Greywater distribution to an existing drought tolerant landscape using the Aquifer Pipe

Here is a video for everyone who collects shower water in a bucket as the water is getting hot.
(More Power to my fellow water conservation tribe).

In this video we add the Aquifer Pipe greywater distribution to an existing drought tolerant landscape. The homeowner already installed a drought tolerant landscape a year earlier. But the idea of going 100% greywater to the front landscape was exciting to her. So we repipe the shower from under the house to a greywater distribution unit, made from a decorative flower pot. The greywater enters the decorative pot, passes through the filter to capture any hair then flows out to the Aquifer Pipes in the landscape.


All gravity flow system, from the shower, to the distribution unit, to the Aquifer Pipes buried 12 inches below the surface. Only maintenance is to change the filter every 2 to 3 months.

Total job time: 3 days

Footnote: none of the DIY greywater system we show hold the greywater, they all pass it right through the distribution unit, and out to the landscape
