Grey Water Harvesting Installation

You can harvest grey water from showers, baths, bathroom basins and washing machines. Water from the kitchen sink, dishwasher and toilets is classified as Black Water and should NOT be redirected to a Grey Water Harvesting Tank. 

All Grey Water harvested from these sources should be pumped out of the tank not later than the next day and should not be stored for longer than 24 Hours unless specially treated with Ozone for that purpose.

Grey water pumped from the storage tank should not be utilised in sprinkler irrigation systems. Rather connect a garden hose with a sprayer to the submersible pump outlet.

Should you experience unpleasant odours from the Grey Water Tank, you may add a small amount of swimming pool chlorine or household bleach to clean the water.
