Greywater

Greywater is wastewater from the bath, shower, basin, laundry tub and washing machine. Greywater can be used on lawns, gardens and for other purposes around the home. For health and environmental reasons, it is illegal to use wastewater from toilets, bidets and kitchens as greywater.

Greywater normally enters the sewerage system and is carried to your local wastewater treatment plant. However, appropriate reuse of greywater can help reduce your water bills.
