Greywater Branch Termination
The state allows a single stand-alone greywater branch termination system.
That's one shower, one bathtub, one lavatory, one laundry run out to a tree, bush, fill pit, covered with dried leaves and debris. (Kitchen sinks and toilets are not allowed because they are septic and should remain connected to your septic system per code.)
The only real source of new, clean drinking water is rainfall. When you have a rainwater harvesting system
in place, (like 2000 gallons) it will be fillled in a month with rainfall. Instead of drinking water for toilets and watering, use free water off your roof!
Instead of using drinking water to flush toilets and water landscape, you can use your harvested water.
