How to Remove Grey Water?

Every home has grey water. This is the liquid waste that has been used in the home. Each time you take a bath, use your kitchen or laundry appliances, you are producing wastewater that is referred to as grey water. Simply put, this is water that shouldn’t all go down the drain into the sewage. There are ways to get rid of grey water that can provide additional use and benefits.

It is estimated that an Australian family of four uses an average of 1500 litres of water every day. By having your grey water repurposed, you can minimise the amount of water being used by your household and at the same time you can save money on utility bills. The typical method of getting rid of grey water is just letting it swirl down the drain.

Instead, you can treat the grey water and re-use it. An efficient method of grey water disposal is using residential grey water treatment system. This system connects to your household appliances, as well as your irrigation system. Every time grey water is produced, the unit collects and filters the water, to remove all impurities.

Grey water goes through three stages of purification:

  2. Removing disease-causing chemicals (salts and nutrients), through use of either chemicals or microorganisms.
  3. Disinfection by ultraviolet light
