Interested in learning how to install greywater systems? Or in becoming a
greywater installer for your area? This course will teach you how to design
and install these water-saving irrigation systems.

You will learn about the theory behind simple and high-end systems
including the indoor use of greywater. We’ll cover basic plumbing and
landscaping skills needed for the four types of common simple greywater
systems. You will learn how to conduct a site assessment, determine which
system to install and how to maintain existing systems. Additionally you’ll
learn about what plants do best with greywater and the do’s and don’t of
residential greywater reuse. By the end of the course you will know about
proper installation of code compliant washing machine, and simple systems
under the CA state code.

There will be an optional exam and installation for people wishing to be
certified and listed on our website. The “installer’s page” contains
contact info for graduates who wish to be listed, as well as an internal
list serve for installers to share info, experiences, and get support.

What past participants have to say:

*My favorite part of the course were the instructors, which I found
incredibly knowledgeable and well prepared. **I really liked the balance
between the lecture and hands-on exercises. As someone who has designed and
taught career educational classes, I think this course was designed
masterfully and worthy of emulation. Instructing adult learners from a wide
variety of levels is not easy. –**Dorsey Moore- Principal- Sustainability
for All*

*I really loved it all, it was a great balance of classroom hands-on stuff.
The instructors were admirably prepared and incredibly generous. I really
appreciate the balance of theory and practice*.* -Leigh Jerrard- owner of
Greywater Corps and architect*

*Awesome experience, highly recommend it and I admire you both. My favorite
parts were the exercises, the groups and the final project because it
really showed we had learned. Having it set up this way is genius*. *Deva
Luna- landscape contractor and Designer/Manager at EarthCare Landscaping*

*The 5 day installer course was amazing! The teachers were both very
patient and knowledgeable…. I found it very reassuring that the instructors
were teaching systems that they had personally installed. They knew what
worked and what didn’t from experience. It was neat to meet such a variety
of people in the class such as landscapers, other plumbers and people that
just wanted to install their own greywater systems in their own homes… I
have gone from being a residential plumber to installing greywater systems
and rain harvesting systems full time. I still refer to the useful handout
binder that I received during the course when installing a greywater
system. I felt very confident installing even the very first system I did
on my own*. *– Brian Munson – plumber* (and now a Greywater Action
