Graywater is water from your bathroom sinks, showers, tubs and washing machines. It contains traces of dirt, food, grease, hair and household cleaning products. While graywater may look “dirty,” it is a safe and even beneficial source of irrigation water in a yard. Many simple, economical ways exist to reuse graywater in the landscape.
Using graywater can be as simple as watering plants with a bucket that catches drips from a shower, or as advanced as a whole-home plumbing system.
