Using Gray Water on the Farm

It looks like the next project here will be fitting the house so that we can use the gray water in the garden and possibly with the animals (depending on how this goes). In Southern Arizona, water is an expensive commodity so we need to try to use it as best we can.

The plan is to pipe this tub from the house and to the garden. We plan on putting a fountain or something in it to help keep the water moving all the time. It is the hope that the fountain ( or spa at this point) will help to remove the bad stuff from the water before we put it in the garden. At this point, the spa makes it bubble up and we remove the bubbles from the water with a pool skimmer.

At this point we are still in the testing phase, so not sure how well this will work but we’re going to give it a try. Right now it will only be used for the trees around the property such as the mesquite trees and the apricot tree but the hope is to be using it with the rest of the plants by the end of the year and to have the plumbing done for it by that time also.

It seems like we are always trying something new to see if we can make it work. It would be nice to have the money to just buy what we need, but that is just a dream at this point.

Do you use the gray water from your house for your plants? How well does this work? Leave me a comment below and let me know.

Have a great day!
