JP. It's much easier to do this kind of thing in a new project than
retrofit an existing building for it.

I'm not sure what the costs are, as such a system requires double the
piping of traditional systems, but I like the idea of re-using water

greywater recapture and reuse at

Is this something that cohousing communities are exploring?
