View Full Version : Greywater use
10-01-2007, 09:11 AM
We're buying a low set Queenslander house. The greywater from the shower and the kitchen sink could be used somehow, in the garden or the toilet.
It must be a professional system (reselling) but it must be quite economical.
Does someone recently bought such a system? With or without tank and what were the costs involved? Which elements do we need? And what are reliable brabds?

I've been looking at getting one of these for our current house.
( Greywater Diverta & Garden Irrigation System, $699 fron Neco )
The slope on the block rules out usage for the backyard, but the front yard should be do-able.
If you get a pumped unit, it's a lot easier of course.
Something like :
(EcoCare Greywater Diverter System, $999)
You can do it yourself - Bunnings sell a 50mm diverter valve that you can plumb to a suitable length of subsoil irrigation pipe/weeping hose. Probably an idea to put a basic sand filter in there (box'o'sand) to keep chunky bits/hair/etc out of the distribution system. The install manual from that first link gives a good description of installing the sub-surface irrigation.
