Grey water system reprocess & installation requirements

What is Greywater? This is the secondhand water from shower, washbasin, bathing tub and laundry.

Absolutely no TOILET WATER.

A greywater diversion device: A simple device which is usually installed on the outlet waste pipe on the laundry tub. A by-pass unit permits you to manually deviate the laundry water from the sewage system and into a sub-soil irrigation line. Some diversion systems feature a simple filter to filter out the hair and lint that go down the drainpipe. No more treatment takes place and all harmful pathogens and chemicals continue in the diverted water.

This filtration tank is less than 1 cubic meter in size. It comprises of a pine bark coarse filter on top of dissimilar grades of sand and gravel. The pine bark ensnares large particles like lint from the washing machine. The sand filter captivates finer materials, polishes the water and reduces the organic content of the exiting water. The pine bark is divided from the sand by filter textile. The filtrated material and bark will compost over time and should be removed every six months and replaced with fresh bark, available from your local greenhouse nursery.
