Welcome Art! Your work is especially important now for us with the recent drought in southern BC. We are looking forward to installing the laundry system in our front yard next spring and are starting research on the backyard kitchen water diversion - very excited. Keep up the good work.
I read your book, Create an Oasis with Greywater, just a few months ago during the construction of our tiny cabin. It is packed full of amazing information! Even links to resources for harder to find parts. Reading this book before installing my greywater setup saved me plenty of mistakes, as well as made it easy to get a functional system in place quickly. Everything except the toilet is plumbed for greywater (and we have an outdoor composting toilet for the majority of use), including the kitchen sink. We live in pine country, so I just use pine needles on top of bulkier mulch in a mulch pit, and will eventually be planting my avocado tree on a high island in the middle. So far, we have been using the system for about a month now and I haven't noticed any smells or issues with the mulch basin, even with food particles from the sink.
Overall, I thought it was a fantastic book and so well written. Very easy to understand, and generally a quick read. I highly recommend it to anyone unsure of how to start a greywater setup! Ludwig teaches you how to setup a system as simply or as complicated as you'd like, and explains how to get the most production value out of the water.
