WHAT IS CLIMATE 5?

In 1918, Waldimir Koppen developed a system of evaluating climactic regions based on temperature and humidity. With few exceptions, this system is still the most widely used method for determining the general climate for a region. He divided the planet into five regions: tropical, dry, mild, snowy and polar. Each is defined by average temperature and humidity.Residential Building Requirements

GRAYWATER SYSTEM

Greywater (or Graywater) systems allow homeowners to filter greywater for use in watering gardens, yards,plants and flushing toilets. Not disposing of greywater into septic systems keeps the septic tank and drain field from becoming overtaxed with fluids. In cities the sanitary sewer system also benefits from less volume of greywater to treat and process.GREY WATER SYSTEM
