CNBC calls a home featuring the NEXtreater water recycler "a house that thumbs its nose at the drought".
Here's an excerpt:
California-based KB Home bought into the technology and just announced that it will be standard in over 50 homes in a new San Diego development. It is also demonstrating the system in model homes in Sacramento and Lancaster.
The cost is just under $10,000 per home to install, but Petroff said that price should go down as more builders buy in and the technology becomes more common. He sees it as having even more potential than solar panels.
"There is no alternative to water. That's what Californians are discovering every day," said Petroff.
