Reclaim Water From Shower For Garden

One great way to save water is from your faucets. How many of us always run the water for a few moments when we are getting ready to take a shower waiting for it to get warm? By keeping a big bucket handy you can catch enough to water quiet a few plants instead of letting it go down the drain. When on water restrictions, this really comes in handy.

Of course there are other ways also, catching the wash and rinse water from you washer. All you need to do here is fix an extension for your water outlet on the washer so it will reach the large container you want to use.

Using rain barrels is catching on quick too. Just remember your grass will always go dormant without water and rebound when it gets plenty of rain.

Unfortunately, most of you must check your municipal code and/or water department to see if the use of 'grey' water is legal. No joke. Some codes or water departments will cite you for secondary use of water with the claim, usually written in small print, that your payment for water is a one-use only permit. Using water that you used for a shower or to wash dishes is called the secondary use of 'grey' water. (I do not know about regulation of well water or stream water, on one's own property).
