Branched Drain Greywater Workshop
May 7, 2016
Interested in learning how to install your own
greywater irrigation system? We will be teaching
a greywater class and hands-on workshop
where you will learn all about greywater and
then participate in installing a greywater system.
Note that this workshop is specifically about the
"Branched Drain" greywater irrigation
system. These systems are a little more
elaborate than Laundry-to-Landscape system
(our usual workshop format), and require
reconfiguring the waste plumbing in your crawl
space. Branched drains are low-tech gravity-flow
systems that recapture water from bathtubs,
showers, bathroom sinks and washing
machines. More info about these systems HERE.
++ Overview of different greywater systems
++ Benefits and drawbacks of greywater reuse
