According to sources, the average bath will use around 35+/- gallons of water. Why let that water go down the drain? Instead, it can safely be reused to irrigate your landscaping, or divert the bath water to a greywater harvesting system. The Tub to Turf Greywater Harvesting Kit™ is an easy to use product that comes with everything you need to start harvesting the greywater from your bathtub.
How does it work? Determine where you would like the 3/4" diameter pvc discharge pipe to pass through your bathroom exterior wall, drill a hole, and install the discharge pipe assembly with the included wall mount flange. Connect the discharge hose between the sump pump and the wall flange, via the quick couplers at each end of the discharge hose. After you have taken a bath, simply place the sump pump in the bath tub and the attached float switch will automatically turn the pump on & off. The harvested water will be pumped outside to your landscaping or to your greywater harvesting system surge tank. When the kit is not in use, you can simply store it away under the sink or in a plastic container.
What are the benefits? By harvesting bath water, you will be reusing a valuable resource, allowing you to water your landscaping with harvested water, instead of fresh water, thus saving water. Moreover, by harvesting bath water, you will be easing the burden on the city sewer system and/or your septic tank and drain field.
Here is what is included in the kit:
-Sump Pump w/ Float Switch
2-Quick Coupler Fittings
Wall Mount Flange Assembly
