GRAY WATER SYSTEM
Historically,
plumbing codes did
not attempt to
distinguish between
greywater, which can
be thought of as all
wastewater generated
in households or
office buildings that
does not contain fecal
matter such as water
from bathroom sinks,
showers, baths,
washing machines
and blackwater which
is water from toilets,
kitchen sinks and
dishwashers.
WATER RECYCLING SYSTEM
Grey water recycling systems vary in size and complexity from simple drip
irrigation and laundry to landscape systems to solutions using pumps,
filtration devices and storage tanks. There are on-line instructions and kits for
do-it-yourselfers as well as any number of regional and national companies
that provide the components and in most cases installation of water recycling
systems.
GRAY WATER RECYCLING
Gray water recycling is
not a passing fad. It is a
viable water
conservation strategy
that is gaining attention
from homeowners,
conservationists, state
governors, and
departments of water
across the country and
around the world.
If you are considering
installing a residential
greywater recycling
system, there are some
key facts you should
know.
