Using graywater is an excellent way to recycle and conserve water, and can help you reduce potable water consumption. According to state of California statistics, a standard home generates approximately 160 gallons of graywater per day, or nearly 60,000 gallons per year. A family of four could reuse 22,000 gallons a year by tapping the rinse water from its washing machine.

In 2013, the City streamlined its permitting process for "simple" and "complex" system installation in an effort to encourage homeowners to conserve water and save money.

For more information on installing graywater systems within the City of San Diego, contact the City's Development Services Department at 619-446-5000.
