How it Works

The AquaReuse filter is a multi chambered device which enables a single pass from a domestic, commercial or industrial greywater source to trickle through various process tiers, resulting in clean, highly oxygenated "reuse water". It's compact, odour free, easy to install, totally free of chemicals and low in cost.

The AquaReuse Grey Water Treatment System comprises 4 main components:

  1. A Hydraulic Buffer System - which receives and holds the peak flows from the house and then pumps the grey water to the Filter system over a 24 hour period. Capacity 1,000 Litres.
  2. The Treatment System - a gravity feed system allowing grey water to pass through precisely positioned living filter beds each housing specific species that remove the organics while re-oxygenating the water naturally.
  3. The Disinfection System - Disinfects the treated re-use water allowing it to be stored ready for use in irrigation, toilet flushing and above ground gardening uses.
  4. The Storage System for treated water - holding treated water fit for and ready re-use.

Easily Assembled

With the internal processes showing such great results we needed to ensure that the external AquaReuse (GWTS) also met the structural, statutory and practical aspects in keeping with the surrounding environment. Our independent product designers have manufactured the installation kit which is easily re-assembled on site without the need for additional fixings or fastenings. The kit is light weight, easily handled by two men and transported via a standard utility and can also be palletised.

The filter can be fitted with a range of appealing covers to maintain the landscape surroundings of the yard. Storage tanks can be below ground.

The unique features which provide AquaReuse with a competitive advantage within the marketplace include:

  • Small Footprint

  • Stable Water

  • Safe, meeting all World Health Standards

  • Easy to assemble and install

  • Continuous operational monitoring

  • Easy to maintain (low cost)

  • Modular enabling easy expansion or upgrading

  • A low power user, Chemical free & Odour free

  • No user interface required

Facts and Figures

Figures from "Sydney Water" show savings in an average 3-4 bedroom home (i.e. 4 to 5 residents) of over 500 litres per house per day, are easily achievable.

Typical Household Water Usage

  • Toilet 15 to 20%
  • Washing 35 to 45%
  • Gardening 35 to 45%
  • With drinking only 1%

Our treatment system will greatly assist many Australian households, industries and commercial operators by providing an alternate water source for use in a number of applications that are often under compulsory restriction.

Reuse Water can be used in the following ways...

  • Watering lawns and gardens
  • Washing the car
  • Cleaning windows
  • Hosing pathways
  • Toilet flushing
  • Fountains
  • Cooling towers
