    Default Gray Water Washer ATOH episode

    I watched an episode of Ask this Old House a while back that showed how to plumb your washer to use the grey water to water your outside plants. I am currently living in a drought area and wish to do the same to my washer but am fighting city hall who are telling me it is against "code" to use gray water in your yard. I would like to see this episode again to get more facts so I may contact the town to see what information I can obtain to get our "codes" changed so we can use grey water.
    Thanks,
    Gloria

    Don't bother. Have you ever heard the saying: "you can't fight city hall?" that's exactly what you have here.

    And don't discharge gray water to your back yard - that will lead to fines.

    The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
