Give Greywater Extra Life

Updated: Dec 22, 2021

While collecting, cleaning and reusing greywater may sound incredibly complex, it is actually easy. An average household can reuse more than 70% of its water supply - good news for one's budget and the environment.

  1. Only use bio-enzyme and/or eco-friendly soaps and detergents. Reducing the amount of chemicals used, reduces the pollution load on our scarce water sources.

  2. If you use non-natural, chemical compound-based soaps and detergents, you will need to purify all greywater before it is safe to reuse it or release it into the ground. A natural filtering treatment process can be installed for this purpose.

  3. Redirect safe greywater from washing machines, showers, baths, basins and kitchen sinks into a holding tank or buckets. Greywater can be used for watering lawns and gardens, or cleaning outdoor areas and equipment (using bio-enzyme cleaners for safe runoff water).

  4. Alternatively, redirect safe greywater into a french drain and/or dry well. Using a french drain helps to recharge the ground water by allowing the greywater to slowly permeate into the soil underground.


Always remember that greywater is not potable.
