There are many countries in the world that go though great challenges to get drinking water that is much worse than your clean grey water. I love the environment and suport solar, wind power research etc.etc. But I would not be carrying it anywhere. It came from the ground and wants to go home. lol Cant find the smiley face icon or I would have one at the
Let's hope we don't get into yet ANOTHER conversation about dumping gray water on the ground. Gray water also comes from your kitchen sink, and as such,contains bits of food, grease, etc. Not only does it stink after sitting in your holding tank or bucket, it attracts critters to your camp site. The proper place to put ANY gray water is down the toilet or a sewage holding tank.

A vault toilet is just a nicer name for a pit toilet!
