Grey water through the dunny

Josie Lipstick posted an entry indicating that water from the 'shower and sink' could be recycled through the dunny before ending up in the sewer. I like this idea and would like to find out more about how this system might work. I wonder what elements are required? I would love an effective way of using water from kitchen, bathroom and laundry in some way before it ends up in the sewer.

I've rung my plumber to find out how to get the grey water from the tub and sink into a tank which will supply grey water for the toilet. Not sure yet of the details since I will need a pump. I would like to be able to switch back to clean water if the case arises. He said they do these kinds of jobs. My thoughts now are to get a few of the neighbours to do the same and perhaps we all could get a break in installation/refit if several jobs were to go to this company.

I currently have my washing machine water go into a fat, flexible tube. This I handhold over a 60 l tank to fill it. I need a bigger tank. Then I water the ferntree and monster plant with the grey water and move the tube to various parts of the small backyard. The water in the 60l tank gravity feeds the frontyard through a long hose. The pressure is very little so the output looks like trickle feed. Josie Lipstick

Thanks for that. Hopefully you'll be able to shed a little more light on the system soon.
