What is Grey Water?
Any washwater that has been used in the home, except water from toilets, is called grey water. Dish, shower, sink, and laundry water comprise 50-80% of residential "waste" water. This may be reused for other purposes, especially landscape irrigation.
Why use Grey Water?
- Lower fresh water use
- Less strain on failing septic tank or treatment plant
- Better treatment (topsoil is many times more effective than subsoil or treatment plant)
- Less energy and chemical use
- Groundwater recharge
- Plant growth
- Reclamation of otherwise wasted nutrients
- Increased awareness of and sensitivity to natural cycles
Why a Matala Grey Water Reuse System?
Matala is a proven system used here in New Zealand and Australia, effictively cleaning grey water and disinfecting safely and at a minimal cost.
|When the Matala GWD valve is open, grey-water flows direct to the mains sewage.|
|When the Matala GWD valve is closed, grey-water from the house is diverted to the inlet of the filter.|
|The grey-water flows through the 1st filter web that retains major & medium particles such as hair lint paper detergent clogs and other|
|impurities. (The filter web: Matala Black - low density, Matala Green - medium density).|
|The grey-water flows through the 2nd filter web that retains medium & small particles. (The filter web: Matala Green - medium density, Matala|
|Blue - high density).|
|The grey-water flows through the 3rd filter web that retains small & minor particles. (The filter web: Matala Blue - high density, Matala Grey|
|- super high density).|
|Filtered grey-water is pumped to the irrigation.|
Features and Benefits:
Unit tested in a Caravan Park, Australia
Matala Greywater Diverter checked after filtering 40,000L incoming greywater: public shower rooms and laundry.
The pictures prove the high filtration efficiency, achieved with progressive density Matala filter sheets. The filter can take up a huge volume of hair, lint, soap residues etc....
A Potential Water Reuse of 130,000 litres annually for an average family of four.
