Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond by Brad Lancaster

Greywater Plumbers & Landscapers

See below for both installers of in-house greywater plumbing and landscapers familiar with greywater harvesting who can design and implement the associated planting, earthworks, and outdoor plumbing. Providers who are known to provide all these services are listed in magenta. If services are not specified, contact the provider for details of what they offer.

Note: the better you understand what you need – the better. That way you can convey this to those you hire, and better ensure they do things right. That’s why I highly recommend you read the greywater harvesting chapter of “Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond, Volume 2” by Brad Lancaster and “Create an Oasis with Greywater” by Art Ludwig before you begin.

Ask the plumbers, and the trainers of the plumbers, whether they have experience with gravity-fed greywater stubouts and greywater systems such as Art Ludwig’s “branched drain greywater systems” or the “multi-pipe” laundry drains I feature in my books. I find these gravity-fed systems to be the most efficient, trouble-free, and economical systems. Nonetheless, the more complex, trouble-prone, and less-efficient tank and pump systems are what are pushed by many codes and industry wanting to sell more product — that’s why I recommend you ask.
