gray water
(grey water; gray water recycling; grey water recycling)

All water used in residential properties, except water from toilets, is defined as gray water.  Water from sinks, showers, laundry, et cetera, can be reused for other purposes -- recycled.  It is especially useful for landscaping purposes, as vegetation often thrives on the compost and particulates found in gray water.
