||A study was made to determine the ability of existing water conservation hardware to correct malfunctioning on-site wastewater disposal systems resulting from soil clogging and to document, under actual use conditions, possible reduction of wastewater with water conservation hardware, the changes in wastewater quality, and homeowner acceptance of the devices. Although the devices lowering the levels of wasteflow (air assisted toilets, front loading automatic washers, low-flow shower heads, and faucet flow control aerators) were not successful by themselves in correcting the malfunction, they did correct or reduce the frequency or severity of the malfunction.
