If you’re at all eco-conscious, you’re probably aware, and horrified, at how much water is wasted in an average household every day. Some of that water can’t be reused and is necessary for everyday life. However, some water, like greywater, can be reused in other areas of the household. If you’re at all interested in learning how to use your greywater to hydrate your landscape, and at a minimal cost, this is the perfect tutorial for you.
For those who don’t know, greywater is waste water that isn’t actually all that dirty. It’s the water that comes out of sinks, bathtubs, and washing machines. While this water is needed to stay clean, when it’s overused, it can make quite an impact on the environment. Thankfully, there are several ways to reuse this water and this tutorial describes a simple way of reusing the greywater from a washing machine to use it to water yards.
There are quite a few steps and a very long list of supplies for this project. However, the writer has a very clear set of instructions and even provides downloads so you can print out and take the supply list with you to the hardware store. And, while it might seem like a little bit of a cost up front, please remember that this is both good for the environment and will lower your water bills in the long run.
