Commit to recycle gray water. In the near future, it is essential to reuse gray water, ie water that we used for washing dishes, washing hands, showering or washing clothes.
This is a large amount of water (up to 80% of water used in a home), which ends mixing with the sewage (with feces), which makes them much more difficult to recycle.
There are different ways of reusing greywater from home systems to devices that are purchased for installation in homes, buildings, offices, businesses or any building where fresh water used daily.
If you live in a house with a garden, you can reuse these waters very well, because they serve for irrigation, meaning huge savings at the same time can provide useful substances for plants.
There are economic filters that are responsible for separating the solids and the fat of the water (can be made with coarse sand and activated carbon). Then the filtered water can pass into a tank with water plants that purify it further, leaving it perfectly ready for the irrigation of orchards and gardens.
Even this water can go directly to the ground, through a system known as a mulch, which is a kind of trench filled with bark, straw or leaves, they filter it thicker, so that water running through it moisten the ground solids while collaborating with the formation of compost.
(I personally know of homes where water from the washing machine goes directly to the ground without causing any problem, even the grass is much greener in the drainage area and the area is always moist for good growth of plants).
For those living in buildings in cities, it is best to install systems for gray water reuse community, that supply water to the toilet all the neighbors, and to irrigate landscaping areas community. The savings, depreciation expense shortly.
Can also be installed in houses, small-scale purification of this water, so your garden irrigation water available in abundance throughout the year. If you to build your own home keep that in mind, because the expense you will make savings in the future.
Some new construction, and include these systems is expected to soon be mandatory in all buildings to be constructed and recycling greywater becomes a normal and everyday.
Find out the different possibilities and begins to recycle gray water as far as you can, be aware that every day a lot of clean water or dirty just goes to the sewers.
