The BRAC System collects and filters water from the shower, laundry, and sink, and re-routes the water to be recycled for toilet use or irrigation. The BRAC water filter can be integrated to filter harvested rain water. The system saves about one-third of the total household water usage. It is installed by a plumber and can easily be integrated into an existing plumbing system. And while gray water is typically delivered to the filter by gravity, it is still possible to use it in a single-story residence by utilizing a sump basin to collect the gray water and a sump pump to send it through the filter.

A 39 gallon tank, appropriate for a residence of three people, costs approximately $1,800.
