Recycling of Grey water generated from different industries by using the natural filter materials and making the water reusable for sanitary and irrigation purposes. The aim is to reduce the costly recyclable process of grey water to its minimum cost, hence making it suitable for village and low-income areas when such water can be treated at place with less cost and by achieving almost same quality of water. In view of rising concern about pollution of water bodies due to discharge of waste in them, it is necessary to initiate alternative thinking as conventional methods through Sewage treatment Plants have had limited success. In Rural areas we have some natural materials which can purify the water if used properly. In recent years many techniques by using such natural filters for purifying Grey water had came up. It treats the wastewater in natural manner without the use of chemicals. In short, the method used for this project is the improved method of using natural materials for recycling Grey water and obtaining best quality of recycled Grey water. The main objective of present research work is to provide and popularize a simple, feasible, practically sound, ecofriendly and cost-effective technology for wastewater treatment. In this filter the filtration is done by gravitational force. By using such Techniques, the load on the sewage impact will be reduced and will be converted into useable water for sanitary, gardening and irrigation purposes.
