Low flow toilets could make a big difference for Roanoke. If the city's main water supply drops another few feet, mandatory water restrictions kick in.
But there was some controversy swirling around the early low-flow models. In fact, Shellie Crowder said hers stunk. She'd flush two or three times to clear the bowl.
Things are flowing much more smoothly with her "Toto" toilet -- a brand recommended by CMC Plumbing Supply in Roanoke.

They cost between two and six hudnred dollars, and studies show low flows can save the consumer anywhere from 50 to a hundred dollars a year on water bills.
