Grey water is household waste water from the bathroom, hand basin, shower, and laundry. A licensed plumber can install your household with a grey water recycling system so you can treat and recycle grey water for productive uses such watering gardens, yards and plants. They can insure that your grey water system is installed and operated in such a way that that it will not harm the environment and will ensure the system is in line with the codes of practice for reuse of grey water in your specific state.
There are two types of grey water systems, gravity fed manual systems and package systems, which both divert grey water from the house onto the garden. The manual systems do not require electricity or pumps because they work on gravity taking the grey water to the area needed, and they may require a larger yard area to install the system outside. Packaged systems require electricity but are self-contained and can be installed indoors.
The benefit of a grey water treatment system is that it improves the quality of water, and with some further disinfection it can also be used for surface irrigation or diverted inside the house for flushing the toilet, and washing clothes.
