Human urine is a great, natural, free source of Nitrogen for your soil or compost. Flushing your urine after each pee, would waste thousands of gallons of water per year at home. Then, your valuable urine is not only lost, but it goes to a chemical waste center where they must use chemicals on all that water you flushed, since within the sewage pipes it has all gotten mixed with stool. To minimize the water shortages seen in so many communities, an easy way to save water is by NOT flushing away your urine. Using for your compost or garden is an extra benefit. (If you just let it sit in the toilet bowel until you have a bowel movement, then the urine can start to smell up your bathroom, and your garden or compost would be missing out on a great source of liquid nitrogen.) Try it…. it is much easier, cleaner, and normal than you might think.
