Did you know that almost 50% of an average household's potable water is used for showering, taking baths, using the bathroom sink and doing laundry? Instead of watching this water go down the drain, you can capture and reuse it to feed your landscape with a greywater system.
In it's simplest form, you can capture greywater by installing a 3-way diverter valve behind your washing machine (typically called a laundry-to-landscape installation). If there is access to your drainpipes, a diverter valve can be installed to capture the greywater from your bathroom sinks, showers and bath tubs.
The greywater can then be pumped out or flow by gravity to your plants, trees and shrubs subsurface into mulch basins. Mulch basins are one foot deep holes that are dug out around the canopy of each plant, tree or shrub. The mulch and soil organically clean out the hair, lint and soap from your greywater to provide the roots with clean water sufficient for healthy growth.
Also called "mini reservoirs", mulch basins are proven to provide a stable source of water and nutrients, help keep the landscape more moisture-rich throughout the year, and are essential as a fire retardant.
With a greywater system, you can capture water that is produced every day of the year to keep your landscape green and beautiful, even during a drought period.
