Water Recycling Infrastructure

Our water recycling infrastructure consists of:

  • Gravel
  • Drainage Tube

How it Works

  • Spent water is transported via drainage tubes to a leach field where the spent water is absorbed by the surrounding soil. The spent water acts as a nutrient-rich fertilizer that facilitates organic growth.
  • The flow of spent water into the leach field is facilitated by bacteria that break down solids. Hence it is critical to avoid sending antibacterial chemicals into the drainage tube.
