Gray Water For Your Home

If you have a lawn or garden, it’s currently soaking up to 50 percent of your monthly household water consumption. That’s a lot of water feeding your foliage and inflating your bills!

Inside your home, gray water makes up the largest portion of waste water. The term “gray water” refers to untreated wastewater from bath tubs, showers, bathroom sinks, laundry sinks, and washing machines. This water typically runs down the drain to fill your septic system, but when properly stored and filtered, gray water can be diverted for use in irrigation.

When you pair your expensive landscaping water needs with a gray water filtration system, the result is an eco-friendly solution that saves water, money, and lowers your eco-footprint with each drop.
