Greywater - Small Scale
The typical American home uses 270,000 gallons of water per year - equal to about 5 swimming pools. Water costs about $1.50 for 1000 gallons, so the average annual expense is $405. First consider rain water cisterns 'Rain Barrel' for landscaping for as little as $60 or greywater systems to save money.
Greywater is wastewater from bathtub, shower drain, sinks, washing machines, and dishwashers that can be treated and recycled for irrigation, toilets, and exterior washing, resulting in water conservation and savings. An inexpensive laundry only system for watering plants typically costs just a few hundred dollars to use 15% of your greywater.
The ROI Calculation is based on saving $5 per month.
Water…down the drain, though the filter and into your yard. Dry lawns soak up thousands of gallons of your drinking water via hoses and sprinklers, so consider a greywater system that filters and reuses the shower and sink water.
