Greywater System Reclaims Water from Drains for Toilet Flushing
|Subscribe to FREE newsletter||Jan 27, 2009|
The Sloan® AQUS® Greywater System is an undercounter system that captures and filters water that flows down bathroom lavatory drains. When the toilet flushes, a pump delivers the treated, reused water to the toilet tank. The greywater system, which is ideal for light commercial properties, hotels, residences and more, can save thousands of gallons of fresh water annually. An average two-person household bathroom can expect to save as much as 5,000 gallons of fresh water per year by using the Sloan® AQUS® Greywater System.
Sloan Valve Companys innovative, new Sloan® AQUS® Greywater System reclaims greywater from bathroom lavatory drains and reuses it in toilets, saving thousands of gallons of water annually. Installation of a Sloan AQUS Greywater System contributes to points for LEED® certification.
Sloans system funnels water that flows down lavatory sinks and routes it through a sanitizing device that cleans and filters the water. The water then goes to a storage reservoir under the sink. When a toilet that is connected to the system flushes, it pumps water from the reservoir to the flush tank.
This system significantly reduces the amount of clean, potable water needed for toilets by reusing greywater, which is perfectly suitable for flushing.
The Sloan AQUS Greywater System is ideal for hotels, schools, commercial buildings, government structures and single- and multi-family residences that have restrooms with regular, tank-type toilets. The system is based on technology from WaterSaver Technologies.
