Rain water barrels to get water off house and sheds work. I ran machine water on back lawn and never hurt it. I have wringer washer and does not use water like the autos do. Here grey water goes to septic tank they say and or sewer. Legal now to get rain water in Colorado. Lots did, my son did. Pumped to a barrel the waher water would get thinned down with the rinse water.
Have barrel up on cement blocks or something to give it gravity feed and have a hose faucet on side of at bottom barrel and you can run the water out without pumping. I watered a little garden that way but I had to pump water and put in from the well. But did not have to carry it . Barrel by the pump.
