Should I put a brick in my toilet tank to conserve water?

Toilet flushing uses a lot of water, but a brick in your toilet tank is not a good idea. A brick tends to crumble and might damage the toilet’s mechanism. A glass jar or plastic jug filled with water works well. After any changes, be sure to test the toilet to make sure it’s still working properly. Flow restrictors in shower heads and faucets are another good way to conserve water.
