How is greywater filtered?

Greywater entering a Greywater Recycling System undergoes thorough filtration to ensure a high-quality supply of safe, sustainable water for non-potable use.

Greywater is filtered through the following steps;

Pre-tank Filter – a mesh filter arrangement filters water to 1000 microns (equivalent to 1mm). The Pre-tank filter is designed to remove larger debris, including hair and other physical contaminants. The Aqualoop Greywater Recycling System is equipped with a high-pressure automatic backwashing nozzle to remove excess build-up of physical debris from the mesh filter.

Oxygenation – Greywater entering the treatment tank is subjected to an oxygenation process to create a positive environment for the removal of bacteria.

Growth Bodies – Aqualoop Greywater Recycling takes advantage of a moving-bed biological reactor arrangement to achieve high levels of water quality. Growth bodies are situated within the treatment tank and have a high surface-to-volume ratio to create a surface for healthy bacteria to grow.

Membrane Technology – Aqualoop Greywater Recycling processes water through hundreds of hollow-fibre bundles to remove viruses and other harmful bacteria.
