Reusing drain water saves costs and conserves the environment. Discharging drain water has to comply with requirements in many cases and the costs can be quite high. Thus, by reusing drain water, costs are also saved. Moreover, because of the fertilisers it contains, drain water has a value of up to EUR 2.5 per m3. Of course, this depends on the EC of the drain water.
