What does Greywater Solutions Treatment System Do?

The BioCell domestic greywater treatment system converts household waste water into safe, low cost reuse water (not for drinking) which can be used in:

NSW & QLD:- Toilet flushing, cold water supply to washing machine and garden irrigation.

How does the  Greywater Solutions Treatment System work?

We direct the household greywater into a 1,000 litre (below ground or under your house) buffer tank which enables re-distribution to the filter via our control system. This tank has high level alarms with an overflow connection to sewer or approved land soak away. The buffer tank uses a submersible pump to feed the biological filter. The filter is a series of process cells each providing a matrix of a living ecosystem which stack together to provide a process column. Four process columns combine to treat 800 Litres each day without the need for chemicals or electrical power and meets all Health Standards. The treated greywater is gravity fed into a UV sterilizer to kill any remaining virus / pathogens and creates a safe reuse water which is collected in a storage tank.

What is Greywater?

Greywater is household wastewater that has not come into contact with toilet waste. It comes from the bath, shower, bathroom wash basins, washing machines, and laundry trough. Wastewater from the kitchen sink and dishwasher should not be reused in some areas, as these can contain heavy loads of organic material, fats and caustic additives.

The Biocell Greywater Treatment System is approved to recycle kitchen and dishwater water in some areas depending upon local council regulations.
