Waste water from all sources in a property other than toilets is known as grey water. Most grey water recycling systems collect and treat waste water from showers, baths and wash basins, excluding the more contaminated water from washing machines, kitchen sinks and dishwashers.
Grey water recycling systems collect this water, treat it and re-use it for purposes that do not require drinking water quality. This recycled water can be used to flush toilets, water gardens and sometimes feed washing machines.
Grey water recycling systems can be installed in new or existing buildings and have the potential to meet a significant proportion of domestic demand for water.
By using a grey water harvesting system you can make up to a 30% reduction in water consumption, reducing water bills without changing the house holder’s behaviour. These systems are easy to install and maintain.
