In a world that has become so environmentally conscious in so short a space of time, the preservation of water has never been more important. Especially in Australia, where drought and shortage is a yearly occurrence, the issue of how to prevent wastage is something that will always have resonance. One of the ways in which you can conserve water is by installing a grey water system. This unassuming little machine will help you recycle your used h2O into clean, useable water again, aiding both the environment and your water bill.
Grey water is the technical term for water that contains impurities from laundry and various other household cleaning agents. Unlike black water, it has not come into contact with human waste and other dangerous contaminants, making it easier to clean and recycle. A grey water system uses advanced filtration to strain out impurities in the dirty water without resorting to harsh and harmful chemicals, resulting in purified water that can be used in the garden, bathroom, and laundry. The treated grey water can be stored for any length of time and any untreated liquid is passed through a diverter system, and is progressively expelled as sub-surface irrigation into the garden, so nothing gets wasted. (As there is the potential for harmful bacteria in untreated water, this can only be stored for a maximum of 24 hours). Since grey water makes up around 50% of all waste water going down the drain, this represents a huge saving on your water bill, not to mention a guilt-free, eco-friendly way around water restrictions.
