Rain & Grey Water Capturing System

Imagine opening a tap and not a single drop of water comes out.  This is the reality that we all face if we don’t start conserving water right now. Pieter & I have been talking about this for years and when the City of Cape Town enforced level 3 water restrictions from 1 November 2016, we decided to design and install a rain and grey water collection system at our home.  The Ecogator Grey Water System that we bought was fairly self-contained and we modified it slightly to fit in with our design.  When the 120L grey water tank gets full, it automatically pumps water to the 1000L water storage tank.  For every millimeter of rainfall, we are able to capture 60 liters of rainwater.
