The Department of Water Affairs predicts that South Africa’s water demand will outstrip its supply by the year 2025.
Thus, every South African should contribute to reducing their daily water needs. An effective and simple way of doing this is by re-using the grey water generated in your home.
– Almost 90% of the water used in a household is disposed of as wastewater.
– Up to 60% of this wastewater can potentially be re-used as grey water.
– Grey water is used from showers, baths, hand basins in the bathroom, and washing machines.
– Grey water can be used to wash cars, flush toilets and water gardens.
By using grey water you can also ensure your garden has an uniterrupted, constant supply of water and you can reduce your monthly water consumption.
