There are numerous 'dual pipe' recycled water supplies to new residential areas, particularly in Australia's major cities.

This water, aside from irrigation for gardens, can be used for numerous non-potable purposes, including:

  • Swimming pools
  • Shower / bath

Please check with your supplier of recycled water and the appropriate guidelines
