- long flexible eyeliner;

Toilet upgrade process to save water
It is necessary to remove the lid from the toilet bowl and remove the inlet mechanism.
It is necessary to seal the water outlet holes with silicone sealant, and cut in the flexible hose from the side. Then the mechanism returns to its place.
After that, you need to modify the tank cap. The hole for the drain button needs to be widened to insert the corrugation from the sink siphon. It is better to cut ceramics with a diamond blade. A hole is also made for the output of a flexible line cut into the intake mechanism.
A small washbasin with a tap is installed above the toilet. An embedded flexible hose is connected to the tap. Then the siphon is installed and discharged into the tank. The tap itself must be left open.
Thus, each time after pressing the flush, water will flow from the tap and drain into the tank.
This will allow you to wash your hands under the stream for this minute. That is, soapy water will be reused.
After such a refinement, it is better to use liquid soap, then white stains will not remain on the walls of the toilet bowl.
