Are there any greywater solutions for existing homes without major re-plumbing? Real solutions, not a bucket-under-my-sink type of thing.
I am currently capturing rainwater, but I am more interested in ways to reuse everyday greywater within the house.
If you have a washing machine that is located in your garage or along an exterior wall, that's a great place to reuse water. Typically a pipe or hose is run from the exterior wall to nearby landscaping. You can make it as simple as a hose that's moved around from time to time depending on where it's needed most. You will need to use nontoxic detergent.
Greywater Action (formerly the Greywater Guerrillas) has a very informative website with additional resources.
