Greywater Recycling

Greywater Recycling | APES: Grey Water Uses and Technology | Scoop.it

This article discusses the benefits of using grey water.  As almost 60% of the water in our household can be recycled, it is almost a no brainer to not recycle it through this technology.  By using greywater to water plants, water actually gets put back into our groundwater system.  This then adds the depleting amount of groundwater which we are rapidly pumping causing more problems then just water loss.  However, the article also lists some valuble points for reasons why this might not be a good if your soil is in a certain condition and could lead to contamination.

My Scoop on Grey Water

   Grey Water could be our solution that America is looking for. The fight to find a solution is OVER. It's time for grey water to come in and help our fight for conserving water.  The solution is simple and is simply looming in front of everybodies faces. But most people do not know what grey water is, and it name being GREY water doesn't make it sound to great.  But grey water is one of the most valuble resources any home has that is completely free!

   Grey water is all the water that is gets run down the drain that is perfectly usable.  Take washing your hands.  The water that was washed down the sink can be used to water lawns or even go straight to the toilet.  By using grey water, millions of homes and families across america can save hundred or even thousands of dollars a year by simply reusing water.

   While this idea is great, there is still the question of how do we simply reuse our water? Well the solution is simple. Many companies sell grey water appliances that can be installed into your home. Many go under your sink and collect the water and are then able to send it to your other applicances to be reused.  Why wouldn't anyone want to maximize their resources and not have to worry about increasing bills during times of drought? The solution is grey water and with the spread of this techonolgy, wasting earth's most precious resource won't be as much of a problem.
