What is Greywater?

Posted in: articles by

Greywater is the wastewater generated from activities done around your home, such as bathing, washing dishes and washing clothes. Greywater often times has a negative connotation, but it can be an asset if used properly.

A lot of people don’t realize that greywater can be recycled for landscape irrigation and other purposes that can benefit the environment. Recycled greywater not only reduces the amount of wastewater that enters sewer systems but also reduces the amount of freshwater that is needed for the good of a home.

Greywater gets its name from its cloudy appearance. Fresh water is known as white water, while sewage water is known as black water. Greywater is capable of composing as much as 80 percent of all residential wastewater generated from the sanitation unit of a home, sans the toilets. Greywater can be used for lawn care, for routine landscaping or for watering maturing crops.

Greywater may not be drinkable, but it’s definitely usable. Let our Denton TX plumbers assist you with finding further uses for greywater. Call our Denton plumbing company, or contact us online for details.
