    Thank you, I have been designing a shower grey water system I want to implement at home and this has further inspired me and aided in my design process

    How do the worms cope in this system with hot water? I am assuming the grey water is still warm when it comes from showers or kitchen? Or do you have a way of cooling it down before it gets to the grease trap?

      Hi Nicky, the pipe that delivers the water to the grease trap is in the ground and around 20 meters long which will cool the water down. If there has been a long enough period of water flow to build up the temperature I’m sure by then the very active compost worms will move away to a cooler spot. Thanks for your comment, Tom

    I was wondering if the worms eat all of the grease (cooking oils) too?
    And is the system still up and running?
