lAUNDRY TO lANDSCAPE
By connecting your washing machine to outdoor piping, you can irrigate your landscape with gently used water.
L2L systems require little maintenance once installed, but there are a few factors to consider before and during use. L2L systems work best with simple irrigation systems, as the particles in greywater tend to clog drip irrigation systems. L2L also work best for large, well-established plants, as it is more challenging to water many small plants with a simple irrigation system. Using biodegradable, non-toxic detergents is also crucial with a L2L system. See Greywater Action's FAQ page for more information about L2L systems.
EXTERIOR WALL SYSTEMS
If your washing machine is on an exterior wall, installing a L2L is relatively straightforward. The general process involves drilling a hole for the greywater pipe to connect to any irrigation system. See Greywater Action's page for specific guidelines on installing an exterior wall system.
INTERIOR WALL SYSTEMS
Installing a L2L system is more complicated if your washing machine is not located on an exterior wall. The greywater must first be sent under the floor first before being directed outside. See Greywater Action's page on interior wall installations.
