BUILDER'S GREYWATER GUIDE
Installation, Standards, and Science for Builders, Landscapers, Regulators, Policymakers, Researchers, and Homeowners
Art Ludwig, founder of Oasis Design, is an ecological-systems designer who developed the first cleaners specifically designed to be bio-compatible with plants and soil. Homeowners, landscape designers, contractors, plumbers, and architects who are involved with a project that will involve permits or inspections will want this book. Clear explanations break down the arcane language of the plumbing code for nonprofessionals.
New construction details and tips, as well as essential information on permits and inspections, will help even inexperienced builders successfully include greywater systems in their projects. Included are suggestions for approaching building officials, inspecting greywater systems, introducing legislation to improve greywater regulation, and creating a successful business doing greywater system installation. This book will also help tradespeople, regulators, and researchers benefit from each others' experiences.
