5.0 out of 5 stars excellent resource Dec 22 2010
Format:Paperback
All of Art Ludwig's publications are top notch, and have found several of his books very useful to me as I prepare to build a new cottage off grid. I initially borrowed this book from the library and ended up buying it because it was so handy to have around. He's the best author I've found concerning water usage at home.

The book describes the fundamentals of greywater treatment, the negatives of septic systems, several methods for distributing greywater, plumbing techniques, irrigating trees, simple low cost systems, expensive elaborate systems.

I feel comfortable enough after reading this to design and build my own greywater collection and distribution system.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Grey Area Here Feb. 8 2007
By Nate Downey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Luwig provides page after page of valuable information. Anyone wanting to reuse greywater needs to buy this book. Ludwig's branched drain systems is simple, affordable, and highly effective at using greywater in the landscape, but you can make many mistakes if you don't heed the master's advice. I have installed several systems based on Ludwig's work, and I shutter to think what would have happened if I had not read his books! In addition, his writing style makes for an enjoyable reading experience even though some of the material is, by necessity, technical.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, a little overwhelming Jan. 14 2008
By Dr. Who - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this book more for someone looking to convert their existing house and plumbing to run on a grewater system, as opposed to for someone looking to build a house around/incorporating a greywater system (which is my situation).
Still, an extremely specific and informative book for those who are interested in knowing every nuance of making a greywater system out of any situation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cat's Pajamas Nov. 9 2006
By Tad Montgomery - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Walk, no - run to your nearest locally-owned bookstore and order this little puppy. Art & co. are North America's foremost experts on greywater use, and they've been writing this book for 15 years. There are lots of hard-earned lessons embedded in these pages. The one thing I wish there were more of is practical advice for dealing with codes & officials in heavily regulated (e.g. suburban) environments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr Ludwig knows what he is talking about June 23 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I decided I wanted to re-use the gray water at home. I builted a new house and make a system to recolect, store, pump and then reuse my greywater in the toilets.

It was terrible. The water stinked and I didn't know what to do. I found Art website and found in his "more common errors with greywater" section that one shouldn't store or pump the greywater.

I bought the book and found the right way to do it. Now my bathrooms are odor free and I'm using the grey water wisely.

A must if you want to learn about this subject.
