Greywater recycling systems

At present, several water recycling systems exist which can be used to

recycle the water without purifying it -or-
recycle the water while purifying or decontaminating it
Water recycling without purification is used in certain agricultural companies (e.g. tree nurseries, paprika producing companies) and dwellings for applications where potable water is not required (e.g. garden and land irrigation, toilet flushing). It may also be used in dwellings when the ''greywater'' (e.g. from rainwater) is already fairly clean to begin with and/or has not been polluted with non-degradable chemicals such as soaps (thus using natural cleaning products instead). Water purification/decontamination systems then again are used for applications where potable water is required (e.g. to allow drinking, and/or for other domestic tasks as washing, showering). Such websites as Pure Energy Systems and the Open Directory Project have indexed these commercial and diy-systems used for these applications.
