The Builder's Greywater Guide is a supplement to Ludwig's book Create an Oasis with Grey Water. The Builder's Greywater Guide will help building professionals or homeowners work within or around building codes to successfully include greywater systems in new construction or remodeling in the US, even if they have little prior greywater experience.
Topics include: Special reasons for builders to install or not install a greywater system, flow chart for choosing a system, suggestions for dealing with inspectors, detailed review of system options with respect to the codes, latest construction details and design tips, maintenance suggestions, equations for estimating irrigation demand, and the complete text of the new California greywater law with annotations from Oasis (the California greywater law is very similar to the greywater section in the Uniform Plumbing Code, which may apply in all of the US west of the Mississippi and several Eastern States).
