Grey water matters
Natural and organic detergents list "natural surfactants" in their ingredients. I think these chemicals fall under the catagory of sapponins, and that they evolved for plant defense mechanisms. So I thought they would be a prime candidate to handle the somewhat harsh detergent conditions of the dirty/grey water I'm trying to recycle.
Basically I'm wanting to know which plants you reccomend for sapponins. Will the plants make use of the detergents that I'm throwing in the water, or will they fight back and make even harsher water conditions/die.
The main goal here is to take soapy water and make it safe for plants and fish. A secondary goal maybe to harvest the plants for their detergents if anyone knows about sapponin extraction/purification. Thanks!
