If you have a vegetarian household a grease trap isn’t as critical. I have 4 gray water systems, one for the bathroom sink, one for the tub/shower, one for the kitchen sink and one for the clothes washer. Each consists of a conventional 2″ ABS drain line going to a buried 55 gallon drum lying on its side that has been perforated everywhere except on the uppermost side. Fill the hole around the drum with gravel, then top with soil. My trees and shrubs thrive on these systems.
