How do you neutralize detergents from domestic grey water?
You get a water purifier or a softener. (A water softener wont "neutralize detergents from domestic grey water." Indeed, a softener will do the exact opposite since hard water neutralizes many types of detergents.)
Depends on what you mean by "neutralize". If you mean make the detergent no longer function as a detergent, then depending on the type of detergent there are a couple ways.
Most detergents are the conjugate base of an acid. Acidifying the solution neutralizes the base and generally significantly reduces the ability of the detergent to act as a detergent. So, simply adding acid will often "neutralize" detergents. Large amounts of vinegar, or much smaller amounts of a strong concentrated acid, can be used.
Another method of neutralizing detergents is by the addition of divalent cations such as calcium++ or magnesium++. Many detergents strongly bind to these salts and, like adding acid, the resulting compound no longer acts as an effective detergent. This is why most detergents work better in "soft" water than they do in "hard" water. Hard water contains enough divalent cations to tie up the detergents molecules making the detergent must less effective.
Grey water contains bacteria and other impurities like food. It is dangerous to store grey water, as the bacteria will multiply to dangerous levels. It can usually be used immediately on your lawns and gardens, preferably into underground watering pipes. It can also be treated fairly easily to make it cleaner.
They are three types of waste water 1. Industrial waste water 2. Black water (Toilets) 3. Grey water (Domestic waste water) Out of those Black water is not treated and the remaining two are treated. Waste water is 99.9% pure and the remaining 0.1% constitute all the waste. While salt water is 95% pure. If we develop a suitable technology we can pure that waste water and can reuse . But up to date Grey…
Tap water is generally potable water, able to be used for cooking and drinking (this depends on the country and area you live in). Grey water is used water ie washing water that is let down the drain, again this is dependant on the country and area you live in . Many people are using grey water for plants or in some cases purifying it again for drinking
Because "black water" means "water that we can't use", and "grey water" means "water that we can use". The definition of grey water is that it is waste water that is safe to use (other than for drinking) without treatment. The definition of black water is that it is waste water that requires treatment before re-use. If you have water that you can use, then by definition it isn't black. If you have black water…
This does vary with country. In regions with reticulated sewage, rainwater will usually be excluded from the sewage system. In regions short of water, 'grey water' may be collected for lawn watering and gardening. Grey water is that from bath, handbasin and shower. in this 'colour spectrum', white water is potable, grey water is as above, and black water is sewage from toilet (water closet) and kitchen waste.
Yes, if your house has a septic tank water from the sink and bath will eventually goes to the septic tank. However if your house is equipped with a fully dual grey water/black water sewage system, water from the sink and bath will first go to the grey water storage tank, the toilet will fill its tank from the grey water storage tank then flush through the black water pipes to the septic tank.
Greywater is wastewater generated from domestic activities such as laundry, dishwashing, and bathing which can be recycled on-site for uses such as landscape irrigation, and constructed wetlands. Greywater comprises 50-80% of residential wastewater generated from all of the house's sanitation equipment (excepting toilets). Water from the toilets is designated sewage or blackwater to indicate it contains human waste. Greywater gets its name from its cloudy appearance and from its status as being neither fresh (white…
There are quite a few different ways of recycling water. Grey water (from washing and showers) to flush toilets and water gardens and parks Black water (from toilets and sewage) filtered and purified for regular or grey water use Water saving schemes (like washing your car on a lawn) uses spare water for irrigation.
Water in a home comes in several grades: Potable water: Can be used to drink or prepare food Grey water: Has been used for preparing food, washing hands etc. Black water: Is contaminated with sewage Grey water can be used in irrigation (gardening, lawns) or as a source of ater for systems which generate black water.

Yes, grey water from washing machines is renewable. All water is renewable because, after we have used it, it ends up in rivers and lakes. The sun then evaporates it and it rises as clean water vapour, part of the water cycle, into the clouds where it eventually falls as rain to run down the mountains into rivers and lakes again.
