Conor Mehan from Los Angeles, Calif., writes. He lives at 1000 ft. elevation in
an area with little more rainfall than a desert. The perk rate is high. Conor wants
to reuse shower water:

Conor,

What you want is a rapid sand filter to geoflow subsurface drip irrigation tubing.
Check out the earthstar system from http://www.realgoods.com
Small, but perhaps suitable for a scale model trial.
Good luck,
Art
