They are here at last — greywater rebates from the City of San Diego! For those of you on my subscriber list, you will be receiving my newsletter on this topic today. These rebates are such important news that I am shouting it out here as well.

The rebates cover both no-permit laundry greywater systems as well as permit systems for other fixtures. The rebate amounts are: $150 — $250 for laundry systems and up to $1,000 for permit systems. Both rebate categories exclude installation costs. The no-permit rebates include materials only and the permit rebates include materials and permit costs.

The illustration above is from the San Diego greywater fact sheet. Note that laundry greywater cannot be released through sub-surface emitters because it is not pumped or filtered. Instead, laundry greywater is typically released through 3/4" or larger flow control valves under round valve cover boxes in mulch basins.
