What Is Greywater?
Greywater is the wastewater we get after using clean potable water for certain tasks such as showering, washing clothes or dishes. In most cases, greywater leaves the property via sewage and gets treated alongside blackwater (water from toilets that has been in contact with human waste). However, greywater is, in fact, much easier to treat and recycle than blackwater due to it containing far less harmful bacteria. Methods of treatment vary from relatively simple to highly complex automated systems. Depending on how it is treated, recycled greywater can be reused in numerous circumstances, from irrigation to flushing toilets.
Uses Of Greywater
Potable water (clean drinking water) is necessary for many of our daily needs. Apart from drinking, we need it to wash and prepare food, as well as for certain hygiene tasks like toothbrushing. However, a large amount of potable water is used for tasks that could just as well be done using recycled greywater.
As long as it is treated, greywater can be used for:
- flushing toilets
- irrigation and watering plants (although not home-grown vegetables)
- washing clothes
Although available in domestic situations, the practice of greywater recycling is found far more frequently in commercial and agricultural contexts. Companies and hotels are using more and more greywater systems, as it not only saves water, but is also a cost-effective solution for water usage.
Installing a greywater recycling concrete tank can help lower environmental impact while helping you or your business save money.
