Greywater is gently-used water from bathtubs, showers and laundry that can be recaptured and used to water your garden. Greywater is typically 50-80% of a household’s waste stream. Recycling greywater for landscape irrigation saves water and money, reduces your energy footprint, preserves remote aquatic ecosystems, reduces loads on sewer and septic systems, and replenishes local aquifers. Plants love it, and it’s now perfectly legal.
In 2010 the state of California rewrote decades of restrictive building codes to allow simple residential greywater reuse. Our systems typically save a household 10,000 to 50,000 gallons per year – water that would otherwise be pumped hundreds of miles from the Colorado or Sacramento rivers at a huge material and ecological cost.
Irrigating with greywater will lower your water bill; some installations can pay for themselves within a few years.
We stand by all of our installations by offering repair and maintenance services at any time. We aim to build relationships that last as long as our systems do!
