Plant-Based Water Reuse

LeapFrog's Estuary looks like a beautiful planter but these pants clean greywater from sinks, showers, and washing machines for reuse in toilet flushing and irrigation.
Beautiful planters and greenwalls that clean and recycle greywater. Recycled water can be used to flush toilets and water gardens. Efficient, affordable, beautiful.

We combined the water cleaning power of wetlands and other natural systems into a compact, modular water reuse system.
  • Planet-friendly
  • Quick, easy installation
  • Sleek design

The power of plants

  • Plants make the system more resilient
  • Plants clean water better than mechanical or chemical methods
  • Plants help people be their best

How does it work?

It's easy to integrate the Estuary or Cascade into your new build, remodel, tiny home, or ADU project. Water from washing machines, sinks, and showers is rerouted into the system. Plants and microbes then clean the water for reuse.

WORKING TOGETHER

LeapFrog, Palari, and Mighty Buildings

We’re so excited to be collaborating with Palari and Mighty Buildings on a greenwall version of our plant-powered water treatment and reuse technology — the Cascade™! Read more here.

LeapFrog’s Estuary and Cascade are plant-powered greywater treatment systems. On the surface, a modern planter box or green wall adds beauty to the landscape with native and ornamental plants; inside, plants and microbes clean greywater from sinks, showers, and washing machines for reuse in toilet flushing and irrigation.
