Rain and Recycling Household Water
When I clean the dogs and cats water dishes (I have three labs), I dump the water bowls into a bucket using that water for house plants. Very soon we are running a line from the washer to the back yard, watering the wild flowers and trees. Water from the sinks goes straight to the septic and we are allowed to run gray water on the ground here. Black water goes where it belongs, the septic. I use a homemade mix of yeast and sugar to keep the septic flowing nicely. Small things, but effective.
I hope you all have a cool, relaxing weekend!
