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

#1. Greywater pipes can’t be cost-effectively accessed in an existing building.

  • Shower and tub drains are normally tied into toilet pipes within a few feet.
  • Pipes in slab floors can never be tapped without cutting the slab, an expensive endeavor.
  • Greywater from an upper floor is combined with the toilet water before the pipe comes down the wall.
  • Last, the laundry drain is usually far from showers, making it costly to capture both sources of water.

This is what greywater plumbing looks like coming out of the house before everything gets backfilled. Existing plumbing has none of that.

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

  • It’s not legal or smart to retrofit greywater into an existing irrigation system.
  • And you 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 the system themselves need a lot of help.

  • You’re probably not a plumber and you’ll need all those skills.
  • And unless you’re a landscape/irrigation expert, you’ll lack those skills too.
  • Without all those skill sets, you will make many simple but critical mistakes.
  • Unfortunately, the amount of technical support required to help non-professionals install both the filter system and the irrigation system is prohibitive.
It all makes sense to a plumber...
