Non-Chlorinated bleach ok for gray water cistern?
Hi All, Just wanted to ask if this would be ok for the gray cistern?
Thanks for answering.
I've never had a separate grey water cistern but for years I've watered my plants (all types, veggies and flowers) with left over soap and bleached dishwater and similar from hand-washed clothes. Never a problem. Of course if I was actually bleaching some whites in a strong solution for several hours to get out tough stains then I wouldn't use that water ...
Dear Opulent Villa developer, Are you asking for advice about your construction project on STJ? According to your blog, you've hired two different design firms and a landscape designer. What did your army of experts say about releasing gray water? http://www.casalafamiglia.com/index.asp
Your gray water for landscape (or otherwise) will eventually run-off into the sea. This is problem for waterfront properties. Please consider limiting your use of thirsty ornamental plants. You're potentially posioning the very enviroment you hope to profit from.
Good Day Blu4u, do you know what non-chlorine bleach is? It isn't bleach. They all are environmentally friendly and cost almost double the amount of regular laundry detergent. We do have professionals on our team who gave us the correct information, but I always like to hear what locals experiences are. I'm not speaking of bleach, I'm talking about a product that is biodegradable and very safe for the cistern as well as the island we love. In addition, non of our plants will be thirsty ornamental plants. Our area of the island is like a dessert, little rain and lots of dry sun. Have a good day.

When you've finished editing and repeating and chest-thumping, why don't you stop with the very unpleasant and unwarranted personal attacks. It's simply too bad that you don't approve of this poster's construction project but this is no cause for you to be consistently rude and obnoxious with your baiting commentaries. If your vast knowledge of construction leads you to believe that the OP is forging ahead without permits and all due diligence then take it up with the relevant authorities.
