The best way I know to attack this problem is with a "WaterMiser"
recirculation unit. We have used these for some time and have found they have
proven very successful. In fact, so successful, that we are no longer
required to have a wastewater permit for our discharge to the local POTW! Though
there is some cost to these units, they seem worthwhile to us.
