We've had a lot of rain here recently, and you may have had problems with gray water. Gray water is water that might have contaminants or chemicals in it.

It may come up from drains (including your showers, bathtubs, sinks, clothes washer or dishwasher drains) aquariums, leaking water beds, and more. 

It is important to know how to manage your water usage and what to do with gray water and flooding.

There are many ways to reduce the amount of water you use, such as using it for garden watering ( but never use it for your vegetable plants), toilet flushing, and even installing a rain barrel for collecting the runoff instead of letting it be to the public drainage.

Treated graywater generally carries lower health risks than untreated, its a kind of prevention once heavy rains comes. Moreover, gray water mixed with heavy rainwaters or flooding, in just another 48 hours or so, gray water can devolve into black water – posing serious health risks to you and your family and increasing the damage to your home.
