Our Grey Water Recycling System

To treat our grey water on site we are looking to use the Nature Clear GWS10 in combination with a 300L grease trap. This is a simple, low cost effective grey water treatment system (waste water from bathroom, kitchen and laundry).

 

The filtration tank, which is less than 1 cubic meter in size, consists of a pine bark coarse filter on top of different grades of sand and gravel.  The pine bark traps large particles not caught in the grease trap plus lint from the washing machine. The sand filter catches still finer materials, polishes the water and reduces the organic content of the water. The pine bark is separated from the sand by filter cloth.

 

The filtered material and bark will compost over time and needs to be removed every twelve months and replaced with fresh bark.
