A housing for a conventional sanitizing disk for attachment in series between a toilet's fill tube and an overflow tube. The housing generally includes a body portion (or container) having a planar, bottom wall, a contiguous sidewall extending upwardly therefrom, a lid hinged to the sidewall, and a rigid conduit extending tangentially outwardly from the sidewall and in fluid communication with the interior of the body portion. An opening is formed centrally through the bottom wall, and a tubular neck portion extends concentrically downwardly from the bottom wall and into the overflow tube, thereby positioning the housing atop the overflow tube. A flexible conduit extends in fluid communication between the fill tube and the rigid conduit, and consequently, the body portion. A cup for containing the sanitizing disk sits loosely within the body portion, and includes an opening formed centrally through the bottom thereof, and a gear fixedly and concentrically attached to the bottom thereof. A water turbine is positioned immediately beneath the cup and, as water enters the body portion, causes the cup to rotate and the water to pass over the sanitizing disk.
