If you end up using the sink a few times per day and not using the toilet, or say you wash your hands then leave for a weekend, you will come back to foul, sinky water in the tank and possibly pathogens. The rule for greywater is simple -- put it outside, right away, on the surface of the ground. Never store, never pump, never hide.
