I suck it up and share. The cost of renting and maintaining a portable isn't worth it, for me.

I don't let strangers into my house.

I usually only let people I know into my house.

If some contractor breaks my toilet or sewer line then I'd just have them pay for the fixes.

I actually got two for $4.9k.

It's actually got two modes of flushing. Half-flush is great for #1. Full-flush has swallowed down an entire roll of toilet paper and has had my brother (who has notoriously clogged up toilets for 20+ years) using it for several weeks without any issues. 1.6+ GPF toilets waste too much water. I have one that's a gravity toilet in the third bathroom (the "mother in law" suite) and whenever someone stays out there, I actually notice an increase on the water bill. A friend of mine recently installed a 3.5gpf toilet that is closer to a god-damn hurricane... I don't want to know what he tested it with.

I actually have some Phillips Hue light bulbs. My office is equipped with a Nanoleaf Aurora on the wall (with about 10 panels). I usually only use 2-3 unless I'm tinkering with robotics and electronics.


Do you own a Telsa as well by any chance ? I don't think most people can afford the stuff you can .


1.6 gallon is the standard for most household-- if you get the kit for $15-$20 you can turn your exisiting toilet into dual flush without breaking the bank. Dual flush kit will allow you to use 1 gallon for #1 and 1.6 for #2. You are using the toilet for #1 more frequent than #2

low flow faucet heads, low flow showerhead, dual flush toilet, efficiency washer.. we only use around 3000-4000 gallons of water/monthin this house.. until i started to plant citrus trees and having backyard chickens.. it's around 5000-6000 gallons a month now

Not quite, rofl. I have a Genesis G90 and a Hyundai Sante Fe. I just made sure that I made good investments and saved money.

Yeah, dual flush mechanisms aren't anything new. It's just that it works out pretty well once you get the hang of it and utilize it. And wow, that's a lot of water. Watering the plants, sprinkler systems, and two people ... we hit around 2500 gallons a month at most (usually around 1600-1800). Then again, bill-wise, I can't complain. Even at 2500 gallons, the water bill is only around $40.

you bought it for the 10 year warranty ?

$40? usually they will include trash in the bill

the service fee along is $19-- water and trash around $64 a month for us. You know they charged us for the water coming out of the faucets and then also the water going down the drain right!! that's double charging consumers for the same product twice!!! it is even legal ?

We are raising backyard chickens, and having various vegetables and plants (citrus, grapes, pomegranate, etc in the back yard)

Citrus trees need a lot of water- not to mention i live in a desert (it will be 117 on around Saturday this week..

Exactly the reason why. Plus, it's a good vehicle.

The town I live in does free garbage pick-up two times a week. Water and electricity are the only two utilities I pay outside of the Internet (cable/fiber).

is it one of those pro-rated warranties? 10 year is a long time. Will they cover 100% of the parts and labor costs ?


free garbage pick up 2x a week ? I think they are charging you through other means. They are charging each household around here $20 just having a 90 gal trash container (using it or not) and pick up is once per week. Bulk pick up is free though.

It's a powertrain and basic warranty. If there's anything with factory-installed parts, it's included. Same for engine, transmission, and transaxle. Labor and parts are paid for 100% as long as you're within 100,000 miles within that 10 years. I don't drive it for my long trips very often (that's what the Sante Fe is for).

Recycling and Garbage are picked up on Monday. Garbage and Yard Waste gets picked up on Thursday. The Chamber of Commerce gets a lot of donations for such things by local businesses - land taxes aren't that high (compared to neighboring counties) and they hold frequent events that are paid for (everything from wine/beer tasting to food events). I can't complain about the area.

you used the warranty before? or are you just restating the things they told you at purchase?

I'm wary of warranty -- pay now and will cover when it breaks--- it's cash first for service later type of thing. There are companies that refused to honor such warranty/service before.

It's interesting. I thought trash pick up is just a weekly thing.

I ended up having a small issue with the "drive modes" (it can go from eco to sports to... etc). For some reason, the engine wasn't recognizing the difference and would always run in sports mode (even when trying to run in Eco). They kept it for a few days, fixed it - I walked out paying absolutely nothing. Then again, Genesis/Hyundai has always had spectacular warranties in my experience.

As for the trash pick-up, it's because some of the neighbourhood/town ends up going on vacation. We normally have the cleaning/maintenance crew put out any trash they have if we're not in town for a few weeks. If there's any left when we get home (if it's between the two pick-up days) .. we leave it out. Most of our neighbours are the same.
