Grey water


I am on a well and septic and am curious as to where my grey water (laundry, bathing, dishwasher water, etc) ends up. I understand that there is usually a pipe that leads from the house to a ditch or somewhere similar but I have been all around my property and haven't seen one.

Any other ideas?

Grey water


Unless you have special piping, the gray water goes to the septic tank. This special piping is an add-on to the regular drainage system. Some areas do not allow gray water to be drained to the ground.
