Background

Older toilets can use 3.5, 5, or even up to 7 gallons per flush (gpf). Toilets typically account for 30 percent of daily water consumption. The current US national standard is 1.6 gpf, while the California standard is 1.28 gpf. A WaterSense® toilet also uses 1.28 gpf or less while being able to remove 350 grams (about ¾ pound) of material. The 350 grams is based on a 99th percentile load. A MaP PREMIUM product requires 1.1 gpf or less and needs to remove 600 grams (1.32 pound) or more, three times a normal 'demand' upon a toilet.

Innovation
My water saving toilet system uses two traps, an upper and lower trap. When the tank is being filled, ...

A wooden lamp uses tree trunks as its truss, not including metal or concrete poles. At the same time, the project interacts with the tree movement caused by the wind or other factors. Cooperation while moving trees with a lamp in this design project is possible thanks to the ball hinges and telescopic arms.

The rims on the tree trunk would be connected with halving joint with the possibility of widening as the trunk diameter increase.
