We only support New Construction
and Major Remodels. Here’s why:

#1. Greywater pipes can only be cost-effectively arranged during construction.

  • Shower, tub, and bathroom sink drains are normally connected to toilet pipes within a few feet in existing buildings.
  • Pipes in exiting slab floors can never be tapped without cutting the slab, an extremely expensive endeavor.
  • Greywater from upper floors is combined with toilet water before the pipe comes down the wall, making it all sewage and unusable.
  • Last, the laundry drain is usually far from showers, making it costly to capture both these key sources of greywater.

This is what greywater plumbing looks like coming out of the house before everything gets backfilled. An existing building's plumbing has none of that.

#2. Most existing homes already have a viable irrigation system.

  • It’s not legal, smart, or even practical to retrofit greywater into an existing irrigation system.
  • And you probably won’t want to buy another irrigation system if yours already works.
  • Finally, an established landscape has to be torn up to install the underground drip irrigation required by law.

Most existing homes already have an irrigation system in their landscape. Whether sprinklers, rotors, micro spray, or drip, it's not underground drip approved for untreated greywater.

#3. Homeowners who try to install a greywater irrigation system themselves need a lot of help.

  • You’re probably not a plumber and you’ll need a lot of plumbing skills.
  • You’re probably not a landscape/irrigation expert either, and you’ll need those skills as well.
  • Without all those skills, you will make simple but costly mistakes.
  • The amount of technical support required to help non-professionals install both the filter system and irrigation system is prohibitive.
It all makes sense to a plumber...
