    1.6 gallon flush toilets, 'nuff said.

  2. It requires a bigger, more expensive meter.

    Where I live, you can get a big pipe and meter at the 3/4" cost if the house
    has a fire sprinkler system.
  3. Hi Pooh
    Most definately, one of the down sides of Spain,. My ex UK house,
    circa 1895 was built better than my current one. Remember the Barratt
    Homes jokes?

    But the lifestyle is at least 6dB better than Tescoland.

    Proportional control vlave <> pressure regulator. A proportional control
    valve tries to keep the _temperature_ constant by keeping the ratio
    (pressure) of hot and cold water constant. If someone flushes the toilet
    when you're in the shower it'll compensate for the loss of cold water by
    also cutting back the hot.

    Hello Richard,
    Why would that meter be more expensive? IMHO it can only be because of
    production quantities. In that case they could be brought in from Europe
    where meters usually have very large pipe connections. They would just
    need to be re-geared away from liters and be equipped with face plates
    in English. Or soon probably English and Spanish...

    Regards, Joerg

    " (There are cities where for every gallon put into the system, a
    shocking small fraction comes out -- like 1/2! -- the rest being lost
    to leakage.) "

    Oh, so you've been to Montreal? Don't forget to admire our potholes,
    and try to take a picture of a blue collar "worker" actually working,
    you can get money for those.

    Don't you mean 2.5 inch gold plated monster pipes and special high

    After moving to the US I was pretty amazed about the yard sprinkler
    Why not have a valve that put the yard sprinkler on hold anytime a shower is
    sensed ..?
    Could be as simple as a ir-detector in the shower -> 555 -> valve magnet.

    I work for a pump producer ( and we have lots of
    I would like an pump that manages 90 C°, is dead silent, pumps something like
    ..5 liters/min, pipe attachments for both in & out flows, and use 12V DC.

    There is a sensor that can be added to my sprinkler controller...
    shuts the controller down if it rains... except it rarely ever rains
    here ;-)
