If you're really dead set on using tap water then give it a shot. The worst that could happen is that you'd have to clean blocks more often, but nothing life threatening.

I was simply trying to suggest another viable option to your predicament. Sorry.

What kinds of things have people built like that, that sounds fun too.

With a powerful pump, and a big radiator just dropped into a big bucket of water that fills/empties are they same rate, that would be a hell of a lot easier.



And too the people talking of a waste of water... not around here, we have plenty, and it rains/snows too much

In geology, we never got into what the ground water cycle gets down to in winter???

In-ground swimming pool; drop your rad/exchanger into the pump so its pulling/pushing pool water through, continuously.

Other than that, the toilet idea isn't that great. If you were able to tap a cold water line and then figure out how to let it run, you'd be set minus mineral build-up. Oh...and the waste of water...unless you have an idea of how to introduce an open water line back into your house piping.
