And we're doing other things too, light bulb. They got rid of the light bulb that people got used to the new bulb is many times more expensive and i hate to say it. It doesn't make you look as good, of course, being a vain person. That'S very important to me gives you an orange look. I don't want an orange. Has anyone noticed it so we'll have to change those bulbs at least a couple of rooms where ...
am in the white house. We have a situation where we're looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms, where you turn the faucet on in areas where there's tremendous amounts of water, where thewater rushes out to see because you could never handle it and you don't get any Water, you turn on the faucet, you don't get any water, they take a shower, and water comes dripping out, just clipping out very quietly tripping out. People are flushing, toilets, 10 times 15 times, as opposed to once they end up using more water. So epa is looking at that very strongly and my suggestion you go into a new building or a new house or new home, and they have standards. Only you don't get water, you can't you can't wash your hands practically. This whole little water comes out of the faucet and the end result is you leave the fauceton and it takes you much longer to wash your hands. You end up using the same amount of water, so we're looking at very seriously and opening up the standard, and there may be some areas where we'll go the other route desert areas.

But for the most part you have many states where they have so much water. That it comes down, it's called rain; they don't know they don't know what to do with it. So we're gon na be opening up that. I believe and we're looking at changing the standards very soon and that's a little bit like the lightbulb. Were you gon na bow, that's better for much less money, we go back, but you havethe other alternative and you'll, keep the other alternative, with sinks and showers etc. But that's been a big problem.
