This week Art Ludwig will be joining us to talk about all different kinds of grey water design topics.

There are four copies of each of his books, The New and Revised 6th Edition of Create an Oasis with Greywater AND Builder's Greywater Guide up for grabs. The two books kind of go together so each of the four winners will receive both books.

Art will be stopping by on the forum over the next few days answering questions and joining in discussions.

From now through this Friday, any posts in this forum, ie the grey water forum, could be selected to win.

To win, you must use a name that follows our naming policy and you must have your email set up in Paul's Daily-ish email.

The winner will be notified by email and must respond within 24 hours.

Posts in this thread won't count, but please feel free to say hi to Art and make him feel welcome!

Welcome Art! Your work is especially important now for us with the recent drought in southern BC. We are looking forward to installing the laundry system in our front yard next spring and are starting research on the backyard kitchen water diversion - very excited. Keep up the good work.

I read your book, Create an Oasis with Greywater, just a few months ago during the construction of our tiny cabin. It is packed full of amazing information! Even links to resources for harder to find parts. Reading this book before installing my greywater setup saved me plenty of mistakes, as well as made it easy to get a functional system in place quickly. Everything except the toilet is plumbed for greywater (and we have an outdoor composting toilet for the majority of use), including the kitchen sink. We live in pine country, so I just use pine needles on top of bulkier mulch in a mulch pit, and will eventually be planting my avocado tree on a high island in the middle. So far, we have been using the system for about a month now and I haven't noticed any smells or issues with the mulch basin, even with food particles from the sink.

Overall, I thought it was a fantastic book and so well written. Very easy to understand, and generally a quick read. I highly recommend it to anyone unsure of how to start a greywater setup! Ludwig teaches you how to setup a system as simply or as complicated as you'd like, and explains how to get the most production value out of the water.

So glad you're here Art !
I'm very exited to learn about and implement grey water systems. I've never done it yet but, I'm sure I will after learning from an expert!

Thanks so much.

Congratulations Steve and Rob!

I sent you an email to ask for the email address of the person that first referred you to Permies.com. That person (if qualified) will also get a copy of the book and a permies care package.
 
I think she's lovely. It's this tiny ad that called her crazy:
