Quality Greywater Installation

"When we save a gallon of freshwater, it's a gallon our water company won't look for in a new dam, a water transfer, or a desalination plant to provide more supply. It's a gallon that could keep a river deeper and cooler, oxygenating a salmon as it swims to its spawning grounds and preventing the growth of toxic algae. It's a gallon that emerges from a desert spring, providing lifesaving drinking water for animals. It's a gallon that can grow local food in a sustainable way without the waste and pollution of industrial agriculture."

Greywater Action

 

 

Grateful Roots is dedicated to resource conservation in the East Bay of San Francisco, especially through household water re-use. 

 

Our growing awareness of the drought in California requires all of us to engage our creativity to fashion appropriate responses.

 

So, once you're satisfied that you're saving as much water as you can in the house, it's time to think about how you can repurpose wasted water into a useful resource.  

 

Rather than mixing your lightly used water with sewage and sending it down the drain to be treated, you can treat it at home by allowing your perennials and trees to reap the benefits of both water and nutrients.

 

Rather than making sure the rain that falls on your property gets drained off as quickly as possible, "slow it, spread it, sink it."

 

We can assess your situation,* design a system, and install it for you.

Some people prefer the DIY approach, in which case we are happy to advise.

 

*Sometimes the best approach is to do nothing.

 

Our services include:

 

  • assessment and advice 

  • mapping and surveying for contours and/or slope

  • balancing water sources with water needs

  • overall system design

  • sourcing materials

  • installation of collection and distribution plumbing

  • digging and trenching

  • testing and tuning 

  • documentation & education
