Throughout countries, periodic droughts can leave water in short supply. Reusing and recycling water helps decrease demand and ensure more water is available for everyone. Water can be recycled at an individual level by homeowners, or at a municipal or county level through nonpotable and indirect potable reuse.
Recycling of grey water for irrigation purposes is well practiced world-wide. Greywater is household wastewater from bathroom sinks, showers, tubs and clothes washing machines; it has not come into contact with feces or passed through a toilet. The greywater can be treated first, or it may be used untreated.
By recycling your grey water you save money and water without changing your lifestyle.
