Heard about grey water? Here is how you can use it effectively

If you think you need fresh water all the time, you are wrong!
There is something called grey water which can make things easier in terms of water conservation.
Grey water is the relatively clean wastewater from sinks, washing machines and other kitchen appliances. It does not include the water that has come in contact with human faeces or toiletry disposals.
On a daily basis, a lot of grey water is collected and simply left to go down the drains. Well, we agree that it may look dirty but still it’s a safe option for the plants. The logic remains simple here- if this water goes and gets mixed with the natural sources of water like water like rivers, lakes or the ocean, it can become a potent pollutant. But, if you collect the same and water the plants, it can work great as a fertilizer.
In India, people need to simply let go off the notion that grey water is dirty. Yes, it’s not fit for human consumption, but useful for many other purposes. Simply connect a pipe to your kitchen sink or washing machine outlet and use the water for gardening, watering plants.
The actual result will be seen in the water bills! Many households need to buy additional water for cleaning, garage, gardening purpose, etc. By using grey water, you not only save water but also lot of money!
But, there are some things to keep in mind while using grey water. You cannot store grey water for more than 18-24 hours as it could cause bad odour. It’s for instant use, as quickly as you can. Also, it’s important to match the level of water needed by the plants- you can’t overuse it and end up damaging their natural growth.
So, try saving grey water and you could be a water ambassador! Have you done something similar to save water that you would like to share with the world? Tell us here: http://waterambassador.livpure.in/
