 times a day that equals 33 litres.
If there are 5 people in that house,
the house would consume

165 L of water per day.

Now at worse case scenario, the people in that house are home 365 days a year,
the house would consume

60225 L water /year

Forget 1 household.

There are more than 20 million Malaysians in this country. Not including illegal workers.

The average household can do their part in saving water, by catching water in buckets when it rains. Rainwater isnt particularly clean, but who needs clean water just to flush the loo?
