Prepare to Add a Graywater System

A small-scale graywater system can be easily installed without professional help. These systems come in kit form with clear instructions. In addition to a filtration unit, you will need to buy extra waste pipe and the right connections, as well as a compatible water barrel. This system is ideally suited for connection to bath or basin wastes. To start, mark on the waste pipe where you will fit the combination outlet. Allow space for the cut ends of the pipe to fit into the sockets of the outlet.
