Our Homestead

Blackwater – Toilet water – Preferably treated using a gravitiy-fed  vermicomposting system
Greywater – Everything from the house, this includes washing machine, indoor shower, outdoor shower, sink and dishwasher.
Bluewater – Thoroughly clean rainwater, main use is to be piped into the home for use in shower, sink and washing machine. Drinking water can be made using a Berkey water filter.

Filter the greywater then send it  to the duckpond (lowest pond).  Pump from the duckpond to the veggie garden and into the swale or specific trees. Greywater filter can also take in brownwater.
