Watering plants with water from a "pooless" shower. I filled up the bucket two separate times. The bottom of the pink bucket says it holds 11.1 quarts. Since it was not completely full, I estimate each time it was about 8-9 quarts so a total of 16-18 quarts. We have been in a sort of drought, so everything needed extra water.

Edge case submission
I've never been asked to get naked to do a video before. But in the spirit of badging my bits, I'm game. Here's a video of me taking a pooless shower, and using the approximately 3 gallons of diverted water to flush the #1 tainted toilet water.

You're welcome.

Hi Jim,

It's hard to see in the video. Can you show that there was at least 3 gallons used?

Edit: Since I already flushed it, I can't show it was 3 gallons or more. It was a 5 gallon waste basket and it was about 2/3 full of water. I guess I'll just have to take another shower, ha ha.

EDIT:

Took another shower after work and used the (verified 2/3 full 5 gallon trash can) water to flush my pee down the drink...

Thanks for holding this ADHD student to the standards!

I wasn’t quite sure the size of the purple bucket in the shower at the fisher price house, something close to 3 gallons but not quite full. So I did it twice.

First watering hugels and the second flushing the toilet.
