Not sure how to address your question but I have a question.
You have a sewer connection now and you want to add a gray water holding tank ?

I am a fan of Art Ludwig. I read most of his books on grey water design and such.

I would look through his stuff . There are probably other sites but I am familar with his work. I studied his papers when I designed a grey water system for my washing machine. Wanted to get it off the septic.

Grey Water (also spelled greywater, graywater, gray water)

I know out west has different requirements for grey water, so follow local codes...

This is the best info I can give you...

Oh here are good books from him.
