what is the difference between black and gray water?
Black water is the waste water from bathrooms & toilets that contains fecal matter & urine.
Kitchen and dishwasher water is also considered black water due to contamination by pathogen and grease. It is also known as sewage or brown water and can transmit diseases and bacteria, which can be harmful.
Black water is treated in a particular way. Biological or chemical treatment & disinfections are required to treat black water. There are several accredited treatment systems available for external use, as well.
