The recent drought has prompted Governor Brown to enact mandatory water restrictions for the first time in the history of the state of California. With no end to the drought in sight and the level of the state’s reservoirs being at their lowest levels in decades everyone will need to take steps to conserve this precious resource. Grey Water systems have recently been proposed as a method where home owners can help conserve water by using reclaimed water produced by laundry, sinks and bathtubs in non-potable applications such as irrigation or flushing toilets.

I will cover questions such as:

  • What are Grey Water Systems and what are the benefits of their use?
  • Why are Grey Water systems becoming part to the water conservation discussion?
  • What are the concerns of using Grey Water?
  • Will I need a permit to install a Grey Water System?
  • If I wanted to install a Grey Water System how would I go about it?
  • What products are safe to use with a Grey Water System?
  • What components comprise a Grey Water System?
