Dear forum readers,
I have a question and I hope someone can answer my questions. What are the rules for installing a treated greywater system. Am I allowed, as a private person, to order a system in Europe, import it and have it installed it in my house or would that be against the rules? I found a system takes water from the shower & bath, cleans it and disinfects the water and then serves the toilets for flushing by a separate tube system. The system wil save about one third of total household water used and is low cost.
Laura, I’m also interested in a system like this and wonder what info you have on legal and pre-legal greywater flushing systems in California (Alameda county). We have a new construction project and would at the least like to plump for the ability to install such a system in the future once state and local regulations catch up to this idea, what I think of as the holy grail of greywater use.
Surely it’s legal to plumb and cap-off a secondary intake for a toilet tank, and secondary outlets for a sink and shower, right?
