Who says plumbing is boring? The forward thinking folks at Sloan Valve Company [2] have come up with a compact greywater system [3] for your bathroom that is easy to install and works with the existing fixtures [4]. The Sloan® AQUS® Greywater System [5] filters the water that goes down your sink drain and then uses it to flush your toilet, potentially saving a household up to 5,000 gallons of potable water each year.

This system helps contribute to LEED accreditation and could posibly lead the way for more wider adoption of extensive greywater [6] recycling systems and public education of just how important water re-use [7] is. Either way, it’s a pretty sweet gem to have hidden under your sink saving you water, money and peace of mind.
