Grey water is a valuable resource
80% of our domestic water used is in keeping ourselves, our clothing, our general home environments and cars clean!
In times of drought that South Africa is experiencing, instead of releasing your grey water into the sewer lines, your grey water can be utilised in your garden to keep your living space green and benefit the flora and fauna that also suffers in times of drought.
The average family of four uses 400 litres of water per day (averaging 12,000 litres a month). Over time this becomes a large volume of water of which part of it can be constructively reused.
offers 2 solutions for reusing your grey water.
- Transfer tank – for immediate release into your garden
All the grey water piping is redirected into the transfer tank. From here, once the tank is full, the pump will kick in and disperse the water wherever you have placed your garden hose. This water is not treated and is only suitable for immediate release into your garden.
- Grey Water Treatment Plant
This water goes through a biological treatment process and can thereafter be used for:
- Watering your gardens(watering your fruit trees with this water will not give them a soapy taste as it would with untreated grey water)
- Topping up your swimming pool
- For washing cars
WATERfirst offers a unique and compact design to treat domestic and industrial grey water. All the grey water piping is redirected into a sump tank that will feed into the grey water treatment plant. It feds through 2 tanks where the grey water is biologically treated. From here it goes into a storage tank and is ready for reuse. Being treated, this water will not smell like untreated grey water.
