North Humberside, United Kingdom
At the beginning of this season due to my water butt not receiving any water from above I decided to connect all the water from my baths, showers and wash hand basin to a water butt that is then connected via a pipe to 4 water butts round my greenhouse.
This is connected to a submerged water pump in one of the water butts and that is then connected via hozelock connection to my hosepipe, enabling free watering every day.
However I have just been listening to the news regarding e coli in cucumbers and tomatoes watered with contaminated water.
My plants appear to be thriving fantastic.
Do I need to be concerned?
I do not use organic shampoos soaps etc
Many thanks for your replies :)
Did not expect such a quick response,and am not sure if I should be putting my reply on here or not as am new to this great site.
My grey water does not have any connection to sewerage etc so I guess I am safe thankfully.
Will let you know how I my yields do :)
