The greywater home basic is our domestic grey water recycling system, designed to collect discharge from wash-hand basins, showers, and baths for reuse in WC flushing. Simple and effective the greywater home basic is the most cost-effective solution on the market.

Recycling grey water has many benefits ranging from the obvious reduction in water bills all the way to the more hidden benefits, for example, achieving planning approval by limiting the impact a new development will have on surface run-off.

By Recycling your own grey water, you are reducing the amount of potable water required in your household, in turn, this reduces the load on public water treatment and wastewater treatment; with continued urbanisation and ongoing housing shortages, this is a long-term problem that as a society we need to act upon. If we all make small changes, we can help save the planet’s most precious resource – clean drinking water.

 

System Process

Water is collected from the wash hand basins, showers, and baths. This discharge is kept separate from the other household foul water discharge.

The water is directed to the underground chamber, where it passes through a coarse pre-filter built-in to the greywater home underground tank. Inside the underground tank the water is circulated and disinfected with Bromine tablets. It is then pumped via the built-in submersible pump up to the header tank.

While being pumped to the header tank the water passes through an activated carbon cartridge filter which removes particulates and excess Bromine from the disinfection process.

The header tank contains an automatic, mechanical mains water back-up system. In the event of a power failure, or equipment failure the system will continue to feed the WC’s with mains water. The greywater home mains top-up system contains a WRAS compliant category 5 type AB airgap to ensure the prevention of cross-contamination with the potable supply.

Installation + Maintenance

Our greywater home basic has been designed to be simple to maintain and install. The installation can be completed by an experienced DIY enthusiast or local plumber. The system can be installed in most retrofit situations; however, it is recommended for new-builds and major renovation/refurbishment projects.

Full installation instructions and on-demand advice is available from Aquaco throughout the installation process.

The maintenance schedule is simple too. Every few months the underground requires 2-3 Bromine tablets, and every 3-6 months the carbon filter cartridge will need replacing. Both items are available from Aquaco at a minimal cost. Every few years the underground tank will require cleaning and rinsing, this can be done simply with a hose.
