DIY – Designing A Greywater System

SAVE $$$ BY DESIGNING A GREYWATER SYSTEM

Setting up your Greywater System can save you thousands of dollars.  Instead of running your plumbing parallel with the sewer system, we divert greywater to the nearest exterior wall.  Instead of one central point, we use proximity to water your lawn.  

Ideal for larger projects, we run the greywater out to all four sides of the building (this is especially true if there are bathrooms or laundry rooms near all sides).  This eliminates the need for extra space you would need between the joist to run two sets of pipes.

BENEFITS FOR A COMMERCIAL APPROACH

Commercial buildings can run the air conditioning condensation to each side of the building for the ground level landscape.  Then they can make shorter runs from bathroom sinks to irrigate multi-level terraces.  Wherever these is a greywater knockout, we have plumbers place a cleanout from the sewer.  Now the greywater will feed the landscape by simple gravity.

Hence, sites that require greywater use non-pressurized emitters, because they don’t want greywater to blowback into the city system.  The cleanout is there to direct the greywater back to the sewer if needed and/or as overflow.  Each side will require its own distribution/filter tank, but you eliminated the pump for the system.

A RECENT EXAMPLE

We recently watched a contractor run laundry and laundry sink greywater out to the east side of his building.  This approach watered the top landscape of the edifice and the west side slope.  The two family showers are sent to the south side to irrigate the central courtyard and driveway.  Master bathroom shower water then flows to the west side to water both west side and north side landscapes.

LET US TEACH YOU HOW!

Projects like these are amazing – especially watching the contractors grow in confidence, as we teach them how to design and install our greywater equipment.
