How Do You Rig A Gray Water System?

Q: How would I rig up a gray water system without violating codes? I want my house to still be in a sale-able condition should we need to sell it. And what does one need to avoid in cleaning products when gray water systems are in place?

Editor: These are both pretty great gray water questions. From what we've heard, getting a permitted gray water system can be tough. Has anyone done it?

Also, as far as cleaning products ... 100% biodegradable all the way. Can anyone recommend any good gray water-appropriate detergent?
