Grey water is defined as used water that does not contain any hazardous compounds or faeces (also known as black water). Despite the fact that this water can be reused in multiple ways, millions of litres of grey water are flushed away every day.


A good way to reduce this water waste, and save yourself costs on fresh water, is to consider installing a grey water system in your home.


A grey water system is a system that takes used water, typically from showers or washing machines etc, to other parts of the home where it can be used in another way instead of it being drained down into the sewer where it will be wasted. Grey water can be used to water the garden and flush the toilet, and if the water is properly treated it can also be used to fill up swimming pools or for laundry. Not only is this good for the environment, but it will also save you good amounts of money on your water bill in the long run.


In South Africa, the use of grey water is legal but it is important that your grey water systems are properly installed to prevent any issues in the future. A common issue that people face when installing their own grey water systems is preventing clogs from substances such as hair or food particles, so it is important to speak to an expert about what your system is being used for and what you will need to have installed to prevent this from happening.
