The book also provides complete instructions for more complex installations, how to deal with freezing, flooding, drought, failing septics, low perk soil, coordinating a team of professionals to get optimum results on high-end projects, and "radical plumbing” that uses 90% less resources.

Create an Oasis shows you how to:

  • Save freshwater by irrigating with household washwater

  • Relieve strain on your septic tank

  • Purify wastewater better without energy or chemicals

  • Greywater is from laundry, shower, sink, and dishwater. It may be reused for other purposes, especially landscape irrigation.

This 5th edition of the world’s best-selling greywater book includes 50 pages of new text, photos, and figures, as well as the entire text of our Branched Drain Greywater Systems book. Do-it-yourself Branched Drains provide reliable, economical, sanitary, low maintenance distribution of household greywater to downhill plants without filtration, pumping, a surge tank, or electronic controls.

This book is of interest to homeowners, do-it-yourselfers, back-to-the-landers, conservationists, gardeners, developers, builders, plumbers, regulators, policy makers, development workers, and researchers.

If your project is going to involve permitting, inspection, codes, or building a system for someone else, writing or applying codes, or greywater research, you will also want Builder's Grey Water Guide (book) .

Grey water systems can save water and reduce pollution. Grey Water Central has a plethora of information on greywater systems.
