DIY greywater toilet system



Who says plumbing is boring? The forward thinking folks at Sloan Valve Company have come up with a compact greywater system for your bathroom that is easy to install and works with the existing fixtures. The greywater system filters the water that goes down your sink drain and then uses it to flush your toilet, potentially saving a household up to 5,000 gallons of potable water each year.

This system helps contribute to LEED accreditation and could possibly lead the way for more wider adoption of extensive greywater recycling systems and public education of just how important water re-use is.


This system could easily be fitted to reclaimed units
