When Less is More

We don't often equate less as being more but in the world of greywater recycling, AQUS provides exactly that.
AQUS is a Point of Use greywater recycling system. The system collects, filters, sanitizes and stores the waste water from a sink; most often a bathroom sink. The collected water is then pumped into the toilet tank as refill water when the toilet is flushed.
During the past 18 months, AQUS has undergone design changes that greatly improve functionality, maintenance, installation and cost. So, we have improved operation with less parts, easier installation thereby reducing the time required to install, simplified maintenance and the system retails at about half the cost of the original Aqus.
One of the things that really gets me fired up is the use of drinking quality water to dispose of toilet waste. This is an inexcusable and unnecessary waste of fresh water resources that can be easily rectified in most homes and many businesses. At a cost of less than $200 US, the average return on investment is 12 to 18 months, depending on your particular installation costs if you can't or choose not to do it yourself. The ROI can be improved even more if you use it with a Dual Flush toilet.
With about 2/3rds of the US currently experiencing extreme drought condition, flushing drinkable water down the toilet is ludicrous, especially when other options can be easily and cost effectively implemented.

That's what I think; what's your opinion?
