Does grey water trump tap water

We are pleased to report that our seedlings that we have planted on the 18 January this year are germinating. Although we planted 11 different seed varieties from beans, echinacea, marrows, peppers and leeks, it’s the beetroot, spinach and beans that have won the race to a sunlit finishing line. We have been using only grey water to irrigate our seedlings and now they are big and hardy enough to be transported into our prepared beds near the classrooms. Just goes to show grey water is as good as tap water to grow your vegetable. This begs the question why use fresh drinking water when we can recycle our grey water?
