What is greywater recycling

If you’re unfamiliar with this type of recycling, the No. 1 question on your mind is likely: What is greywater, anyway?

To put it simply, greywater is water from bathroom sinks, tubs, showers and laundry washing machines. Despite frequent confusion, greywater does not include water from toilets, kitchen sinks and automatic dishwashers (this is called “blackwater”) and has not come into contact with food and human waste, either through kitchen sink food waste disposal or flushing toilets.

Greywater may contain traces of dirt, food, grease, hair and certain household cleaning products. While Greywater may look “dirty,” it is a safe and even beneficial source of irrigation water, according to the advocacy group Greywater Action (The spellings of “greywater” and “graywater” are often used interchangeably in discussions about this topic).

As potable water supplies become more limited throughout the world, there is a growing interest in innovative approaches to water resources sustainability, and household greywater reuse for residential landscape irrigation is a potential solution that’s slowly picking up steam.

Greywater recycling offers scores of benefits; plants can beneficially utilize the constituents found in greywater as valuable nutrients.
