Apartment Grey Water #4: Shabbat
As previously noted, my 'temporary setup' poses a problem for use on Shabbat due to the use of electricity in operating the pump. This simple solution works well for Shabbat and for the whole week, collecting water used in the sink for flushing the toilet. It seems to yield a lot of water, so i am going to try and get a hold of חסכמים for my taps. These are basically water-aerating filters that significantly decrease the amount of water we use. That in turn can save the electricity needed to heat water for showers, etc. The company that produces them is called Magictech, and they have loads of cool projects going on. Water-Aerating filters are also a more sane/mainstream option.
