Another example of greywater use is collecting and storing rainwater for home use.

    I thought the greay water system that connected the bathroom sink to the toilet was great! I wonder how long its been available and how reliable it is.
    I’ve installed greywater systems in houses that connected the bathroom sink water to outside storage tanks for landscape watering. But, connecting the water directly to the toilet is a big step ahead of what I have been doing.
