Gray and Green: Maximizing Use of Graywater

Reusing the water you used to wash and bathe just makes good sense.

In this residential graywater system, water is diverted from points of household use. The lines converge at a filtered and vented surge tank, and there the water can be delivered via an underground irrigation system. Depending on the size and nature of the landscape area, a pump might be needed to assist in irrigation.
