The average four person single family home in a temperate climate uses over 20,000 gallons of water monthly. Over half of which is used for landscape irrigation; think about that, clean drinking water being sprayed on dirt! The same family uses nearly 3,000 gallons of water per month to flush toilets; talk about good water going after bad!
Our recycling system, will reduce that families municipal water usage by 50% to 70% with a similar reduction in their water bill. Of greater importance is the fact the family is doing their utmost to preserve one of our most important natural resources.
After installing our Residential System Ed Begley’s family of three saved an average of 405 gallons of water daily, an amount verified by his Los Angeles Department of Water and Power statement. That’s nearly 150,000 gallons annually.
Expand that savings to 500 families using our residential systems; 73 Million gallons annually, 1000 families nearly 150 Million gallons. That’s impact!
Using our systems water becomes a reusable asset rather than a one time commodity. Take long relaxing showers without feeling guilty by knowing the water you’re using today will irrigate your lawn and garden tomorrow. Think of the electricity and other resources saved because that water is not being processed at the local sewer treatment plant. Instead, after reuse it’s percolating down into the water table, being recycled as mother nature has been doing for thousands of years.
Both new construction and retro fit systems are available. The average family of four living in a warm climate zone uses over 25,000 gallons of water monthly! Over half of which is used for landscape irrigation; clean drinking water being sprayed on dirt! The same family can use 3,800 gallons to flush toilets; talk about good water going after bad! Our units reduce municipal water use by 50% to 70% with a similar reduction to your water bill.
For commercial property owners and leaseholders the need to conserve water is becoming a mandatory requirement. Additionally, it’s simply the right thing to do, both from a financial and environmental standpoint. At the Paul Mitchell School in Costa Mesa, our system saves 400,000 gallons annually. If LEED Certification is a priority, gray and rain water reuse adds valuable Water Efficiency points helping achieve the highest possible LEED Classification.
Fully automatic in operation, Residential Systems filter and disinfect gray water to California Health Department Title 22 Recycled Water Standards for bacteria content. A unique recirculation system keeps the water safe and bacteria free regardless of storage tank hold time. This high level of water filtration and disinfection allow the recycled water to be safely reused for above ground irrigation and flushing toilets. Easily adaptable to existing irrigation systems the Residential System provides an affordable way to automatically and safely recycle water.
Gray water to be recycled flows into a central sump basin. The sump then moves the water through a five stage filtration and disinfection cycle before entering the storage tank. On a pre determined schedule a timer controlled pump recirculates water in the storage tank through the entire filtration process to maintain clear, bacteria free water. Recycled water in the storage tank is drawn out by a pressure regulated pump. When your irrigation timer comes on or a toilet is flushed the system automatically provides recycled water. When the storage tank low (you're on vacation) a float switch automatically provides make-up water to maintain automatic operation. When the storage tank is full excess water drains into the sewer or storm drain system.
