VIDEO: Grey Water System at Hacienda Eco-Domes

1944   At Hacienda Eco-Domes, a successful BnB in the Valle de Guadalupe, they built a unique fun easy-to-use-system, to reclaim water from the showers, laundry, and sinks.

This is the way it works;

Water is used in the main house. It flows down into the 1st pass-through tank where it filters through sand, gravel, and dirt. Plants eat the dirty bacterias and stuff…. and it “passes-through” under the walkway to a 2nd pass-through tank. In this 2nd tank, the water is halfway cleaned already. As it passes through it gets a second cleaning. This time the plants really grow well as they are NOT overwhelmed by the bacterias and stuff. The water eventually pass-through into a storage tank and is ready for use.

The water is clean enough to use for watering NON-food plants, cleaning the patios, cars, make cement or anything else that is NON-food related.

At the property, they also clean the black water for re-use. But that’s for another day.

Oh and most of all, please take some of the ideas and use them at your home too!
After all, we all must conserve and respect the water to make our world a better place.

I am a writer, musician, performer, and producer. Over the last 10 years, I have been working on making music that matters at I love to write stuff that inspires me, moves me…makes me want to get up and shout. I love living the inspired life. I hope it comes through in my music. My background in music? I saw Elvis when I was a kid. Does that count? I also played the Nursing home circuit when I was 9. I toured with my turntable and lip-synced for the fans. It was a great way to start. I have also been in an underground punk rock band (Twisted Nixon 1996-2002). I owned a record label producing the 3rd Wave SKA band The Skeletones. But now, I am pushing my personal artistic boundaries into the 21st century creating diverse music. I also engage around the world as a global social justice warrior and political activist and syndicated writer with over 500 articles published around the world on matters of politics, foreign policy, and human rights. As of 2020, I have over 100 songs written and produced. My music is available on all digital platforms.
