FromBuckets to Irrigation SystemsA detailed guide to help Youdetermine what is best forYour Garden!

The most important concept of this guide is waterre-use efficiency.
Diverting washing machine and bath / shower water into a few mulchbasins in the garden does save water, but is only about 20% efficient.If you would like to save up to 90% of the water, this guide is for you.
If you put 5 gallons of water in one 4 foot diameter mulch basin every day 
(150 gallons per month),
you have not saved 5 gallons per day 
In Tucson, Arizona,
that basin only needs 12 gallons for the whole of July 
for low to medium water-use plants & trees 
The actual amount saved is 12 gallons 
.The irrigation efficiency is 12/150 or 8%. The rest of the water simply drained into the subsoil, wasted.
Instead, the 
5 gallons per day could be irrigating 90 square feet 
of garden.
A family of four, easily generating 100 gallons of graywater per day,could be irrigating 
1,700 square feet in Tucson 
,or over 
2,400 square feet in San Diego 
This guide describes many different methods of re-using graywater,their efficiencies and return on investment.
