    No but we want to... I assume it's legal here, NH is pretty lax in general, but I haven't looked into it.

    Another site. One of the links on this site covers greywater mistakes, which I thought was interesting. It also covers some of the different state laws.

    This link shows a map of the US states that allow greywater use, and the state's that either don't allow it or don't have specific regulations in place:

    https://greywateraction.org/greywater-codes-and-policy/

    @NH Homesteader on this link, scroll down. It breaks it up by state. It looks like NH is one of the states that treats greywater like sewer water, but I'm not sure how up to date the article is.

    Lol, that's probably the real reason behind all the regulations. It always seems to come down to $$$$

    We don't USE the greywater, specifically, but when we bought the house the laundry and kitchen sink were already set up to drain out along the fence line in back and we have a HUGE wild rose hedge growing all along it. I've made several batches of rose petal jelly and rose hip jam from them.
