    There is a fixed amount of water in Earth's atmosphere, and just like in a house, the integrity of its "plumbing" is crucial to trouble-free service. Draining a swamp is like bypassing a treatment system, and damming a creek is like increasing the threshold in a flow-control valve ... and before long it is time to move!

    Ya know,


    I'd have to see numerous unbiased reports to attest to these figures. I also understand that all water consumed usually makes it way back to sewage treatment plants, along with stormwater infiltrations. I've heard of people getting fined in florida for watering their lawns. Water police.

    If it stopped raining for a year, I'd be convinced the end is near. I keep eating deluxe breakfasts from McDonald's, the end is near.

    I started a second business that caters indirectly towards hot climate but I'm not going to advertise it here; I despise indirect advertising in my forums.

    All I can say is that it fits a need perfectly and it should be treated as safety equipment for all that use it. The rest follows entertainment guidelines for those to stay longer, spend more when they are out and about.

    It hit the ground running and I'm hoping for the best in 08'.

    I am here in Georgia. We are looking at less than 90 days of fresh water in our water basins. Watering outside starts at 1000.00 fine. Theres even a hot line to call to report watering. Business have been ordered to lower water consumption 25%. Landscapers have 4 days to water newly planted scapes.

    Default Rant

    The thing that really upsets me is the constant mantra from government that growth is inevitable. Things like warming and the current water crisis are Mother Nature's way of saying No, it isn't. One day they may realize that the "best and highest use" of a coastline doesn't involve condo towers and pristine white beaches. I don't think the consequences are going to be pretty.

    Exclamation I'm drinking water right now, should I feel bad?

    I got an excuse! Trying to tame a kidney stone.


    You wouldn't believe how many homes I walk into, have numerous plumbing leaks and the only ones they want fixed are the ones that disable the fixture.


    That means I leave the house with those other problems remaining, as they don't understand the drip factor. $$$


    If the water district could itemize their bill in contrast in consumption against waste/leaks, you'd see people fixing their plumbing leaks I'd bet.
