Grey Water

>Home >Projects >West Preston> Grey Water

This has been one of the most important purchases for the garden. When we had a bit of cash we discussed purchasing a rainwater tank or a grey water system. As it was summer and we had three people showering, we decided it would be best to use the water we use every day and have already paid for, rather than hoping for rain which might not come.

We brought one of the cheapest systems on the market with a simple three grade mesh filter and small auto pump and connected the system to the shower and the two main garden beds.

The garden instantly sprung into life and our shower water which had only small amounts of soap and shampoo etc. in it was now heading out on the garden via a dripper system.
