Grey Water: What It Is and Why It’s So Important [2] – DSV

HJL’s Comment: I used to have a neighbor who had a grey water system that captured water from the showers and used it to flush the toilets. There was always a distinct smell that the grey water imparted to his house. He combated this several ways, and the most effective was to use a chlorine system on the holding tank. However, this made the water unsuitable for disposal in a septic system and caused a whole other level of problems. If you re-use grey water inside your household, understand that while you may not smell it after a while due to olfactory fatigue, those who visit you will. In TEOTWAWKI [3], this may not be a pressing issue, but it will be in normal times.
