Grey Water
  • What is Grey water ?
  • Any water that has been used in the home, except
    water from toilets, is called Grey water. Dish,
    shower, sink, and laundry water comprise 50-80
    of residential "waste" water. This may be reused
    for other purposes, especially landscape
    irrigation.
  • Grey water is one of the usages for conserving
    water
  • It can be recycled and used for irrigation

Water Recycling
  • Water recycling is reusing treated wastewater for
    beneficial purposes
  • Using waste water from other places like sinks,
    laundry rooms, and toilets can help save water
  • Use Water Filters
  • For Bathing
  • Try taking showers instead of baths
  • Bath uses up to 50 gallons of water when shower
    only uses only 8 gallons
