This succinct handbook addresses everything the homeowner needs to know to plan and install a greywater system. Readers will learn how to identify greywater sources in their home, estimate the flow rate, and plan what areas of their landscape and which plants to redirect the water to for the most effective system. Step-by-step instructions are provided for installing a laundry-to-landscape (L2L) system, a branched drain gravity-fed system, and a greywater system with tank and pump, including the basic plumbing knowledge required to install and maintain each system.
