The study consisted of five stages: (1) identification of water use patterns, barriers to using recycled water, and factors that may interest respondents using recycled water; (2) Preparation of questionnaires based on identification results; (3) Distribution of questionnaires, interviews and socialization at Masjid and Pesantren Daarut Tauhid; (4) Distribution of questionnaires and interviews at Istiqlal Mosque; (5) Data analysis consisting of validation, reliability, and significance test with SPSS and descriptive analysis. There are 200 respondents who participated in this research. The highest average score of acceptance is 3.47 in the Moral obligation question group.
