Greywater – Is it safe? Yes!
Millions of greywater systems have been installed around the world. Greywater is safe for you and your garden with a few simple rules.

No harmful chemicals are involved in the filtration process. In fact, greywater can actually aid in the reclamation of nutrients in topsoil.
Aqua2use greywater systems for residential homes use wastewater from your washing machine, shower and bath. The soapy residue in the draining water makes the water appear grey, but once filtered through our system it appears clear, just like regular drinking water. Although the water appears safe to drink, it isn’t. Aqua2use greywater systems in residential homes produce filtered water that still contains a small amount of soap.
Although drinking the still-soapy filtered water could cause illness in humans and pets, it’s great for plants. Aqua2use greywater systems in residential homes are designed to provide the enthusiastic home gardener with a means to provide extra nutrients to the garden through the use of a drip irrigation hose hooked up directly to the system.
