I won't pretend to know how all this works, or that I have any knowledge, suffice to say get an expert - and you wouldn't do too badly if you get the country's leading expert who designed our system, Dr Rick Hudson of Cress Water The design has to be just right, there are as many different types of sand as you will find in a souvenir shop on the Isle of Wight. We constructed to the exact specification that Rick gave us. This is a two tier, two stage vertical reed bed that in essence filters all our black and grey dirty water from washing machines, dishwashers, toilets, showers and baths to pure drinking water ready for discharge back to the water course or for recycling back to our own drinking supply - all without any complicated media or electricity - just Mother Nature.
