West Sussex, United Kingdom
What gorgeous weather we're having down South. Shame about the enforced hosepipe ban and the imminent installation of water meters.
I've just installed a couple of interlinked water butts with a solar powered water butt pump. Works perfectly and I can recommend. Got mine from Garden4less.
My question - has anyone captured waste shower water for gardening? My concerns are the moisturisers, shampoos, conditioners, hair dyes etc used. I have taken over bathroom cleaning duties and so can ensure no nasties like bleach etc go to the butts. There are five of us in this household so would be such a waste if I can't sue the water.
Thanks in anticipation and enjoy this great weather!
