How easy or costly us it to set up a timed water system from the septic tank ???
A float activated pump in the septic system. It activates when level rises and cuts off when level is low. The pump is activated electrically from a timer. In Aruba the recommended timer is an Intermatic. There are 2 specific models. T101R and T104R. They are designed for outdoor use. The. R designation is important. The timer is generally set to run for 5-10 minutes at night. The cost of the timers here are around $80 at Home Depot. The pump is available in Aruba at about 200Afl. If you get one be sure that the model will not seize up if it sucks up paper or other septic goodies
Most , if not all of the resorts use gray water for their irrigation. We use it here in our community for the golf course and common areas. Sometimes there is a smell, most times not.
Our home lawns and flower beds are watered with regular tap water.
