Direct Potable Reuse

I am researching to see if a Direct Potable Reuse system would work for a single home.
What this system does is takes waste, filters it, and returns it to the water supply without it ever going back into nature, weather it be the ocean, underground (septic system), etc.
From what i know it has only been used by cities and not by lone residences.

The system I am wanting to create would be grey water only, sewage wouldn't be a problem due to a waterless composting toilet.

There are in line filters meant to supply an entire house, using water from a lake or river. The consist of a large filter, reverse osmosis filter, and a ultra-violet filter to eliminate bacteria. As long as chemicals/cleaners such as bleach aren't introduced, I don't see any reason this wouldn't work.

Using this system should mean that I won't need a septic system, and that I can use rain water to replenish my water supply as needed instead of digging a well as long as I have a holding tank for the dry months.

What are your thoughts on this?
Anyone out there have any experience with large filtration systems?
