>>What do think is going to happen?

I have pulled my garden through severe droughts with washing machine a shower water. The soil is a living thing, and has no problem processing what ever low level of 'human waste' is in bath or washing runoff. My city processes solid waste into soil and gives it away.<<

I don't think I really expect anything 'bad' to happen. It really is more of a psychological issue than anything else. Just kinda grosses me out. Mind you it isn't *my* used water but rather the used water of a neighbor.

I wouldn't drink a cup of someone's bathwater, why would I eat it?
I know I know, not the same thing. Like I said, just me being weird.
