Greywater recycling systems

Greywater is usually defined as used water from basins, baths and showers. Sometimes the definition includes water from the kitchen sink, dishwasher and washing machine but water from these sources contains much higher levels of bacteria, grease and solids.

Greywater can usually be treated with membrane filters and use of expensive rotating mechanical equipment is avoided. Filtered and treated water can then be used for toilet flushing and irrigation purposes.

Ideal applications for greywater recycling are hotels or high rise buildings with only a relatively small roof area. Only the volume of greywater produced in the building can be recycled so the viability of the project must be considered carefully.

The benefits are usually greater for commercial buildings, especially care homes and hotels. Greywater can replace up to 30% of mains water applications but is not commonly used in single private homes.
