    Years ago we were disgusted to see raw sewerage being sprayed on crops of tomatoes and lettuce when we drove in the country areas of Mexico. No comment

    I thankfully know of at least one that does not. I understand the concept but the reality freaks me out beyond belief. Its funny, I have almost no sense of smell. That said, there are some things I smell just fine and wish I did not.

    Our home lawns and flower beds are watered with regular tap water.

    You can rest assured, your namesake is not tarnished, the correct term in the industry is greywater. This is to differentiate it from black water which actually contains the nasty stuff. Greywater from washing machines and sink drains does often appear to turn the color grey.
    7 trips in and still finding things to love. #8 will be great in November!

    haha...thanks. Seems I get to learn a lot about things I never really wanted to, but your right. Don't want any tarnishing. Could be difficult to get clean.

    Thanks for for the explanation

    If timer set at 2am or 3am. Will there still be a smell during the day ? So the poo turns into water in septic tank then sprayed ? I hear a lot of people use this. ? What make of pump is best so won't sieze up ?
