Part 1 It’s not hard to install a greywater system in your home, but it’s also not hard to do it wrong! In this info session we’ll help you get it right by looking at how systems are designed, installed, and permitted, and how to choose a greywater system that’s right for you. We’ll have all the specialized parts and a sample system on hand. Bring your questions!
Part 2 We’ll build on the info from Part 1 by actually installing a simple washing machine greywater system. Students will learn to safely and competently install the interior hardware adn exterior mulch basins that make up a classic “Laundry2Landscape” system. Students are encouraged to bring questions and info about their own sites, work clothes, gloves, and lunch.
