Gray water tank cleaning

tank cleaning day

It takes us about 40 minutes to clean out the sediment in our gray water tank.

Anna does most of the dirty work because she's the most petite between us.

I think it's been 5 years since we last did this chore. There might be some fertile elements in that sediment, but we didn't think to save it till it was all splashed out on the ground.

Mark started calling our non-potable wash water greywater a while ago, and the name stuck. But this isn't greywater in the usual sense. Just thought I'd comment before anyone asked. :-)
