I've been having a very difficult time finding a way to fully reclaim grey water for reuse in personal bathing. I'd.like to have a system going where I can reuse most of my grey water again for showers etc. And be able to collect rain or refill a tank periodically but in general remain totally off grid while still being able to shower daily.

I've seen plenty of systems for reclaiming greywater for reuse in laundry, gardening, toilets etc. But I am missing the final step. Can anyone guide me on what to look for in that last filter or potentially adding chlorine or something to fully reclaim greywater for reuse in a shower?

If you had a greywater treatment system for a homestead that featured as an end stage a greenhouse-based reed bed filter, and you were able to collect the condensation, that would be usable for washing, and probably drinking, with some filtration.

If you can establish a cell where it evaporates and condenses on a surface then drains away you will get fresh water.
It will not need any filtration whatsoever.
But to get enough for a shower each day, that may be difficult on a small scale.
This may help clean water systems
