Progress! Is it always moving forward?
I just replaced the toilet in my trailer and this discussion has caused me to think about it. The new toilets, by the design of the bowl and the activation assembly, do not use any where as much water. One would consider this as progress until you are faced with the topic of this discussion.

Historically "mounding" was a problem of trailer that had the toilet, mostly SOBs, on the curb side of the trailer, or the high side of the tank. The old adage "Sxxx flowing down hill" is not really true it needs water to get things started and to maintain the trip. So called progress has now given us a chance to share this problem. The water we saved in the usage will now be used to move things along.
