What if the well could produce 40 to 60 per cent less and still meet the needs of the homeowner? Herein lie some of the benefits of a water recycling system using greywater.

When geothermal technology first entered the marketplace in southern Ontario some 30 years ago, ground water specialists embraced it as a viable way to expand their businesses given the associated demand for open loop water well systems.
