Is Greywater safe?


Research shows that for garden irrigation and toilet flushing it is safe!


Greywater reuse in toilet flushing and garden irrigation may produce aerosols. These could transmit  and bring a potential health risk for people. However, the result of the research shows that the health risk due to reuse of greywater either for garden irrigation or toilet flushing was not significantly higher than the risk associated with using clear water for the same activities.
