Clean drinking water is getting scarce and expensive. One solution to water shortages is to use some of your household water twice.

The greywater from sinks, bathtubs and even clothes washers can be put to use in the landscape. Create an Oasis with Greywater is a complete guide to designing and building a greywater system.

The book begins by explaining why you would want to use greywater and when it’s not appropriate. It continues with greywater sources, health guidelines, 20 system examples, greywater plumbing principles, components, maintenance, troubleshooting, suppliers and more. The text is clear and each greywater system is illustrated.

The supplement Building Professionals Greywater Guide is highly recommended.
