I've been unable to install my system, but I've installed them in the past for some of my clients, mostly washing machine to cistern for irrigation.

My dream is to have all non-potable water (washing machine, toilets, etc.) hooked up to a greywater system, but my ideas are not backed by financing at this moment. Oh well, some day.....
