default Cistern sink

This idea is not new; they are common in Japan, where fitting as much as possible ito a tiny bathroom is an art.  Why do we not see this idea used in the UK ? Do regs require hot water ?

Mind you, it seems unlikely you'd break even with this particular one.

If we had the cash I would love to recycle grey water to flush the toilet. My sister lives in Australia, and it is standard practice to have this kind of system fitted. A bit more involved than the cistern sink shown here as you need tanks etc.
