KB Home, one of the state’s largest builders, showed off a new recycling system in San DiegoMonday that eliminates the need for much of the drinking water now used to quench thirsty landscapes. It would drop overall water use by as much as 72 percent. Water officials say it is the first time such a system is being installed in a housing subdivision.

The $10,000 system comes at a time when California is searching for ways to reduce water use because of severe drought. It is a standard feature in KB Home’s 52-home Sea Cliff project and routes so-called “gray water” from showers, bathtubs, washing machines and bathroom sinks through filters that remove most solids and impurities, and makes the water ready for use in each home’s landscaping.

The project, which held its grand opening over the weekend, is located north of state Route 56 in the northern San Diego city neighborhood of Rancho Penasquitos. Homes range from $890,000 to just over $1 million on floor plans of 2,892 to 3,934 square feet. Sales agent Sandro Di Nunzio said the recycling system caught the buyers’ attention

“People just see it as a great innovation. It’s setting the community apart from other builders,” he said.

KB obtained the system from Nexus eWater, founded in Australia five years ago and recently relocated to California.
