Greywater recycling system

Your bathwater can be reused for washing clothes, watering the garden and more.

If a complete greywater recycling system is not an option for your home or budget, you can still recycle some of your greywater.

After bathing my children, I like to use buckets to transfer the soapy, used bath water to the washing machine. This way I use less water for our chores and everything (and everyone) still gets nice and clean!
