Well that’s the easy and not so easy part. The easy answer is redirect your greywater to the plant outside your home. The hard part is how. In a lot of cases this requires rethinking your drains. If your drains (such as your shower) are below grade there is not much that can be done. On the other hand as you rething yourl iving space in the future – remodeling and such – this presents a great opportunity to reroute your water.
Short of remodeling here are some ideas for using greywater in your yard.
• Try to use the greywater as close to the source as possible as the drain pipe needs a slope and the further away from the source the more it needs to slope down.
• Never ever store greywater. It gets stiny and goes bad fast. Design your system so that your greywatergoesdirectly into the ground.
• Use soaps like the biocompatible Oasis soap when cleaning as you dont want harsh chemicals in your yard.
Ideas for types of systems:
• A hose over the tree in the summer
• Put in an out doorshower or sink for rinsing your veggies
• You can also replumb your bathroom sink – more costly and time consuming however.
