What is Grey Water?

Any washwater that has been used in the home, except water from toilets, is called grey water. Dish, shower, sink, and laundry water comprise 50-80% of residential “waste” water. This may be reused for other purposes, especially landscape irrigation.

 The use of grey water is regulated because of the potential for it to spread disease around your home and elsewhere. Infection can occur if untreated grey water is stored or used so that birds, insects, pets or children come into contact with it.

What are the benefits of installation a grey water system in your Home?

Installing a Grey Water System in your home offers many benefits including:

  • A source of irrigation water all year round
  • A relatively easy and safe source of water to access and use
  • A good source of important nutrients for many plants.

Why Use Grey Water?

It’s a waste to irrigate with great quantities of drinking water when plants thrive on used water containing small bits of compost. Unlike a lot of ecological stopgap measures, greywater reuse is a part of the fundamental solution to many ecological problems and will probably remain essentially unchanged in the distant future.

 The Benefits Of Greywater Recycling Include:

  • Lower freshwater use
  • Less strain on failing septic tank or treatment plant
  • Better treatment (topsoil is many times more effective than subsoil or treatment plant)
  • Less energy and chemical use
  • Groundwater recharge
  • Plant growth
  • Reclamation of otherwise wasted nutrients
  • Increased awareness of and sensitivity to natural cycles



Is Grey Water Reuse Safe?

Yes. There are millions of greywater systems in Australia, furthermore, In 60 years, there has not yet been one documented case of greywater transmitted illness.

 

Tips for greywater use:

  • Keep an eye on the health of your plants. Greywater tends to be high in chemicals that alter the structure of the soil, and it also tends to be overused.
  • Bear in mind: sick looking plants could be suffering from overwatering, rather than the chemicals in the greywater.
  • Give your plants a break by using rainwater (if you have a rainwater tank) or tap water every six weeks.
  • Use compost to increase the organic content of your soil, improve its structure and help it survive the chemical onslaught.
  • If your greywater is untreated, don’t use it to water edible plants or indoor plants.
