    Question Gray Water Recycling

    I want to recycle washing machine water to eliminate filling up my leachfield so quickly. We do many loads a day and I want to recycle by filtering this gray water and returning it to the groundwater and possibly some for watering plants. What is the best and safest way to make a homemade filtersystem to accompolish this.

    Recycling gray water is an old idea. You can actually buy a kit and install it yourself.

    But don't use washing machine water in a vegetable garden or for fruit trees, as it may contain laundry detergent (a ton of salt in it), bleach, softner, grease, hair, dead skin, sweat and a few other choice components.
