Graywater Recycling

sea-cliff-home-1024x683.jpgThe Nexus eWater graywater recycling system captures about two-thirds of the waste water from a home and uses it to irrigate lawns or for applications like toilet flushing. KB Home first rolled out graywater technology in Lancaster, Calif. and Sacramento, Calif. projects. However, there it was only on a demonstration basis at model homes.

Sea Cliff is different. Every buyer of the 2,900 to 4,000-square-foot homes will have graywater technology included in the price point of their new home.

 Homes start at $900,000. In addition, these WaterSense┬« labeled homes feature advanced plumbing, drought-tolerant landscaping, smart irrigation and the graywater recycling system.

The Nexus eWater smartphone app lets users of the NEXtreater and NEXheater see system status and usage information. They can check localized data in comparison to other homes in the area and review their investment via a personalized calculation of savings based on connection to utilities.
