From Grey Water Recycling
The Aquaco Residential Grey Water Recycling System involves the collection of bath and shower water which is then filtered, disinfected and recycled with our grey water treatment for the use of toilet flushing. The quantity of water used for hand basins, showers and baths is similar to that used for toilet flushing. In most buildings water consumption will be reduced by 50%. Supply roughly equates to demand as each person is generating their own water. Aquaco residential water treatment systems have been installed in homes on new estates and retrofitted to individual homes throughout the UK. Any residential home project should include Aquaco Greywater systems.
