Grey water system off grid tiny home
by Riaan van Schalkwyk
I bought an off grid property, as septic tanks are expensive to install and maintain, I am looking at a more sustainable method of reusing grey water in a sustainable way. I am investigating a closed system of IBC container wicking beds, all linked together and at the final stage capturing any excess water to be reused either in other veggie gardens or orchard. I live in the Coromandel Peninsula in NZ north Island. My toilet will be a composting toilet.
I would like to make a contribution to the wider off grid tiny home community in managing grey water sustainably and at low cost in food production.
Where I live is not a dry climate, however water is becoming a scarce commodity globally.
