Grey Water Systems

Grey water is shower, bath and washing machine water that is diverted into a small 120L purpose built tank and pumped into the garden as an additional water source.

Why invest in a
Grey Water System?

Are you concerned about the increasing demand for water in the Western Cape? Are you in a situation where you are passionate about gardening, but don’t have the means to a well point or a borehole? Grey water may be the solution for you.

The benefits are:

  • It reduces the need for fresh water & the demand on public water supply
  • Water bills are reduced – saving you money every month
  • It reduces the amount of wastewater entering our sewers and water treatment systems
  • It is safe to irrigate your garden with grey water, providing that you use environmentally friendly products
  • You pay for the water once and get to use it twice by recycling the water in your garden

How does it work?

  • Bath, shower and washing machine water is redirected into a small holding tank
  • Grey water is pumped into your garden through a supplied hose and sprinkler when the holding tank reaches a certain level
  • A submersible pump switches on automatically when it reaches this point to ensure that the grey water is pumped out regularly to avoid unpleasant odours caused by stagnant water
